Coinciding perfectly with the long weekend is Food EXPO Kyushu, a celebration of food from across Kyushu. Seventy shops, restaurants and drinking establishments have set up stalls in Tenjin Chuo Park, in front of the ACROS building, selling gourmet food, fine sake and plenty of other bits and pieces in between.
We went over to check out to what treats we try find on our lunch break, and took some pictures along the way. The sake really is fine, and the charcoal-infused chocolate ice cream (we’re calling it “charcoalate”) is to die for.
Make sure to catch it before it finishes on Monday (Oct. 10) and let us know in the comments what we should look out for over the rest of the weekend. More details on this event and others here.
