The Harry Potter World Food Seems As Magical As It Looks
You'll never believe what's on the menu. It may not be full of magic potions and jumping chocolate frogs but its pretty darn close. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios L.A. has rolled out its menu for the Hogsmeade village including the Three Broomsticks Pub. Ultimately, the food is your typical American grub with British charm. After all, Americans don't need an exact British menu because we already have an American wizarding school for our magical students or what the kids in the states call now-a-days "no maj". To win over any tourist, one must be impressed by food presentation, atmosphere, and service. J.K. Rowling will not let any of these circumstances go to waste as she continues to boast her billion dollar brand. Below is the list of things the menu entails and it looks pretty promising. Obviously there will be alcohol for adults and butter-beer for the kids. In my opinion that sounds like a pretty fun time and I'm sure the food has been tested by many gourmet chefs to make for perfect results. You'll be able to chow down starting April 7th. Breakfast I dare you to figure out which is the American inspired dishes and which are the British inspired dishes. "Traditional" is a key word in their breakfast presentation. You've got plenty of syrup and bacon. However there's also potatoes, eggs, sausage, croissants, and some hardy meats. Obviously you've seen these foods a million times before but its more for the atmosphere of waking up and enjoying the most important meal of the day in Harry Potter's world. Kid's Menu Automatically, the only thing that I want are the chicken fingers in this picture. Obviously the grapes look pretty appetizing and the potatoes wedges are a nice touch. And if you're going for a more Brit lunch, you can get some fish and chips. I'm sure the macaroni and cheese is delicious because if kids are eating this, it better be tolerable because they are not one to hold back their opinion. Lunch Your generic soup and salad lunch combo. Though they are presented very Panera like, they're probably named something goofy. A fish and chips dinner is always a viable fried choice if you're into that type of thing but a chicken pot pie is definitely your better option. I have to admit that the food styling of the chicken salad is absolutely stunning and definitely something that I would gawk at if served to me. Dinner Very hardy, very meaty, and very traditional. There's a lot of incorporation of vegetables and sauces to make it more authentic. The portions do seem rather large and definitely fresh. I'm not sure if I'm too impressed with the dinner since it seems almost too stereotypical American but I guess it does fit the pub atmosphere. I guess we'll just have to wait and see what people think. Dessert Yes, just go for it. Enjoy!

PRICELESS JDrama Ep 5 Recap
This is a short recap of what happened in ep 5. This is another good drama this season. Moai came to stay with Kindaichi and Saya. Moai is a bit freaked out by the residents. The kids fixed up the cart the ramen shop owner left for Kindaichi but they still don't know what to sell. Saya doesn't want to share the room with 2 men so she goes to the Lolita girl room but that girl keeps talking so she ended up not getting any sleep. The trio went to the bartender's shop and had some hotdog sandwiches. They decided to sell the hotdogs in front of their own company! Kindaichi sure is a super optimistic guy. Moai is embarrassed and wanted to go back. The crowds gather and said some bad things. Good thing there's still that young guy who is on Kindaichi's side. He asked for one hotdog and everyone started buying. This sorta thing only happened in drama. The hotdog sells really well. Moai got an interview at another company The president is doing his evil things again ending the contract with another long-term partner factory. Kindaichi's gf showed up and asked to have a talk with Saya. She said she loves Kindaichi and asked how Saya feels about him. Saya said she has no feeling for him. The gf is not satisfied and just left leaving $200 to pay for the tea on the table! I didn't know she's that rich! The president saw the long line of people buying hotdogs from Kindaichi and decided to go check it out. He went to the beginning of the line and his evil right hand mand asked Kindaichi to sell them a hotdog but Kindaichi said they should line up since everyone also lined up. The president said fine and went back to the end of the line but his employees all started making way for him. It was like the Mose's staff effect. Kindaichi had no choice but to sell him the hotdog and asked for 300 yen ( about $3.5). They are shocked that he dared to ask money from the president but gave it to him anyway. They turned around to leave but Saya called after him and asked why he fired her and Kindaichi. The president asked "Just what do you think the 2 of you can do?" Saya couldn't say anything but Kindachi said, "It's not just the 2 of us." Moai showed up saying they can serve soup along with the hotdog using the thermal bottle. Kindaichi asked the president, "What can you do alone?" Kindaichi told him the soup is 200 yen but the president said he doesn't need and left. The crowd hesitated to buy the soup but the young guy who bought the first hotdog asked for the soup then everyone lined up again to buy the hotdog and soup. At night, Saya decided to come back to the room and sleep in the middle of Kindaichi and Moai!! I guess she considered them as friends now. In the morning Yoko (Kindaichi's gf) 's dad came and have breakfast. He seems like a guy who had been through poverty. He commented that the breakfast was delicious. Kindachi asked, "Who are you?" End of ep 5 I wonder if there will be any romance between Saya and Kindaichi. It seems Yoko's dad wants Kindaichi to work for him and Kindaichi starts to work on the thermal bottle project or something. Look forward to monday!!
