The Japanese believe in enjoying ingredients in its raw fresh form. This seafood don has no seasoning, just plain old goodness of the ocean.
And we found it not in a fancy upmarket restaurant, but a small shop tucked in a corner after a long street of restaurants catered for tourists in Otaru, Hokkaido. Following the local scent led us here and this policy has not failed us once again.
Shell food from the the market to the charcoal grill, and everything just pops out deliciously.
Tiger prawns big and juicy, from the ocean to the table.
Roaring good prawning with my Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
Hakodate scallops are the best, from the ocean to the table. Savoring freshness on my tongue with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
We managed to get seats in this quaint building without reservation, and had a delicious nabe hotpot seafood dinner in restaurant Kumagera, Furano, Hokkaido.
Then we saw foreign food variety shows had featured this place. Then I googled and found it received its one-star Michelin status in 2012. It was not planned as I said. We just got lucky and celebrated our anniversary there with a beautiful dinner.
Surprisingly delighted with my Samsung Galaxy Note 8.
A simple corn croquette from Tomita Farm in Furano. Hot comfort food in 12-degree climate is unforgettable.
Pizza at The Cheese Factory in Furano. You order at a vending machine so that the staff can concentrate on pizza making. Fluffy, cheesy, piping hot out from a chimney oven. Relishing tradition served at its best with my Samsung Galaxy Note 8!
