Serving diverse dishes with affordable prices, Japanese push carts — commonly known as yatai stalls — are definitely the soul of any Japanese food festival. Experience the liveliness of a Japanese festival through the ISETAN Momiji Matsuri Fair at NEX where you can feast on authentic delicacies that celebrate the rich flavours of autumn.

Indulge in classic Japanese comfort foods

If you are looking for an edible piece of art, Compton‘s Hiroshima Okonomiyaki is a culinary masterpiece that showcases a unique style of cooking. Layers of carefully piled ingredients, without mixing, create a visually stunning dish. The dough, made with a special flour/water ratio, ensures a fluffy texture. Seasoned simply with salt, pepper, fishmeal, and dashi broth, the noodles add depth and balance to the overall finish, making this okonomiyaki a true delight for the senses.

Ramen takes the crown as one of the most popular Japanese specialities and there is no questioning why. The hearty, rich flavours of the Sapporo Ramen from Kamata Ramen is created from the rich, salty miso base. Magic happens when ladles of piping hot broth meet silky al dente noodles, creating an intoxicating allure in your first giant slurp.

Satiate Your Fried Chicken Cravings

There’s nothing quite like the taste of freshly fried chicken. If you’re craving for some, be sure to visit Higo Marunoya, a brand renowned for its Marunoya Salted Karaage, which is paired with a tasty original sauce created with Shio Koji. The salted chicken is deep-fried slowly at a low temperature to achieve the best taste and ultimate juiciness, so that the freshly fried taste can be savoured for a long time. Soybean oil is used to offer a light taste and keeps you craving for more without feeling heavy.

Taste the essence of the sea with seafood skewers
