I noticed when I posted about the MUJI Cafe, that I had not really posted about all the great food (snacks, cookies, drinks etc.) before. At least not in detail. So here we go today!
All the MUJI stores in Hong Kong carry a wide selection of food and drinks, but those are all packaged items. There’s no fresh food in store. Still, the selection is mind-blowing and there’s always something new to try.
Of course, now being Christmas season, the shop stocks a lot of Christmas items. MUJI has a wide range of ready-to-eat cookies and chocolates, but for Christmas you can also find ready-to-make or ready-to-decorate kits in store. There’s one that allows you to make snowman – and I love the team in the shop showed their homemade version:
It does not look exactly like the ones on the website or the packaging, but it’s the thought and attempt that counts!
Of course, if you already have enough of Christmas cakes and sweets, you can buy the regular MUJI food items. There are aisles full of dried fruits and nuts…
… yes, lost of dried squid, sardines and other savoury delicacies.
You can also pick up some rice cakes, dried noodles and other snacks.
And of course biscuits!
If it my turn to pick and choose, then I always get some Baumkuchen (I love how the Japanese ‘borrowed’ this cake idea from the Germans/Austrians) …
… and the best of all, Taiyaki – small fish filled with red bean paste. Since living in Asia, green tea, yuzu and red bean flavours are my favourites. I would never had tried them in Europe (you can hardly get them there) but they come in all shapes and flavours across Asia and are just soooo yummy!
Not in mood for food? Well then grab some tea… or the coffee with its own drip-bag that my colleagues swears is the best coffee to get her out of bed and into the office every morning!
Plus lots of instant options from soups to Korean rice, Indian curry, Vietnamese spring rolls and even Tiramusi and pumpkin creme… You should have a look too, the selection is crazy! Not sure how the packages taste though, I’ve never bought them. I only get biscuits, rice cakes and dried fruit from MUJI (but then in big packs!)
