World Foods Exhibition 2013 in Osaka, South Port

Today I went to "World Foods Exhibition 2013" in Osaka with my husband.
We can enjoy varieties of World Foods here today.
 (Foods from central and eastern Europe,Asia.)
It's so exciting!

So many people!
Today is lucky day for us,because we can enjoy rare foods from lots of different countries^ ^
The air in this room was thick with the enthusiasm of the participants.
We Japanese are all gluttonous!

This is Romanian foods booth. Let's go.

I wanted to eat this "Mititei", (I think it's meat dish,) but unfortunately it has already sold out.
This is never enough to be regretted.
Instead,I bought Romanian beer "URSUS" for souvenir.
I want to try it later. ^ ^
This man is cooking seafood paella. I want to try it.
This is just what I want to eat!

This is Belgian food booth.
We can enjoy Belgian beer here. Let's try it.
She served me a delicious looking beer with lovely smile ^ ^
Wow,what a spread!
These are British dishes.
Curried Tuna hamburgers,sausages,and mashed potatoes.
We are going to eat them with chopsticks.  (This is Japanese style.)

And Belgian beer! I love it.
It has a gentler fragrance and deeper flavor,compared to Japanese beer.

Here's to your health!

Thanks for always visiting and reading my blog.


  1. I just wondered where did you buy URSUS?! Now I know! Pity you didn't get the 'mititei' I will treat you if you come to visit Romania:) It is minced meat and a lot of garlic inside and black pepper. They are very good. It is more a Balcanic dish, as all countries around us have it!

    I think you had a great day at the exhibition. Thanks for paying attention to the Romanian booth:)

  2. @Traveling Hawk,

    Thank you,Traveling Hawk!
    Yes,what a pity... I suppose many people rushed to this booth. They sold out quickly.
    Mititei suits Japanese tastes,I suppose.
    Oh,I'd really like to try your mititei:)
    Yes,it was a rare experience for us.Pity he couldn't try any beers because he had to drive a car...

  3. This adventure is interesting, and all of the food looks delicious!

  4. @Freida
    Thank you Freida! How are you doing?
    Yes,every dish has its own originality,cooking methods are diverse,but they were all delicious.
    Japanese traditional dishes are now being influenced by these foreign cookings,and now changing.

    Thank you Freida,
    please have a wonderful day!

  5. Thank you so much for posting this , Kumiko-san ! I wish I could have visited it myself... It's nice to know Japanese people are 'foodies' too :) Oh, you've made me curious about the mititei (="the little ones"). Maybe I'll try the recipe myself .
    I am glad you got to try at least one of the hundreds of special Belgian beers. Belgium is the kingdom of beer , like Japan is the kingdom of sake. No other country has so many different styles and flavours and speciality beers. ( and like a Japanese woman in London reminded me "Yes, so many kinds you have in Belgium and each has it's own glass !!" She was right, I keep forgetting this ) The Vedette is a white beer , traditionally flavoured with coriander and orange peel and when bottling , yeast is added, so it ferments again in the bottle which develops the tastes further. I haven't tasted it myself, but I will surely do so. I'm surprised that this beer has it's own Japanese website ( you can look it up through this link : ). too bad your husband had to drive and couldn't try any :(
    I'm looking forward to your next post! Stay healthy and till next time.

  6. @Walter,
    Thank you,Walter!Yes,I tried "Vedette". I love it!(^_^)
    Oh,when bottling,yeast is added? That's very interesting.That's why it has deep flavor. I wannna drink it again.
    Exactly,we Japanese are all foodies^ ^ We are enthusiastic lovers of foods.

    Yes,next time we will go there by train,not by car for my husband..

    Thank you Walter,please stay healthy,and enjoy weekend!
