Thanks for all the yummy food introductions in this thread! I really wanna try out the crab specialty stores now! Actually I am really not a fan of crab and even when I went Hokkaido and everyone is waxing lyrical bout how the crabs there are really good.

Personally I have a few faves for food in Japan but sadly I really cant recall the exact shops! But it is a must for me to have my fave cheap seafood-don at one of the small stores along Ameyokocho near Ueno Stn. I think my anago and hotate (river eel and scallop) seafood down only cost me 500-600 yen? It is really yummy too. But there I think there are 2 stalls now, and I kinda forgot which one was it already! Anyway, here is a picture!

Yeah man!

Those at Tsujiki market are kinda over priced. I only saw one at Ameyokocho, it still taste fresh & delicious plus much much cheaper then those 2 stalls at Tsujiki and no need to queue!

Since there's already tons of threads & posts on various travelling related topics, i thought i'll do up a nom nom thread

From my most recent trip to tokyo, as previous trips are all videos taken hence unable to post it here


3 of my MUST EAT snacks whenever i'm in tokyo -


This fried chicken is kinda special, as i've never had anything like it. It's skinless chicken deep fried without much batter BUT it's still crunchy!! i have no idea how they did it.

I think they have a few stores thru out tokyo, but the one i go to is near the Tokyo skytree along the road going towards the store selling Skytree Don


Your thread make me drool!
I agree that the fried chicken is yummy! I had it in Kyoto.

Not sure, but walking along ameyokocho you'll not missed it. The shop front is similar to those 2 @ tsujiki - many many pictures of the various bowl they are selling.

Hmm unless zet bro is referring to another stall
