Oh, soba noodles. I do love you, especially with sesame dressing, fried tofu, cilantro and cucumbers. What a delicious summertime meal. Thank you, Japan, for soba.
For Japan's dessert, green tea mochi ice cream. I've fallen in love with mochi, and I'm stoked that I can get it right down the street at Dong-A-Market. The taro ones are delicious, but the green tea ones are beyond belief good.
Argentines are infamous carnivores, and chimichurri is probably the best way to dress up a good steak. We'll see them pound the Mexicans on Sunday.
