7-11 and the case of the stealthy mentaiko

I was out running errands today and before I knew it, lunch time had passed and I was feeling hungry. I stopped into the nearest 7-11 and was excited when I saw a new seasonal steamed bun in the warmer. From all outward appearances I thought it was perhaps a new kind of pizzaman - my favorite!

I quickly messaged my husband to double check with him what it was - and I’m very thankful that I did, because it was a mentaiko and cheese flavored bun!

Mentaiko has almost tricked me into thinking it was standard tomato sauce on a pizza before - so if you’re like me and you’re not a fan of it, then take this as your public service announcement! And hey, if you are a fan, then by all means this is your public service announcement to know where you can find them!



After spending the last several years in the beating heart of Tokyo, I will be spending the next three in the countryside of Japan. I adore this country and all it has to offer - and I'm always learning more and more about life here as I go along!
