Call it a fascination for Japanese food, especially for Japanese “conbini” snacks – since just like many others, I love the idea of bringing home goodies every time I travel. And I would be lying if I will not admit getting frustrations from our supposed annual vacation to the Land of the Rising Sun. But as the excitement and anticipation continue to build up, I ended up writing more about things related to the “supposed” travel.
So there you have a backgrounder of our series about the unique BAKALA STORES in Qatar inspired by the popular CONBINI STORES in Japan. Who knows, a food crawl – oopps, social distancing are still in effect, and restaurants are still closed here, but more Japan-themed contents might be on the way in the coming days.
Here are the 7 popular Japanese snack boxes that you should try very soon! This way, you will have a taste of Japan delivered straight to your doorsteps every month.
