You may have seen at a number of fast-food restaurants around Japan that eggs have made their way onto the menu in recent weeks. The "Tsukimi" options, I learned, are meant to commemorate the upcoming harvest moon, and the eggs are supposed to resemble that big pie in the sky. I love eggs, so of course I wanted to try one. We were near a KFC, so I grabbed a Tsukimi Chicken Filet.
Here's what the ad looks like:
Of course, the actual sandwich doesn't look quite as appetizing, but it did taste good. I wasn't sure how I'd like the combination of poached egg and mayonnaise, but it was okay with the fried chicken. Still, if you are not a fan of mayo, either ask for "mayonnaise-nuki" or find another option. The egg and fried chicken combo, however, was really good. I enjoyed it, and it provided a nice pick-me up to keep me going through the whole afternoon.
I give the KFC Tsukimi option 3.5 stars. It's worth a try if you really like eggs; otherwise, maybe just wait for the next seasonal option.
Hitting the books once again as a Ph.D. student in Niigata Prefecture. Although I've lived in Japan many years, life as a student in this country is a first.
