Snacks in Tokyo DisneySea

Generally speaking, snacks in Tokyo DisneySea are tastier than that of Tokyo Disneyland's. Heck, it's not only the snacks. In general, FOOD in Tokyo DisneySea is better than that of Tokyo Disneyland's. The only department that Tokyo Disneyland has an upper hand in is the amount of "Kawaii" food being served up. Looks-wise, point goes to Disneyland. When it comes to taste though, DisneySea is the clear winner.

Are there no "Kawaii" foods in Tokyo DisneySea?

Hold your horses Ratketeer. I said that there are MORE "Kawaii" foods in Tokyo Disneyland as compared to DisneySea, but DisneySea still has its fair share of visually stimulating goodies. Like the Chandu Tail for example. That's one cute rear end. Come to think of it, that's not the only rear ended food that is being served up in DisneySea. For it's 15th Anniversary, there's also this

Tucked away in a corner

An Ukiwah Bun goes for 450 yen and it can be found in Seaside Snacks in Port Discovery.  To be dead honest, prior to this review, I've never had an Ukiwah Bun before. I've never tried it because it was hiding from me. You see, Ukiwah Bun is not like your regular snack. It has low self esteem. It does not believe that it is good enough to be placed in a prominent place. Being so shy, it decided to call Seaside Snacks its home. If you'd like to meet the acquaintance of an Ukiwah Bun, you'll have to travel to an obscure corner of Port Discovery.

Is it worth the hike?

I'm still banging my head as to why I took so long to get to know the Ukiwah Bun. I really liked it. Its skin is basically "Bao" skin which I love. Soft and a little sweet. Reminds me a lot of the buns sandwiching the Mickey Handwich and the unimaginative Gyoza Sausage Bun. Unlike the Gyoza Sausage Bun which is basically an overpriced chicken "Bao", the Ukiwah Bun is filled with amazing flavor and texture. It contained large chunks of shrimps which gave it a really nice springy texture. The combination of saltiness from its seafoody filling and the sweetness from the "Bao" was brilliant. Overall, a really good snack. This was definitely worth the hike, but if I had it my way, I would move the Ukiwah Bun to a more prominent location. Man, if I was that cute and tasty, I'd be at the entrance of DisneySea showing myself off to everyone visiting the park. Come and grab a bite humans! Cha-ching!
