Continuing my Diwali weekend; after the mosque next stop was Crawford market. My impression was about the market was as wholesale market where people come to buy the stuff in kilos (tons may be). Hence it never excited me to visit. But couple of month ago I read article in Mumbai Mirror newspaper about few shops in this market I jumped with joy. Since that day I was just waiting for opportunity to go there.
In the article, they have given list of 5 shops out of which 3 caught my attention. 1. Japanese food 2. Exotic Fruits 3. Chopsticks shop. Believe me or not since the time I learned eating by chopsticks and since the time I started learning Japanese I was always on hunt for Japanese food shops and chopsticks shops but I could never find them anywhere. Hats off to the person who found such gems from the market of labyrinth.
Finally I could buy sushi rice, sea weeds, wasabi paste (recently ended up giving to one of my Japanese boss because we didn’t like the taste at all), buckwheat soba noodles and udon noodles at very cheaper rates. Also set of chopsticks at throw away prices. And some real exotic fruits like Rambutan(This become my favorite since colombo trip). Finally in one small stainless steal utensils shop I found beautiful Tiffin box.
Shopping ended there and we headed to our next stop.
