Musubizm to Make Appearance at Marukome x MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON Booth
Visitors were treated to free miso soup with two ingredients of their choice (the ingredients offered at the booth were tofu, seaweed, dry seaweed, deep-fried tofu, corn, spring onion, tomato paste, cheese and edamame).
There was also a cute little miso soup-inspired toy, which is known to bring more flavour to miso soup when people tell it “kawaii.”
Japanese idol group Musubizm also made a guest appearance, and served visitors miso soup.
After the event, each member shared her thoughts on the event, with Nami Yamada saying that it was nice to be able to promote Japanese food, while Misa expressed her surprise at rather unusual ingredients such as cheese and tomato.
Several members also shared their favourite things to put in; spring onion (Misa), fried tofu (Eru) and nameko (Rurika). Another member, Mai Imai, revealed that she brought a pack of marukome instant miso soup to London so she could enjoy the flavour of Japan while she’s overseas.
Musubizm offered one last advice to Londoners, if you want to try miso soup, try it with a ball of rice in the morning.
