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.
It takes four squids for half cracker. This is how the squid looks like before turns into cracker. It’s marinated in flour.
A manual pressure pan that can turn squid into a very thin and crispy cracker.
After 10-15minutes of cooking, no sign of squid.
Very thin cracker.
Final result. Crispy and delicious.
The squid cracker shop can be found on the way to Big Buddha in Kamakura. It’s the most crowded shop along the way.
