Project 30: Japanese Kewpie Mayonnaise…Certified OISHI!

This baby is evil. He / She / It will hypnotize you to BUY....

I went to our neighborhood Asian grocery store, 1004 Korean Mart in Al Barsha, to grab a big bottle of sweet soy sauce. Of course, being my usual googly eyed grocery shopper, I strolled happily through each aisle, eyeing interesting foodstuff for possible future purchase. I came there for the sweet soy sauce only, right?

But then…

Atop a shelf twice my size, I saw a big bottle of my mostest, favoritest mayonnaise in the world: JAPANESE KEWPIE MAYONNAISE! Gaaaaaaahhhh! My already dizzy self (with vertigo) was dizzier with excitement!

I checked my wallet if I had extra money. I knew I had some extra money…But could my money afford it? It costs 28 AED for 500 grams. Quick, non-mathematically inclined mind! Compute! It’s simple arithmetic! You can do it! I could afford it!

Tada! A new bottle of Japanese Kewpie Mayonnaise for our pantry!

And so, obviously, (I have pictures as evidence) I bought myself, or rather our wee pantry, a new bottle of Japanese Kewpie mayonnaise. The best mayonnaise on the planet…my planet at least! A little squiggle of the magic creamy, almost buttery mayonnaise on my meats or fresh veggies or bread and make my foodie heart wiggle with glee!

Though there are other brands that do try to imitate, don’t give in and be deceived by the lower prices. Do yourself a HUGE favor and buy only Kewpie mayonnaise. Look for the baby and be lured in by the welcoming chubby arms’ embrace!

Delirious about delicious,

Didi

      @ Devina: I did some research about it…Thanks to Google. It has an extra rich, extra creamy almost cheese-like flavor and buttery creaminess because they use only yolks only instead of whole eggs! Plus they use rice vinegar with apple. So you can just imagine the calories! Yummm. Hahaha!

      You should try Kewpie :) There is really a distinct diff. I will have to try Lesieur once I finish my ginormous bottle of kewpie :)

    Carrefour now carries the Kewpie Mayonnaise! No need for a special trip. Is this not the best Mayo on earth?!?!?
