After moving around the different food halls we decided to buy lunch and head to one of the rooftops. As you can imagine, there was wide choice.
I love eel. This eel is cooked right in front of you, in a small kitchen over a charcoal stove.
Pricey but delicious.
I also decided on sushi. I find the Japanese tradition of asking you to put your money or credit card in a tray (instead of handing it to the clerk) interesting.
The tempura was a disappointing choice. I think that it needs to come straight out of the deep fryer and onto your plate, when it is cold it isn’t as good.
As you would expect, the rooftop dining area is a nice open space with a shrine.
A serene escape in the heart of the city. As I understand it, most of the large departments stores have this open area .. just go to the top.
We then popped downstairs to buy a few things for home, starting with honey. More honey types than you can imagine.
A few sweets.
And a fantastic rice drink in a host of flavours which is supposed to be good for digestion. I bought a few, with the ginger being my favourite.
And I finally figured out what a $20 bag of grapes is for – a hostess/host gift when you go to someone’s house.
