Tomorrow is Christmas, so before we begin this review, I would like to wish you a Merry Christmas! I hope that this holiday season will be filled with love and joy for you and your stomach. Tis the season to eat, eat, eat. A valid excuse to put on some weight. I love this season! Stuffing, roast turkey, eggnog, hot chocolate, Christmas ham, Gingerbread and many more. My mouth is watering as I am typing this out.
When I was living in Singapore, there was no fixed menu when it came to Christmas. Christmas dinner was whatever Mum decided to cook. This was a day of experimentation for my mother. She would usually try cooking something that she's never tried cooking before. Something different. Burrito, Chicken Pot Pie, Borscht soup, Lasagna, etc. We traveled the world through Mum's cooking on Christmas day.
Currently, I'm living in Japan and if I had it my way, I would fly back home every Christmas to sample whatever Mum has on the menu. My first Christmas in Japan came as a shock to me. In Japan, KFC Fried Chicken is the norm for Christmas. Colonel Sanders gets orders that are placed as much as two months in advance! I've been living here for 3 years now and I've grown to accept this custom. Junk food for Christmas. Bring it on! Well, bring it on until I become rich enough to fly back home every Christmas. For now, a rat's gotta do what a rat's gotta do.
Since we're on the topic of chicken, I'm gonna review the super cute Roasted Chicken on Chinese Bun served up at Huey, Dewey & Louie's Good Time Cafe in Tokyo Disneyland. I call this a Mickey Handwich. A Mickey Handwich costs 550 yen for the sandwich itself and 960 yen for the set. It's basically Chinese "Bao" bread with a piece of roasted, marinated chicken and lettuce. It is super duper cute. My daughter, Little Mahina, loves this sandwich. It's really difficult to get her to sit down quietly and finish her meal, but this sandwich does it every time. For those of you with little kids, you might want to add this to your list titled, "Dishes to shut a kid up for more than 2 minutes."
I liked the "Bao" bread used for this sandwich. It is a little sweet and soft. A really unique twist to a conventional sandwich. The roasted chicken was tender and a little salty. The roasted chicken was good, but a little too small for my liking. The combination of the sweet "Bao" bread and salty roasted chicken gave this sandwich a nice flavor. However, there were very little veggies in this sandwich. Almost non-existent.
Overall, this sandwich is definitely better than Donald's Burger, but I would not go out of my way to get it. Good, but not good enough to warrant it's price tag. If you have little kids, you might want to give this a try. If not, I suggest going somewhere else to fill your tummy.
By the way, from now till Christmas day, Honorable Rat's eBook, "Value Meals in Tokyo Disneyland" is available for free download on Amazon. That's my Christmas present to you. Download it! Read it! Give it a 5 star review! That would be an amazing Christmas present to me. Love comes full circle. I love this season! Once again, I hope that you will have a great Christmas and a very happy New Year. Lots of love. Merry Christmas!
