5th July 2013.
Otaru, Hokkaido, Japan.
My first meal on the Hokkaido Passion tour with Chan Brothers was at Otaru Seaport (小樽シーポートマーケット) , a restaurant cum market specializes in seafood. The Chanko Nabe Ozeki or Seafood Nabe was average at best. The seafood which includes king crab and salmon were obviously frozen but the soup was passable. The furikake for the rice wasn’t good because it reeks of MSG. Our tour guide was honest about the food though. In the tour some of the other members purchased more ingredients such as fresh king crabs downstairs. You must be willing to fork out some 20000-40000 JPY for one though.
