Washoku 4 | A Japanese street fair

Update: The fair was a lot of fun. We even got to dress up and look Japanese.

I must admit I’m not a fan of Chinese food. I have been the cause of grief for family and friends, simply because I refuse to go out with them to Chinese restaurants or order in. Of course, one against a majority hasn’t always been successful.

Although Thai food has come to be popular in recent times, Japanese food is still relatively new in Mumbai.

A hurdle most of us foodies face is the availability of vegetarian food. It seems like foreign cuisines are primarily non-vegetarian with vegetarian substitutes thrown in.

This month, though, I am looking forward to Washoku 4.

Washoku 4 promises to be a Japanese street fair. IHM Mumbai and Maido India wish to bring Japan closer to Mumbai. During the festival, there are expected to be various Japanese cultural aspects like the tea ceremony, Origami, Japanese fortune-teller and Ikebana displays. One can relish Sushi, Tempura, Noodles and much more.

I’m looking forward to it. I’ve never really gone out to eat Japanese food before and this experience seems lighter on the pocket (approx. Rs 500) as compared to (an approx. Rs 2000) meal elsewhere.
