The Wings Beneath My Wind

The latest wind from Japan brought not only dear Ollie to the shores of northern Malaysia, but also some very tasty chicken wings, a.k.a. Tebasaki deep fried chicken wings, specialty of Nagoya.

We're no fans of frozen, pre-cooked food but hang on, no one does frozen food like the Japs.


Our little family reunion, starring Ollie and his happy dance gets a boost from frozen wings that Mag had thoughtfully carted back in her luggage. Off into a boiling vat of oil they go!


The already-seasoned juicy wings get Mama Chow's loving treatment with the soy, sake, sugar and mirin mix that comes in the package.

There is nothing quite like chomping these juicy babies down while playing hide-and-seek with Ollie and wondering if being childless is what life's programme is about.

Pick some up at the frozen food section of your local supermarket the next time you're in Japan!

minchow said...

Reanaclaire, me too!! We only had 10 wings to go around and they were gone in 60 seconds!

A strange person, bazoodie? Goodie!!

Sean, hahaha, yes that is my favourite part of the conversation as well - what I'd name him/her. Everything else requires me to be rational and adult-like :-S

LFB, when are you going to Japan again? I've resolved no more travelling this year coz of the new home, but dayum those Air Asia X tickets to Tokyo are hard to resist!

CK Lam, I may go ask my local Jap grocer and see if they could bring this in. They are really out of this world!
