SPRING HOKKAIDO FOOD FAIR 2012 AT TAKASHIMAYA – EXPERIENCE THE FRESHNESS OF WHAT HOKKAIDO SPRING CAN BRING

By

Hi there

I was at the Hokkaido Spring Food Fair at Takashimaya on the last day to see whether there is something interesting to look out for. May be you can use this as a blueprint of your next visit to the Hokkaido Fair. πŸ™‚

Hokkaido Spring Food Fair at Takashimaya

It is actually a little similar to the Winter Hokkaido Fair at Takashimaya as well, they have their ever crowded Croquette store, where they have the $15 for 3 large crab, scallop croquette, and also the mini salmon cheese croquette ($9/6pcs) and salmon croquette ($5.50/pc).

Marudai Suisan were selling King Crab at $198/pc (Approx 1.5kg) & King Crab Leg at $13/100g & Hanasaki Crab was at $83/pc. I was chatting with the staff there, and they were selling me that the largest ones were already sold on the first day! Wow there is really a market here in Singapore huh.

Scallops which is larger than the palm size of my 3 year old toddler were also selling for $63 per pack, but as it is frozen, you can always savor it slowly and store it in deep freeze. πŸ™‚ $63/box (approx 500g)

If you want something more savoury, I recommend the grilled shishamo, $14/100g and oh so tasty! great for porridge or just on some plain white rice. πŸ™‚

As in all fair, there are also a main stay which is marinated and preserved seafood. Because is Spring Hokkaido Food Fair, the flavour is very much different from the Winter Fair, my family sampled a few, and my husband like the Ika Shiokara (marinated squid innards)Β the most.

  • Kazunoko (Herring Roe) – $11/100g
  • Ika Shiokara – $9/100g
  • Ika Sashi Matsumae – $9/100g
  • Cod Roe – $17/100g
  • Marinated Ikura in Soya Sauce – $22/100g

What was different is that instead of just grilled meats and squid skewers, they also have freshly grilled Hokkaido Corn too!

I saw a few people got the grilled corn which is at $7/pc, although is steep, but the corn is really big and you probably be quite filled up after finished it. Freshly grilled with some burnt bits, the aroma is really mouthwatering!

Other Grilled Scallop and Grilled Squid is also at $7/stick.
