I went to my friend Selene's house one night because my Panget had a basketball game. I caught her having a very light dinner - a salad dinner. Selene is very thin, that's why I don't understand why she still has salads for dinner! She said that she's too lazy to cook, and that she found a salad dressing that she really likes. She showed me the bottle - it was a Japanese brand - she called it the naked Japanese baby. I found out later on that it was the Kewpie brand.
She offered me some fresh greens - I was honestly skeptical. I thought it was one of those salad dressing that didn't taste good. But when I tried the dressing, I couldn't stop eating the greens! The dressing was so flavorful - it really did taste like roasted sesame! When I asked her where she got it she said that she bought the big bottle from DEC along Wilson Street.
Last Sunday, I went to DEC just to buy that salad dressing. I was looking around the store and I couldn't find it - so I finally asked the owners and they told me the bad news, that they ran out of it. Darnit! I was raving about the dressing to my mom, too bad she couldn't taste it. Grrr...
This morning, my mom was craving for a Kani salad. We then went to a Korean grocery store nearby to buy some ingredients. Of course, I thought that the Korean store would have the salad dressing right? I then remembered, Korean, Japanese - different! Hahahaha...
I then asked my mom if there were any Japanese grocery store in our area - and she said that there was, along Timog Avenue. So when we were a bit free in the office, my mom decided to take me to the Japanese Grocery store.
When I entered the store - the salad dressing was the first thing I searched and voila - SUCCESS!! They had it in stock! :) I immediately grabbed one!! Good thing that the store had it! I was so excited to go home to have my mom and brother try it!! :)
