Japanese Street Food – GIANT MUSSELS – We found some of the BEST street food in Japan in Nishiki Market in Kyoto, Japan! Join us today for a HUGE street food tour of some of the most delicious Japanese street food in Kyoto!
Today, I’m (Trevor James, The Food Ranger) taking you on a huge street food tour of Kyoto, trying a bunch of delicious street food and seafood of both the Nishiki market in Kyoto, Japan, and also the streets of Kyoto to taste a bunch of different delicacies.
In Kyoto, Japan, there is a bunch of different street foods to try. It’s quite a small town but there is a lot to eat, and much much more than regular Japanese sushi and sashimi!
First, we are going to the Nishiki market, where we try some delicious seafood like Giant Mussels, amazing Tuna and Salmon sashimi, tasty raw uni sea urchin and oysters, takoyaki octopus and also some okonomiyaki Japanese pancakes. You could spend a lifetime trying all the different snacks and ramen restaurants around this street food market. We wanted to try a little more Japanese cuisine outside of the market, so we kept Foodrangin’ for more and found the most delicious fried tempura of your dreams. It was perfectly crispy and yet succulent and soft too. The shrimp was springy and fresh, and the eel was so flavourful!
After the delicious Japanese tempura, we went for some delicious Sushi. It was one of those famous conveyor belt sushi restaurants, and to be honest, it was not the most amazing sushi in Japan, but it was still a fun experience. We tried salmon nigiri, raw tuna nigiri, uni sea urchin, otoro fatty tuna belly, and more, like raw squid nigiri and a few other cuts of fish as well.
To finish off the day, we went for an amazing bowl of Japanese ramen. It was shoyu ramen made from pork bones and a rich soy sauce. There was nice and fatty slices of pork and tons of delicious and springy noodles along with fried gyoza Japanese dumplings as well!
It was some of the BEST Japanese street food in Japan! Everything we tried was delicious!
