st peter's winter ale and muskoka winter beard double chocolate cranberry stout are really good, if you haven't tried them.

Z so good

The Japanese Costco foodcourt has the hot dog combo for 180yen and slices of pizza are 300 yen, they used to be 250 yen but they raised the price a few years ago. They also used to have good Chicken Provolone sandwiches but changed them to Chicken Bakes. They have Bulgogi bakes as well which are pretty good and recently changed the recipe to it.

Anyway going there makes it feel like you're back in America with idiots just running through the aisles with oversized carts and being oblivious to their surroundings. They do have a good mix of imported and domestic products, though.

How do Japanese people have room for groceries bought in bulk? I always assumed they have to live in really small spaces.

Bulk is probably relative.
What we get at a regular supermarket may be considered bulk there.
I've worked in Japan for a bit and yeah food comes in slightly smaller portions but it's not as drastic as you'd think. But things were almost always sold individually. I don't remember seeing any sort of mutipacks, but I admittedly only shopped at convenience stores, not full size grocery stores.

I did not notice that in the foreign countries I have visited, I think it's just a meme. However, I ate fast food rarely (maybe once per trip) while over seas for work because lol at being cheap when the company pays for your meals.

When did they change the bulgogi bake? That thing was amazing, and I always make sure to get one when I'm in Tokyo/Seoul.
