If you eat enough Japanese snacks and candy, you must have came across this town’s name already. Since there are tons of green tea flavored snacks said to be using green tea from Uji.

Here is a little story to tell, before I start the long process of blogging my recent trip to Europe covering Munich, Salzburg and Barcelona.
4 years ago, when I moved out of the Unites States, it wasn’t the happiest moment of my life. I always try to hold on to something from the live I have in New York.

The above picture is exactly the reason I put Copenhagen into my trip: Food. You just gotta love the Danish chefs who care and realized the traditional Danish cuisine needed a face lift. The result is eating fresh and delicious food. When I was researching online, I saw lots of smorrebrod with shrimps, fish roe, salmon and zucchini. I pretty much glued my face to my screen, drooling. So I thought, Copenhagen was an expensive city, let me put it as my last destination, and spend whatever I got left in my wallet and spend it on food, guilt free.
