In you like Sea food go, look and eat. I went early morning. But this is not necessary. The market is open all day. Relax watch, eat and enjoy.

It was totally not what I expected. I wouldn’t really call the place a market as it’s more of a seafood food court. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Pros: You can find all kinds of seafood here. There is a sashimi, pre-cooked and cook-to-order corner in each shop. Seatings...More
