Japanese Purin Mix

I’m a woman who loves sweet desserts. But always buying them at supermarket or kombini becomes expensive with the time. So why don’t you make your pudding by yourself? For ¥ 155 I bought House’s Purin Mix (プリンミクス) and tried it today.

Inside the box you have one pack of pudding powder and a pack of caramel sirup. You still need milk and water. For sure, the description is in Japanese. But here I give you a little translation.

1. Heat up 200 ml of milk with small fire and then give the pudding mix into the warmed up milk. Milk should have a temperature around 70°C.
2. While the mix starts to dissolve add 100 ml of water. When everything has dissolved turn of the fire and put the pudding into small cups.
3. Put the cups into the fridge for at least one hour.
4. To make the caramel sirup you have to mix it with some water and then can add it to your pudding.
DONE! (^_^)v

Eating Ramen in Berlin

When I went to Berlin to get my Working Holiday Visa we visited a Japanese restaurant called Makoto. It’s a ramen restaurant, but it also has some other typical Japanese dishes. I went there with some German friends and two Japanese girls. The waitress was happy that she could speak some words in Japanese with us.

As dessert I had dorayaki. It was very delicious even if I was already full.makoto06At the end I was surprised that it wasn’t as expensive as I expected it to be. I really enjoyed our lunch at the Makoto in Berlin and look forward to go there again someday.makoto04
