Being in Kyoto, a foodie tourist must not miss Nishiki Market. I'm glad Kel is an adventurer with me on this expedition. Too bad photos are not encouraged, Japanese stall owners do give hard stares to those pointing cams at their products.
At Nishiki, there are marinated side dishes, appetisers, dried seafood, fruits, fresh vegetables and seafood all along the sides of the sheltered street. Over there we bought a small box of strawterries about 5SGD and all was chowed down in seconds. Every strawberry perfect, delicately sweet and fragrant, juicy and just delicious!
Imagine yourself alternating between a shop selling snacks all pretty packaged and few doors down is a grocery-style fresh food stall. It is all a beautiful contrast and a pleasure to stroll in cool weather.
You can picture our glee when Takopachi and Red Bean Fish Pancake is spotted! This is much better than the version we had in Tokyo last year. Must try :)
Of course being tourist we have to try the junk food there too. When we are rushing to catch the next walking tour or hungry just to fill out chilled tummies...
Donuts for breakfast
Lotteria-Japanese version of McD's
Asahi Beer with Seasoned Wedges at a bar
This is life!
