Strangely numbered crepes


In Harajuku there is a place that is famous for crepes. They sell crepes with sweet toppings, and crepes with other things (sausages and lettuce, for example). The others ordered fairly normal sounding things like banana and chocolate or strawberry and whipped cream, so I ordered the Japanese looking one with rice balls, sweet beans, and bitter green tea ice cream.

One thing that was a bit strange was the display case. The crepes were conveniently numbered, so you did not have to be able to pronounce the Japanese name of whatever crepe you wanted, you could just order it by the number. And the staff knew enough English to understand numbers, I think. But the ordering of the display items (or the numbering of the menu items) seemed completely random. 77, 52, 76, 57... We first thought that maybe it was the popularity order, but there was a separate list with the popularity ranking, which was again different.

  1. Det här har inget med inlägget i sig att göra (även om jag älskar japanska glasscrepes) men när jag gjorde bilderna till helsida så upptäckte jag, av en slump, att man kunde byta bild genom att skrolla!!! Och här har jag suttit i nästan två år och klickat på varje liten minibild.. *idiot* ? :-D :-D

    1. När jag tittar på bilderna när de här "fullskärm" så finns det även en liten lista med alla bilder till den aktuella artikeln längst ned, så man kan hoppa fritt mellan bilderna som i ett album. Jag kan dock inte svära på att den funktionen alltid funnits. Google ändrar bloggplattformen ibland, antar jag.
