The Soyjoy Japan trip! – Osaka part 3

The rest of the day was spent galivanting around Osaka. We had yummy and cheap omurice, our first vending machine ramen, I bought like gazillion pairs of shoes (what’s new?) and we went trigger happy.

The delish omurice.

Spotted Japan’s “google” store.

The japs always accede to our request to take a photo. I like!

Spotted the famous Glico man in Japan!

A common sight: Ordering your meals via vending machines.

We had wanted to eat here but it was too crowded and so we decided to eat…

Here instead!

Here’s how the vending machine orders work.

1) You order via the vending machines.
2) You take a seat inside
3) The meal would be served to you shortly
4) You eat the delish meal
5) You leave.

Fast quick service! With this approach, the staff could focus on preparing and serving the food instead of wasting some time on taking down orders. With this automated service, there will be less errors e.g. waitor placing an order for the wrong food etc

I thought the portions would be small so I ordered a side dish. I WAS SO WRONG! Couldn’t finish my yummy ramen in the end!

Now.. the ramen in Singapore just tastes so blah.

Most of the eateries in Japan have bag hooks or hangars where diners could hang their bags/coats. Wonder if any eateries in SG have the hangars concept too?

After our yummy dinner, we did some shopping and retired for the night.

So many chio shoes in Japan! This is why I bought 9 pairs! (But I didn’t get this pair. I should have! damn)

Next entry! Kyoto!
