It's that time of the year again when Isetan throws their popular Hokkaido food fair. And this year, they got a little Sapporo beer stand outside the supermarket, right below McD's coffee stand. So what better way to spend a hot afternoon than to drown it with a cup of cold beer?
BTW, their Sapporo 6-pack is cheaper than Cold Storage...
Well, I slipped in on Saturday early afternoon and it was already packed. Lots of cool stuff as expected, very tempting but for my first visit (yes, I intend to return on a weekday when it's way less crowded), I am proud to say that I managed to control myself and didn't spend much.
To be honest, they are all pretty expensive and one way I kinda stopped myself from buying most of them is me telling myself, "Hey, I saw that selling for half the price in Tokyo earlier this year!". Those scallops on sale are great but I don't think I wanna spend that much on them right now.
Almost bought some of the cold Hokkaido milk candies but they were like, only a couple of weeks away from their expiry dates. So passed on those too.
So what did I buy? Some of the stuff I got include this yummy scrambled cheesecake. Thanks Ice for the tip. More pix and a much better write-up here.
More info bout the fair here.
Also bought this bag of dried Wakame seaweed. It looks like a pretty big bag. Hope to do something decent out of it. <^;^>
