Have you ever tried nikuman?
I believe jose and anGeLine know this well!

Nikuman is a steamed bun made from flour dough, usually filled with cooked ground pork. In winter in Japan, you can find nikuman at convenience stores. They are steamed at stores near the cash register. There are many different fillings: pizza, curry, gyoza, seafood, char siu (Chinese-style barbecued pork), yakisoba, kimchi (Korean pickle), etc... Sometimes you can find strange ones like chocolate or pudding! I have never tried them, though...

The image above is packed nikuman (pork and seafood) which my mom bought me as souvenirs when she went to Chinatown in Yokohama. You can microwave it as-is (packaged)! How convenient!!! Both pork and seafood were juicy and delicious ;)

As predicted, it started to rain from today...
Hope it stops by the weekend...

Yay! I have hula class tonight!

Take care!!!
