Kuromon Ichiba Market, Osaka

Nishiki Market is known as Kyoto Kitchen, while Kuromon Market is known as the Osaka Kitchen.  I am happy to cross both of them out of my must visit places.

At Kuromon, we had the opportunity to try out their famous scallops.  And yes, they are so delicious.  I never tasted a scallop this good, the natural sweetness of the scallop and juice is making me so happy.  If you are a scallop lover, like me, this is a must try!

Price per scallop range between 800yen to 1200yen, depends on the size.  These are fresh scallop, still in their shells.  Those without the shells are cheaper.

Besides scallop, Kuromon are famous for Tuna, king crab, beef, takoyaki, fresh fruits and many more.  We also try the octupos with quail egg here but it does not taste as good as those in Nishiki market.

So here our pics and video in Kuromon Ichiba Market, Osaka.

Nishiki Market & Tenmangu Shrine, Kyoto

We took the town-bus to the Kyoto's kitchen - Nishiki Market.

So many things to see and experience here. I can say I only know 40% of the food in the market.  We discovered some new food here among the unforgettable one are the sweet black bean and of coz the famous Nishiki Octopus with quail egg.

The octopus with quail egg is so juicy and yummy.  Price range from 150yen to 300yen each.

The sweet black bean is a black bean boiled in sugar water and then dried.  The beans are huge and kind of creamy and sweet of coz.  We love it so much, the look can be so deceiving, but it tastes so good.  It cost around 1000yen for 100gram.  Quite expensive but very exquisite.

There are fresh fruits, dried fruits, preserved fruits, desserts, fried chicken, sushi, tempura, and many other things in Nishiki.

Ohhh, I bought an Aritsugu knife and dried scallops here too.
Just walk till the end of the row and you will get to the Nishiki Tenmangu Shrine.
