Chanced upon this konapun kitchen set a few months ago but i havent gonna any luck in finding them in singapore )):
SO WHAT IS THIS KONAPUN KITCHEN TOY?
It is basically like a miniature, non edible food-making kit for kids and kidults (LIKE ME!). It’s manufactured by bandai, one of the largest toy manufacturer in Japan (I WANT A COLOUR TAMAGOTCHI TOO!!! but it cost about $110 in taka and i know i will get bored of it like within a week )): )
Ok back to the Konapun toys. Starting with a basic kitchen (cost 5,250 yen in japan, ~83sgd) and you can buy expansion kits for different food which you like. The food-making process doesn’t require any heat to cook, just simply add water to the powder which are provided. This amazing magic powder is actually made from Alginic acid (a type of seaweed fibre) and different sachets contain different additives to create the desired colour and viscosity to imitate the dish. This is just like the Jap version of masak masak without the kitschy plastic food stuff or like play-doh!
Below are a few of my FAVOURITE!!!
I LOVE SUSHI!!!
The sushi set allows you to make sea urchin sushi, which is one of my FAVOURITE sushi!! but it’s so expensive in real life and the last time i ate it was like five months ago ))): It’s amazing how they also come up with the idea of making salmon roe sushi, like individual roes which look exactly like the same thing. Next up is the tuna sushi and the tamago sushi, which i never quite acquire the liking for them in real life.
ebi tempura and tonkatsu!!
I am so amused by how the ebi and tonkatsu fry with BUBBLES in the ‘oil’ mixture, and even FLOAT to the surface when it’s ‘cooked’. Just AMAZING!!!
sorbet – sher’s fav
Actually i have never been a fan of sorbet. It just tastes like crushed ice with fruit juice to me and most of the time it’s too sour for my liking. I would go for ice CREAM anytime. But i will make this sorbet and sell to sher and force her to eat it!!! MUAHAHAHA~ But this will cost like maybe ten times the price of a real sorbet plus 100 times the size of the original.
Watching these videos make me crave for yummy Jap food! Especially the uni sushi, the burst of sea in my mouth i ❤ There are other expansion kits like hamburger & fries, takoyaki, jap curry & rice etc.
Totally hearts Japanese and their creativity and perfection for things. KAIZEN spirit!
PS: the ‘food’ will not harden if u leave it aside to dry, it will start to disintegrate/rot…
