Food glorious food

It's always fun eating out in Japan. Not only do you have the excitement of working out what you might be eating when the dish arrives, the menus are always good entertainment, especially when some English is thrown in. Recently we were out somewhere and one of the options was to choose from the Summer Christmas menu! Then the other day, the menu 'helpfully' gave some English descriptions of the desserts. The one shown here reads - 'Shaved ice with starch ball, bean paste and green tea sauce'. What better way to end a nice meal! Actually it reads a lot better in Japanese - and the taste is not as odd as you might think.
