Mao Asada and FOOD

As the Vancouver is busy preparing for the XXI Olympic Winter Games which start on 12 February 2010, figure skater Mao Asada is making her way into menus...

Japadog, a Japanese style hot dog stand, has launched a hot dog named after figure skater Mao Asada. The Mao dog has gold and red-coloured maple leaves made out of yuba (a type of dried tofu skin), and is created by Noriki Tamura, whose husband runs the family stand. She hopes it will bring Asada good luck and a gold medal for Japan.

Another sushi store in the city has a "Mao roll", which includes salmon, raw shrimp, shiitake mushrooms, crabmeat and asparagus, served in two rolls combined into the shape of a heart.
