Yotchan Cuttlefish Snack: Bought this at a 7-11 on my way home mostly because of the packaging. I didn't bother translating anything about it in advance, so I was in for a surprise. Let me cut to the verdict: this is a truly awful snack. It tastes like white vinegar and salt and has a chewy yet stale texture like Bubble Tape that's been sitting around since the 90s. I gathered from the package that it was a squid snack, and I still think it probably is: little white squares of awful processed cuttlefish. At least it ... (read more) 0.5/5.0

Belly Good Cafe & Crepes Black Milk Tea with Boba: To accompany the crepe I purchased at Belly Good Cafe, I purchased a cup of black milk tea with boba. It was probably the single worst bubble tea I've had in my life. The tea had zero herbal flavor and tasted of watered-down sugar water with a bit of dairy. The boba was also complete mush, with no give and a slimy exterior. I hate wasting food, so I did force myself to drink the entire thing, but I will be scarred from drinking bubble tea again in the near future. 0.5/5.0

Belly Good Cafe & Crepes Adzuki, Srawberry, and Green Tea Crepe: On my most recent trip to San Francisco, I found myself in Japantown hungry for a mid-day snack. A quick search revealed that the highest reviewed spot was a crepe stand by the name of Belly Good, located in the food court on the upper level of the shopping complex. While I have a healthy skepticism when it comes to Yelp reviews, it is impossible not to notice a place that has 4.5 stars and over 1,000 reviews, especially given its unassuming storefront and questionable photo menu. I also r... (read more) 0.5/5.0

7Days Mushroom & Cream Bake Rolls: Because my mom is a nurse, we rarely had canned food in our house. This means I was shielded from classic American soups, including cream of mushroom. To this point in my life, I have yet to have a bowl of cream of mushroom soup, but if these flavored bagel chips are any indication, I am happy to be in my position. I did not purchase them by choice; I received them in my latest gifted #munchpak. The smell of the chips is extremely potent, with an overpowering mushroom odor, and the taste is ...

La Violeta candies: While these violet, miniature flower-shaped candies are cute, they are the worst thing I have tasted in a long time. I had to spit it out, which is a rarity. It smelled and tasted like cleaning detergent. 0.5/5.0

Bon Me Thai iced tea: Really strange flavor that somehow manages to be both intensely sweet and diluted. Very little herbal tea flavor. One of the worst things I've spent money on in recent memory. 0.5/5.0
