Today, Akemi and I checked out the Japanese-Canadian Powell Street Festival with our friends Nicole and Lan. The highlights (most of it food-related, natch)…
The onstage entertainment.
Guy mans the barbecued salmon grill.
Akemi discovers how HOT the udon is.
Nicole and Lan: Let the Eating Games Begin!
The spam sushi – an Okinawan culinary tradition.
Mogu – Akemi’s favorite food truck.
Akemi and Nicole knock back some chicken karaage.
My miso katsu (pork cutlet) sandwich.
Akemi cools down with a strawberry shaved ice.
I snap a photo for my blog of Nicole snapping a photo for her tumblr account.
Cosplayers drum up interest in the forthcoming AnimeRevolution con (http://www.animerevolution.ca)
I, of course, have my outfit all planned out.
I sample the matcha (green tea) ice-cream macaron sandwich.
I think it glows in the dark! Not a huge fan of the macaron portion, but the ice cream was great.
My chocolate-covered matcha (green tea) ice cream pop. “Looks like poopy,”remarked Akemi.
A nice thin chocolate shell covers a surprisingly good green tea ice cream. Poopylicious!
After the festival, we swung by Nicole and Lan’s place to check out their thriving bee colony. Sadly, no honey until next summer. 🙁
Okay. Back to that script!
