Pit stop at the Hokkaido & Michinoku Fair

Elbow jousting in the rough seas of middle aged ladies (sometimes using kids as their shields) can be a tiring affair, so inevitably, one has to stop to refuel on some energy sources to keep on going. Here're some sushis (salmon with assorted roes and otoro) that we managed to grab at Isetan in the duration there (lunch/snack break) and I'm not sure if it's because of the ongoing fair, the offerings seemed a tad better than the usual. For one, there's otoro to be had. I would recommend to get them early in the day when they're closer to freshly made. The otoro sushis here are surprisingly pretty good and relatively inexpensive for fatty tuna belly. The strawberry and cream sandwich doesn't come from the fair, but I thought it was pretty good so you get to see them too. They're actually available almost all of the time I pass by at Sun Moulin and curiosity finally got to me. It's essentially a simple strawberry halves with cream between two slices of bread which I found quite tasty.

Stay tuned for my loots from the fair.

thru 5 Feb..but there's on permanent marion crepe booth@ imm.

think the franchise here is bought by the azabu sabo chain. if i'm not mistaken, they use azabo sabo gelato too in their cold crepes.

@ mama bok,
Those sandwiches are actually not overly sweet.

Thanks, I'm not likely to go IMM, but I'll try to drop by Taka to take a look at the booth.

Hi there,

It's located at the basement of Isetan Scotts. The place where Lido is.
