High quality dashi, spicy mapo soup, and pizza are just a few of the more unusual vending machines found in Japan. Japanese Twitter user Shin (@shinru72824) may have just discovered one of the most surprising yet. Shin recently caused quite a crowd to race over to Kyoto when he shared photos of a vending machine that offers classic French cuisine! He shared the photos with the caption "Near the Kyoto Imperial Palace, there's an authentic French cuisine vending machine!"

Here's some of the mouthwatering dishes we were able to spot on display! 15: Seared Tamba Highland pork Marinated Salad and Carrots Grated Apple in Japanese Sauce 17: Smoked fish and Chef's whimsical Hors d'oeuvre Salad 25: Homemade tender chicken breast Grilled vegetables Plum marinade 27: Country style pate Pate de Campagne 23: Braised beef cheek croquette Potato based & braised beef cheeks 33: Braised beef cheeks in red wine with mashed Naruto Kintoki sweet potatoes 35: Seared chicken thigh Porcini cream stew Source: @shinru72824 Source: @shinru72824 京都御所の近くに本格フレンチの自販機があるよ！ pic.twitter.com/O77DGj3gMM— シン☆お酒とガンダム (@shinru72824) September 19, 2021 Shin, of course, couldn't resist the urge to find out what French cuisine from a vending machine tastes like, so he purchased what appears to be the braised beef cheeks in red wine with mashed Naruto Kintoki sweet potatoes. He shared a photo of the meal, saying it was very satisfying, easy to serve, affordable (most meals in the machine appear to be under 1,000 yen) and beyond his imagination. He also adds that had he been able to properly plate it, it would be just like eating at a restaurant. 想像以上のコスパと手軽さに大満足！旅先の宿なので盛り付け出来なかったけどお皿に盛ればもうお店だよこれ。 pic.twitter.com/yPJOMueuNo— シン☆お酒とガンダム (@shinru72824) September 19, 2021 After sharing his discovery on Twitter, the gourmet vending machine attracted a lot of attention and popularity (as well as others chiming in to say how delicious the meals are) to the point of it currently being out of stock (as of September 22nd). Once it gets a fresh new batch, we might have to take a trip to Kyoto! By - Big Neko.
