Kobe is the capital of Hyogo prefecture and a busy port town. With these various trading activity, Kobe became blending pot for series of culture and various structure style from many regions.
I started with Tachiba restaurant which I have discovered without doing any preparation and research before traveling to Kobe. The place serves Akashi yaki which substitute Takoyaki flour by egg.
The result of changing the ingredient? Well, it’s amazing! Egg gave a fluffy texture and dipping Akashi Yaki into the light clear soup make it one of most appetizing meal I have ever came across. Gotta love it when chef flip the pan and Akashi yaki just came out easily and ready to be serve.
Then I went for a dessert café (La sensation) and got a custard cake with small dot of sour sauce to provide more dimension in color. Most satisfying cake indeed.
After having a nice snack and dessert, I stumbled upon Motoko market which located under the train track in Kobe. Series of classic and interesting shop inside for exploring.
That’s all for my review. In my opinion, Kobe is one of the tourist attraction city which could balance between city charm and modern world development. See you next later and hope you have a wonderful day 😊
