The unique food culture at Kuromon Market has been drawing in food lovers for close to 200 years, and it’s easy to see why. The covered market is staffed by lively vendors who have mastered their dishes of choice, in most cases, their dishes have been carefully handed down for generations. English menus? Any menus at all? Even if you can read Japanese, some of the hand-written calligraphy menus here can be difficult to decipher.
