Interesting street food. Kaya lang ang mahal naman nung iba. A single strawberry with syrup for a buck!

As a pescotarian, some of those they were selling appealed to me. However, you are right - way too expensive. Is it ok if I brought my own food to the fair? :D

Sorry for not visiting sooner. I was away for 3 days. Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come back tomorrow for a new series!

bertN- I know, some food were really expensive especially the strawberries w/ syrup; I didn't buy that :-) I bought the sweet corn although it's $3 hehehe

hensly- I like tako yaki and my kids too :-) Our first time to taste that was in Hawaii :-)

Jhay- yeah sweet corn was very sweet for $3 :-) and the fried banana I want to try and make that at home

burn- thanks for visiting my blog; there were lots of food to choose from, I wanted to try all :-) but some were expensive

Joy- ohh so you're pescotarian??!! I wish I could be like you :-) eating healthy food hehehe; yes you could bring food. A lot of Japanese brought their own food and had their picnic inside the park

That boiled thingie is called "Oden" yata, and it's served during winter. I love eating Oden tapos I drink the broth after. hehehe.
