We’re up to week 2 of our guide to the best Keto Friendly food to help get you through Sports September.
Last week gave us 10 amazing Chicken Wings and this week, who doesn’t love food on a stick.
Inspiration for this post goes back to our memories of a trip to Japan we recently did with the family.
It was the 30th December, we had plans to catch the shinkansen from Osaka to Hiroshima, and ferry across to Miyajima island for lunch and to watch the shrine in sunset. Unknown to us (or, more appropriately – because of a lack of research), the 30th December that year was the busiest day of travel throughout Japan. We had no reservations, and couldn’t fit onto the train we had planned. Which in the end was fortunate, as we watched people getting stuffed into the carriage, and it was standing room only. Imagine standing all the way to Hiroshima with luggage!
So we waited patiently for the next one an hour later. We ended up first in the queue, and we travelled in comfort to our destination.
We arrived at Miyajima in the afternoon, and immediately took the gondola to the summit – it was stunning and so worth the rushing around in Hiroshima to get to the ferry as fast as possible!
The last gondola down was at 5pm, it was 4:15pm, and the line for the gondola was crazy long, so we made the decision to walk down the mostly dirt path while there was still light, rather than gamble on the gondola and possibly end up having to walk down in the dark.
A few stumbles, and 45 minutes later we arrived at the bottom just missing sunset at the shrine. Disappointed, hungry, thirsty and tired, we decided to eat something.
The first shop we came across had chicken on a stick, and we dug in.
They were the BEST! meat on a stick we had ever eaten.
To this day, I am still unsure if it was actually the best meat on a stick we’ve eaten, or we were so hungry we just thought it was the best. Regardless, they were delicious, and enough to get our spirits back up to enjoy the shrine in its post sunset glory.
Maybe another trip to Miyajima will help us decide, and give us the opportunity catch the shrine in sunset.
Ok, enough reminiscing, and onto
