[Golden Week] Grilling Mushrooms and Vegetables
Originally uploaded by scion_cho
Golden Week is characterized by a series of National holidays in Japan which in effect would give quite a long break (at most 1 week) from work. As my work partner went home to the Philippines, I attended the BBQ party hosted by our company president, which was held at the company dormitory in Center Kita, Yokohama. Aside from the usual izakayas (Japanese pub - drinking sessions), BBQ parties are common for employer/boss-employee/subordinates bonding.
Grilled foods are also very popular in the Philippines, which you can readily see being sold on the streets: pork barbecue, liver, chicken gut (isaw), hotdogs, etc. I don't know with other countries, but here in Japan, they even grill vegetables such as: bell pepper, onions, eggplants, corn (in cobs), mushrooms etc. Now, I don't see that one being done in the Philippines. Maybe because we really are just meat lovers? hehehe.
