132. Tokyo - Fried Rice in a Pouch from a Japanese 7-Eleven (Tokyo: Shibuya-ku, Harajuku / 東京都: 渋谷区, 原宿)

While strolling down Takeshita Street in Harajuku District, Ken and I stopped by a 7-Eleven to take a look around.  Although I'm pretty fond of Taiwanese 7-Elevens because of the unique products sold there, Japanese 7-Elevens have some pretty interesting stuff too.  On top of the Kit Kats in passion fruit and salt & caramel flavors, we found fried rice in a pouch!

To wash it all down, I purchased a coffee from McDonald's down the street for 100 yen (about 1 USD).  Who would have questioned that it was full of beans? One can only hope that the beans refer to coffee beans and nothing else.

Being so fascinated with a single serving size of fried rice in a round, plastic pouch led me to buy another one.  This one was a Korean style kimchi fried rice from a Family Mart.  Even though it's been chilling in the fridge case, it is a great to calm any sudden minor cravings or to hold your stomach while waiting for a much anticipated meal... like our next meal at Maisen for some famous tonkatsu.  So until then, let's all get S.O.F.A.T.
