The most incredible grapes

Sunday, July 26th, 2009

These are the both the most expensive and the best grapes I’ve ever had.

Kyoho grapes.

They are best known in Japan. But Taiwan and Korea have them as well. If you look at the packaging in the picture below, the price is correct. S$85 for a small box of them. That’s nearly $60 USD. So about 1-2 dollars A GRAPE!!

The best way to describe them is to describe them in terms of candy they sell in the US. Imagine the flavor of Japanese chewing gum crossed with the texture of gummy bears.

They have a very thick skin and have a seed or two each. But they are worth every dollar. You can pick up some of the cheaper varieties for about 1/4 the price. But, the difference is astounding.

I just came across this new food craze in Los Angeles, Kogi. Can someone try it out and let me know if it’s all it’s reported to be?

It’s a Korean/Mexican fusion Taco Truck. It roves around the Los Angeles region to serve up their signature foods.

I hear waits can go up to hours at a time for their bulgogi tacos and other treats. Thank goodness they keep people upto date with their web 2.0 goodness. They twitter their locations and post lots of updates on their website.
