Chinatown is one of the famous tourist spots in Yokohama, Japan. I've learnt few things from just browsing around the area.
1. Chinese snacks were well-known for its "Bao" and "Shao Mai". But their Bao are gigantic one. Some "bao" can cost up to 500 yen (S$6.40) each and "shao mai" can cost up to 200 yen (S$2.60) each. Crazy!!!
2. Most Chinese food sold in the restaurant are overpriced. Prices of normal dishes have an average of 2,000 yen (S$26) per plate. 4 pcs of Xiao Long Bao costs 1,200 yen (S$15). 8 dishes set menu costs 6,300 yen (S$80) per person. La mian costs about 800 yen (S$10) and above.
3. They make "Panda" to symbolize Chinese Icon. Lots of souvenirs were designed w/ panda. Even the "Bao" also decorated as Panda face.
Enjoy the pictures...
