My Recent night market experiences – Tokyo Style – which is within a famous shopping mall in Kuala Lumpur.
Tokyo Street – a unique shopping district based on Japanese traditional elements and modern facets of Japan’s dynamic culture and ambiance, which are similar to Ginza and Shibuya’s night markets. Located inside the Pavilion Mall (yes, it’s located at Level 6…inside a shopping mall), it is easily reachable by major public transportation like the Monorail and taxi. On my visit, I was armed with a Tokyo Street Tea Time passport voucher (in the form of a fan) that entitled me for an exclusive discount at the Tokyo Street Food and Beverage Outlet.
I slowly took my time to explore some of the different outlets located there ranging from “Mochi Sweet” that specializes in Japanese glutinous flour rice cakes, Fresh “Shimino” Japanese Crepes, Hokkaido “Ramen Santouka” for classic delicious ramen, “En Ginza Cafe” an authentic Japanese food cafe with a fusion of French cuisine, well known for its delicious freshly-baked bread and excellent aromatic coffee (I prefer the hot latte with Hello Kitty animated coffee art), and “Suki-Ya”, House of Pot for all-you-can-eat sukiyaki and shabu-shabu!
But the most important part of Tokyo Street is “TheClickShop” which sells Lomo cameras and accessories alongside the Food and Beverage retail outlet. Night market shopping will never be the same again for me thanks to Tokyo Street!
