5 Kuromon Ichiba Market Eats To Try

One reason why I love the Japanese language is because I can guess the meaning by looking at the Chinese words used. The 4 black words in the banner above means “black door market”.  It refers to Kuromon Ichiba Market in Osaka. Nicknamed, “The Kitchen of Osaka”, this market specialises in fresh and good quality meat, vegetables, fruits and many other ingredients from all over Japan and abroad.

After reading several blogs and reviews, I’ve narrowed down to 5 eats to try at the market although I’m pretty sure I won’t keep to just 5.  Take a look at this eBook and you’ll know why.
