You-ka Maccha Tiramisu Chocolate

These maccha covered almonds reminded of Meiji's and Lottes' chocolate covered almonds.

They come in a resealable bag, all individually wrapped.

There are about 10 inside.

When you unwrap them, it looks like it has been dusted with green tea powder.

It tastes like pistachio initially and then the taste is very buttery and creamy.

Dorayakis filled with Sakura flower filling

I do not like Dorayakis or Sakura flowers, but it was interesting that Kee Wah Bakery have a new Dorayaki flavour filled with Sakura flower.

7-Eleven Korean and Japanese crossover

Hong Kong’s 7-Eleven Convenience Stores have launched a series of Korean and Japanese ready to eat snacks from March 13, 2013.

These include curry beef with rice, Grilled pork with ginger, oden, pork wontons, Japanese style chicken wings, miso soup, yuzu tea, cold noodles in sesame sauce/wasabi sauce and much more.

The main feature of this event was their ready to eat onsen egg and Hokkaido yeast bun which comes in five flavours: chocolate, coffee, pumpkin, original and cheese.
The onsen egg is the perfect poached egg with a guaranteed runny yolk centre that you just crack open and eat, so when your at 7-Eleven having a noodle, why not crack an onsen egg onto it.
The egg is pasteurized which makes it Salmonella free!

To illustrate how these products can be eaten, they have invited Hong Kong’s Truffle Queen Esther Au to demonstrate how these products can be made even more delectable with truffle held at Donna Dolce cooking studio.

As bloggers we were given first hand experience making pasta for the carbonara dish and we were privileged to try freshly shaved truffle from these huge winter truffles!
There were also other Japanese Korean snacks for us to try which are currently being promoted.

Hokkaido yeast bun with asparagus, Onsen Egg, Truffled Hollandaise sauce, Mangalica Ham and Shaved Black Truffles:

I have tried this yeast bun before and this time it tasted even better because it was toasted which removed the alcoholic vapour in it that was used as preservation.
The onsen egg, asparagus and ham tasted really nice together along with the freshly grated black truffle.
Tagliolini Carbonara with Egg Yolks, Pancetta, Cheese & Black Pepper:

Again this was such a delicious dish and the texture of the pasta was slightly foamy and springier because it was freshly made.

7-Eleven Korean and Japanese foods:

Yummy snacks that do not seem to taste like instant meals.

Thanks to 7-Eleven for organizing this event and their generous gifts.

Chocolate covered almonds which are quite addictive.


Another addictive chocolate from my friend, they are chocolate covered almonds, the chocolate on the outside has crispy bits and pieces of crushed nuts giving it an even more nutty texture.

Ribon Mini Assorted doughnuts

Got these mini donuts because the box was cute and the size of these donuts are small.

Inside the box, each doughnut is individually wrapped.

There are two flavours: chocolate and original.

The chocolate one tastes nicer and the plain one tastes too sweet.
They were slightly too oily as well.

Circle K : Noodles with imitation abalone and crabsticks

The noodle set looked delicious with imitation abalone, crabsticks and it was cheap too so I tried it.

The noodles they use are Nissin Taisho (日清大將炒麵) which comes with sesame sauce or spicy sauce.

I tried both sauces, the sesame one was more delectable while the spicy one was too spicy, but the texture of the noodles were too foamy and I did not like it.

The imitation abalone tasted like the usual surimi fare but it was shaped in abalone form.

Mini taiyakis

Saw these cute Taiyakis so got them, they are smaller than the usual ones.
There were two types, one made with pancake mixture and the other was made with glutinous rice mixture which looks white and uncooked.

There were lots of different fillings to choose from: chocolate, sesame, custard, cream cheese, blueberry, red beans and caramel.
Blueberry tasted the most artificial.

The glutinous rice ones were nice but tasted a bit dough like and there was a lot of condensation coming from it too because it was in the bag for a while so they are best eaten imediately.

It was fun watching them make it, because when they were ready, they flick them in the basket with chopsticks and it looks like little fishes flying in the air.
