The highly-anticipated Frushi lived up to its fun billing. It’s a great option for kids! This sweet, dessert sushi is a great choice if you like the fruit offerings.

While Yakisoba Pan consists of noodles on bread with sauce and veggies, it’s a dish that will be unfamiliar to many festival-goers. It’s certainly interesting.

Fans of cold seafood dishes will enjoy the Chirashi Hanazushi. We were won over by the sauce!

There isn’t a strong tea flavor in the Green Tea Flan. The best part? The caramel at the bottom!
