We’re still craving our favourite Japanese bites, even if we don’t get to go to the Olympics
By now, everyone’s heard the news: for the first time in history, the Olympics Games have been postponed. The games were originally scheduled to start in Tokyo on 24 July 2020. But now, the world’s most preeminent athletic competition will be held in 2021.
We’ll miss watching the world’s best athletes compete (especially in the new events like 3×3 basketball and freestyle BMX!) but health is more important. And we’re so grateful that everyone has safety top of mind.
But all this talk about the Olympics has us craving Japanese food like never before. Just because we can’t go to Tokyo for the Olympics this summer, doesn’t mean we can’t indulge in our favourite Japanese bites right here in Lan Kwai Fong.
