Toadstool-shaped Lato

The toadstool-shaped lato (seaweed) in Cateel tastes even better than the grape-like lato.

Ikura at Nishiki Market


Salmon roe locally known as ikura are those orange spheres and usually sold like this – without its sac. Tastes quite similar to lato in the Philippines with its burst of subtle saltiness that initially I thought it’s a kind of seaweed.


Nishiki market where I took snapshot of the ikura. Pretty crowded as this was New Year’s rush
