Here come Spring and Japan’s glorious Sakura ( Cherry Blossom) obsession. Plum-salted french fries is both a delight and a guilty pleasure that I have to get every year during this season. Why plum salt? Probably because cherry salt won’t offer much of a flavour and let’s be honest most of us can’t tell a plum flower apart from a cherry’s (or is it just me?) Definitely on top of my Sakura List. You can never be a true weaboo unless you have mastered the art of Sakura appreciating. Matcha is for noobs.
Help your-self, McDonald’s all over Japan serves this, and Sakura Cherry McFizz. If you order the Spring set, you can get it for 60 yen.
