I never knew about Family Mart until I read about this Japanese convenience store from TM's blog. Fast forward a few months later I walked to my regular Cosway stockist only to discover that they have closed down.
In its place was this.
Family Mart has come to Damansara Uptown. When I walked in, there were so many people packed into that little shop space. Everyone seemed excited. After a brief look see, I left.
Then just some days ago when I went to the bank, I saw another Family Mart.
This one was not crowded and I walked inside to have a look.
Wah, got dim sum!
And these hot snacks on sticks.
And I finally had a close look at these. Oden. I have seen many people eating this at the Family Mart over at the other side. It seems rather popular.
Oh my! Pre-packed food. I usually can't resist these.
And rows and rows of sandwiches!
And cakes and desserts too!
I did not walk out empty handed. How could I?
Heh..heh... I bought a slice of banana cake and brownie.
I'm afraid I did not like the cake (in spite of it being made with fresh bananas) because there was too much banana essence in it. The smell was overpowering.
But the brownie was surprisingly good. It was moist (though it looked dry) and very chocolaty with bits of chocolate in it.
I was very tempted to walk away with one or two of these too. But no....
I guess if I am feeling peckish, Family Mart would be the place to get a quick bite to to eat.
Oh yes, I forgot to mention that you can buy soft serve ice cream here too. There are two flavors - Matcha and Cheesecake. That will have to wait another day :)
