Grotesque Imitation Japanese Food


Nihon Fuumi
Originally uploaded by moglet.
Perhaps created by someone who had seen Japanese food once but never tasted it. This photo was taken at the night food market in Beijing, where a hundred stalls sold food of dubious edibility from every province in China. There WAS authentic Japanese food in China, but this wasn't it. The yellow brick in the center that looks like tamagoyaki is actually banana cake. The bright orange balls that look like uni sushi are actually hard, tasteless, artificially colored dumplings. The bamboo thing has coconut rice inside. To my knowledge Japanese cuisine never uses banana and coconut. The "leaves" are plastic.