You'll Never Guess What People Eat At The Movies Across The Globe
Yuck. There are hundreds of countries around the world sitting in movie theaters across the globe. One big difference is the food they eat while in the audience. From dried bugs to salted candies, world customs really have their own distinct palette. Though Americans believe there's nothing in the world that could be better than a nice bag full of buttery popcorn, they are in for a huge surprise. Check out the movie theater snacks from around the world. You're going to be shocked. USA: Salted, Buttery, Popcorn It's crunchy. It's addicting. It's SO American. Popcorn is a very traditional snack without a ton of calories...that is, if you don't drench it in a pool of butter and salt. Popcorn has had a long standing reservation in our culture, primarily since corn is such in abundance within our country. We've muti-purposed corn to be just about anything but popcorn is still our favorite creation. Just remember, a small popcorn won't get you through intermission. A large popcorn will make you feel fat. But who cares, right? Great Britain: Sugared Popcorn Why am I not surprised that Great Britain would have a seamlessly more proper snack? Compared to American, the Brits always seem to do the exact opposite. From my personal view, I just don't understand the thrill of sugary popcorn. However then again, kettle corn and caramel corn is a huge success in the States. Brits are notorious for their bitter drinks such as coffee and tea paired with a very decadent and sweet dessert. I guess it's only fitting, pinkies up. Japan: Iwashi Senbei The first idea that popped into your mind was probably not that these are sardine rice crackers. The crisps are baked in sugar and soy sauce to give them their distinct taste. Rice is a very traditional food within the country so it's no surprise it is a snack as well. And with Japan being a very dependent country on its seafood industry, it's obvious that a leading snack brand would be fish based. Still interesting. Brazil: Roasted Ants Okay GROSS. As an American, I will never understand the love for eating bugs. We get it, they are packed with a ton of protein and have a nice crunch. But it's so taboo in American culture. On the other hand, Brazilians loves them. It's an aphrodisiac, or food that stimulates sexual desire, which could be the reason for why Brazilians are such a fan. Talk about a passive aggressive way to show your date that you want to hook up. Norway: Dried Reindeer Meat Somewhere in the North Pole, Santa is crying. This food seems so fitting though for the region. Reindeer meat is cut and then dried for a chewy taste. Very similar to beef jerky in the States. Reindeer meat boasts very low fat and high protein. However, I can't seem to feel sympathy for Rudolph & his gang once they find out that the Norwegians are snacking on their friends. Guess Norway is going to become the land of misfits toys soon enough... South Korea: Dried Cuttlefish I guess this goes hand in hand with popcorn in the Asian nation. With a meaty texture and briny flavor, apparently South Koreans can't get enough. It can be seasoned in a variety of flavors. Though they're also fans of roasted chestnuts, dried cuttlefish still frequently comes out as the fan favorite. I still don't know what a cuttlefish is. Russia: Beluga Caviar This is reserved for the rich and only the rich but a very common wealthy delicacy. Though the average folk may not be accustomed to eating the beluga caviar themselves, they know exactly who is receiving it when they attend the movie theater. Apparently movies in Russia are a more fancy affair, something Americans and other world countries would gawk at. With Russia being known to have extreme customs, this one tops the cake. Greece: Souvlaki Okay, this looks delicious. Lamb or beef souvlaki will be a fit for an Grecian attending an outdoor movie. They're tender and savory and it's already making my mouth water. Grecians are notorious for having the best food in the world and it's no surprise that their movie theaters also come with a wide delicious variety of choices. Please fly me to Greece because I'm starving. Netherlands: Salty Licorice This could be the most hated snack in America. Black licorice is a very distinct taste that very few people enjoy. In America, our black licorice contains a lot of sugar. However in the Netherlands, they salt their licorice with ammonium chloride which gives eaters a tongue-numbing sensation. Is this candy a drug? No thank you. India: Samosas This is my favorite. Look how good that looks! Bollywood theaters are all the rage in India far more popular than any Western movie. Samosas are potato stuffed pastries that taste as good as they look. With Bollywood movies comes a delicious combo of chutney and cheese sandwiches and vada pav, potato fritters in a bread bun. I could definitely ship this idea in the USA.
