Random Delights of Tsukiji
On Wednesday, when Tsukiji's market is actually closed, and there are fewer people, you can find quite a few 'mom&pop' shops still open. This particular one was just a random stall selling scallops, so there wasn't anything really special about it except for the old lady who was working tirelessly to feed hungry gaijin like myself tasty scallops - she wasn't all that nice either. This old lady was very fiesty. She was snapping and shouting at customers and pointing her finger. I thought she was cute, actually. She especially hated it when people were taking her picture. I told she was sexy and that her scallops were worth it all. In the end though, it was all worth it, for this delicious sea scallop. I had to wait 30 minutes! That's Tsukiji!
