Street Food: Squids Cracker in Kamakura

Kamakura Street Food
Squid is one of dishes we can’t live without in Japan. When it comes to street food, there’s always  grill squids with soya sauce. When we first saw squid cracker shop in Kamakura, we immediately wanted to try it. We could not find any squid cracker in Tokyo by far, so without a second thought we queued to get ones. Squid cracker costs ¥350. One must purchase the ticket and give it to the chef. Suica / passmo card cannot be used to buy the ticket.  It takes 10 – 15 min to prepare the cracker.
