Time to shift out from the clean but crammy APA Hotel in Higasi Nihombashi and have another environment of Tokyo city. We moved on to Asakusa area, which to my surprise was lively both day and night. It’s amazing how every area of Tokyo has its own feel and character.
We arrived at B Conte Hotel in the evening, and it is really awesome to know that the room comes with cooking and washing machine facilities. Seeing the cooking facilities all nicely available to us, tonight we shall cook and eat in!
It was really nice that the hotel provides bicycles for guests to cycle around this vibrant and lovely Asakusa. I hopped on one to paddle around before going to the grocery store.
Stumbled upon this small but cute looking karaage shop within the main souvenir centres. The smell of the freshly fried chicken chunks reached metres away..Guess even my feet sniffed it too and paddled their way here.
Crazy crunchy. Crazy tender. Crazy tasty. Screamssss! Too bad 100 g only gets you 3 chicken pieces, which cost each to be about 110 yen. Malaysian Ringgit *pulls hair*
One of the best fried chicken which I haven’t had in a long, long time.
The grocery store is located at the basement floor of a community mall here. And to my joyful surprise, the price of things were was easily 20-30% less than the big boys Taka and Isetan.
Since we had not crossed out beef from the to-eat list, we got a couple of beef slices and decided to call it a shabu-shabu DIY night.
Tossed in a couple of eggs, beef and vegs and threw in some local noodles..Whoa-lah! Beef udon!
The strawberries sold here were like friggin 20% lower in price compared to the one bought in Isetan! Apart from the price I could not really tell the difference in the packaging as they really did look similar.
Strawberries as big as your palm! But still super sweet in taste! If only we can have this everyday. Looks like I’ll be binging on Japanese strawberries in the remaining days of Tokyo holiday!
