Japan Australia: Bistro SMAP X Seven Eleven

You can now try specially designed Bistro SMAP menu items at Seven Eleven convenience stores across Japan. SMAP are a popular boy band here in Japan that have been around since the early 1990s. They are known as singers, actors, comedians, entertainers and cooks and host their own cooking segment called “Bistro SMAP” on their weekly TV variety program.

Bistro SMAP features four members of the band cooking for celebrity guests. Guests are able to order anything they want and the boys battle it out in two teams. SMAP leader Masahiro Nakai is the owner and hosts the segment.

This series of food items at Seven Eleven have been originally developed by the SMAP boys specifically for sale at the convenience store. The menu items went on sale on October 15th and include the following:

Comment: Well the band really sucks, especially the SMAP "leader" who couldn't carry a tune in a bucket if his life depended upon it. So hopefully the food tastes better than it looks and way better than the band sounds. I'd be ashamed to call this "Stuff" Japanese cuisine.


  1. Where are there 7-11s on Okinawa?

  2. There aren't any on Okinawa but we also cover Japan-wide stories on slow news days and global stuff when I want to rant! This fits in category two and it doesn't hurt that Japan Australia is a popular blog to boot. Who knows, you may end up going to mainland Japan for a day or two and will want to know what to avoid when you do see a 7-11!

    1. Ah, blog cross decking! Couldn't keep up!
