Mantai-ko in Japan Mantaiko What is a “mantai-ko”? It originates from the phrase “tai tai”. “Tai tai” is a term used in Singapore to refer to a rich housewife. In my case, I decided to leave my job in Singapore and accompany The Wife to Japan (she’s studying here). So I guess I’m a man in the position of a tai tai. :P Now as for “man tai KO”, well Fukuoka is famous for mentaiko! Mmm…tasty? This site chronicles my man tai life in this lovely town. I hope it will entertain and amuse you dear readers. :) Fukuoka

Well.. I just did one video in my last entry - why not another.

For those of us stuck in anyplace NOT Japan, we are quite limited in our Kit Kat chocolate selections... with chocolate, dark chocolate... I think there's an orange flavor... but that's about it.

In Japan... there are over 200 flavor varieties. 200!!!!

Here's a video that gives some of these flavors to Americans who are not experienced with Japan - and then films their reactions.

Anyhow, thanks to Julien for the heads up! 

Have a nice light snack!
