Curry Land: A Mecca in Tokyo for Japanese instant curry fans A unique store filled with curries from around the country, featuring unusual local ingredients. Japanese curry is a favourite meal, and one of the best ways to try a wide variety of them is with convenient retort curry packs. Retort curry refers to prepared curries, which are sold in pouches that simply need to be popped in boiling water for a while to heat them. There are thousands of different types to be found around Japan, and nobody knows them better than Sanae Inomata, the representative director of the local retort curry association, who also runs a retort curry specialty store called Curry Land. Located in Tokyo’s Asakusa district, Curry Land is a must-visit destination for Japanese curry fans, as it’s stocked with a huge range of unusual curries sourced from all around the country. Inside the store, the products are all organized by region, making it easy to pick and choose your preferred style, with different regions known for different specialties.

“Raw Pepsi,” the most refreshing flavor ever? is out in Japan Last month, Pepsi Japan caught our attention with the announcement that it had developed a brand-new Japan-exclusive flavor, which it promises is the brand’s most brisk and refreshing variety yet. Then they piqued our interest even further by giving it the name Pepsi Nama. The Japanese word nama means “raw,” and in this case refers to how Pepsi Nama is made with a special blend of spices that go through no heat processing during production, ostensibly keeping their flavors fresh and natural. Pepsi Nama hit stores on June 22. Pepsi Nama, as well as its zero-calorie Pepsi Nama Zero variant, are on sale now, priced at 140 yen (US$1.35 for a 600-mililiter (20.3-ounce) bottle

Superman to star in upcoming gourmet manga series this latest series will be a gourmet manga titled Superman vs Food: Superman’s Meals of Solitude (Superman vs Meshi: Superman No Hitori Meshi), written by Satoshi Miyakawa with art by Kai Kitago. The series will follow the Man of Steel as he flies around Japan and samples its various regional cuisines faster that a regular gourmet manga character would on a speeding bullet train. He may have taken on Darkseid and Doomsday, but can he stomach octopus eggs or talk a cook out of shaving their head when a hair is found in the food? We shall see when the first installment hits stands on 22 June in Evening #14. Meanwhile, people online are abuzz with this looming new culinary adventure. “Something feels off about a big muscly man holding a heap of rice.” “He’s American, so let him try some of Japan’s delicious American food.” “It’s Superman, but he’s doing stuff basically anyone can do.” “Superman eats rice?!” “Wait, what?” “Why?” “Japanese food is good. He’s in for a treat.” And so are we when Superman vs Food begins…probably. The synopsis says that Superman will visit some chain restaurants, cook seasoned rice in an iron pot to make the dish called kamameshi with his heat rays, and form a Justice League with the ingredients of a tempura rice bowl.
