Default Wasabi rice crackers

I know some people on here are always on the hunt for them.

They were spotted at Carrefour MoE last night in the Japanese food section where all the ethnic foods are.

If you mix wasabi with the soy sauce you get at sushi places then it's not too bad, as in way more soy than wasabi

Real wasabi tastes more herbal than the cheap horseradish concoction. It’s hot but doesn’t have a lingering, burning aftertaste. It tastes smoother, cleaner and more “plant-like” than its commonly used substitute. The horseradish paste served in restaurants is harsher and not as fresh-tasting.
MY point was that I have and I didn't enjoy it.

I hope that's sufficient.

You are right. What people generally get is ersatz wasabi. Very different. It's like saying that nasty instant coffee is the same as properly made real coffee.

Of course there is always the amusement in seeing the unwary adding far too much of the harsh stuff to their food.

Couldn't tell you the last time I had oven chips. I miss them.

Steak and sweet potato tonight. Can't wait.

Had really decent turkey and steak last night (8 of us ate out, and we shared -- I was the wrong end of the table to get any tagine, but apparently it was too salty, as usual), but bloody French cooking so barely a veg in sight, and certainly no potatoes, sweet or otherwise. You've got to have potatoes in some form with steak.
