My Yuba lunch set Beside known as a ancient city for Geisha, Kyoto is also famous for three food – Tofu (豆腐), Yuba (ゆば) and Unagi (鰻). Though it was not my first time to Kyoto (I have went there before during my school excursion trip), I did not really tried on the local delicacies As my friend was visiting Kyoto for the first time, I thought it would be good to bring her for those, but we only managed to eat Yuba and Unagi as the Tofu are quite pricey, around 1,500 yen (S$ 22.50).

MacDonald’s Potato Bacon Pie and McRIB Burger

Below are two that has been out recently, but for a limited time. I was quite curious on this new burger called McRIB because I was told it was delicious by my friends. Thought it has the same taste as Teriyaki Burger, but better aroma. Let’s take a dessert ! Kinda sick of apple pie… it is good that this Bacon Potato pie came to my rescue. It reminded me of Campbell’s Baked potato with Cheddar and Bacon bits soup, which are impossible to find even in large supermarkets.
