There were also Japanese vendors at the festival who prepare and sell well known Japanese street food as well. Examples: Yakisoba, meat on a stick, chocolate covered bananas, fried squid, custard filled crepes (my fav!)
Me and the hubby walked around with our dog Ardie, who was very popular, he was called Kawaii so many times (meaning cute). We sampled a lot of Japanese food, the hubby got yakisoba and I got potato sticks and chocolate bananas. It was a fun day and a great time with our Japanese friends and neighbors, lots of delicious food, parades and talent shows.
After the festival, we came home to relax and enjoy a beer, expect we had only one beer left. THE HORROR! Instead of splitting it between the two of us, we decided to use in it in our weekend dessert. I've been dying to use a dark porter in a milkshake. The London Porter is one of my favorite beers. Very dark, robust and just to right hint of chocolate. The perfect base for a creamy and delicious milkshake.
