Today after our trip to the 6 story 100 yen store (Japanese dollar store), Michelle and I stopped at Nishin. It’s the other international store. I was excited to see these great looking hamburger buns.
It sounds crazy to get excited about hamburger buns, but I haven’t seen hamburger buns that look like this since leaving the US almost 10 years ago. The buns I normally buy are very small and always dry. I bought them and decided to make sloppy joes. As I was making them I wondered what the Italians who make my expensive tomato paste in a tube would think about an American using it to make Sloppy Joes.
