McDo PH Flavors of Japan Review

I first set foot in Japan just over 2 years ago, and ever since then I’ve made it a life goal to visit that awesome country at least once a year for the rest of my functional life (same as Queenie!). Besides the culture and the sights, it is the food that keeps us coming…
