Where to Eat: Fishmarket beside the Train Station

Dec 15, 2014

Just beside the Otaru JR Train Station, on the right hand side (looking at the Otaru Train Station from the front), there is small stairs case, and that lead up to 三角市场 Seafood Market.

You can buy fresh seafood in there, as well as restaurant that will cook the seafood you bought in there.

Let’s try it out!

It can’t go wrong when you see lots of photos and signature of the famous people hanging on the wall.

That means this has to be a famous store, and many famous people came here to taste the food.

I had never eaten the king crab before.  I could not possibly eat this in Singapore because it cost a bomb to eat it.

Let’s choose one and steam it.

This is the one I chosen.  Very fierce.

Let’s talk about the Uni and how we get them.  While they cooking the king crab.

When you are in this kind of fresh seafood store, and when you need to buy the Uni, do not buy the one I am holding it in my hand.

That kind of packaging always add some food addictive in the Uni to preserve the freshness.

(The one holding in the hand, contains food addictive)

What you should buy is this sort of packaging.  You thought why they vacuum sealed it/?  But these one is fresh and without any food additive.

I don’t know what are those.

We are going to eat you!

We need these tools to eat it.

It looks hard on the shell.  But actually, it is soft.

After few minutes later, this crab has no legs.  All eaten by us.

So, let’s open the shell and sea side.

Not everything we can eat.  We threw away the gills.

IMG 4951

Let’s cut it open and distribute out.

The crab, not sure how to describe it, it is very good and delicious.

And we finished it all again.

Every one is happy and say good!
