This Japanese Food Fair At NEX Has Shine Muscat Crepe, Wagyu Bao And More

17th October 2023

ISETAN Japanese food fair at NEX runs till 29 October 2023


Save your cash on a plane ticket to Japan and head to the ISETAN Momiji Matsuri Fair instead! The annual Japanese food fair is back at NEX from now till 29 October 2023, and features some of the country’s best autumnal snacks.

The food fair features a great variety of sweet and savoury items from 30 popular Japanese brands, including street food, fresh produce, and refreshing beers.


The Japan Style Shine Muscat Crepe ($10) by Fruits Cafe TOKIO is a must-try this year.


This comes with a soft crepe generously filled with fresh, milky cream, topped with uber-sweet Shine Muscat grapes flown in from Japan.


There’s also the Strawberry Shaved Ice ($12) from Itoshima Farm, which we previously featured in the Isetan Hanabi Matsuri fair.

This dessert comprises frozen Japanese strawberries, shaved in a cup, and finished with more fresh strawberries and sweet cream. It’ll make a pleasant treat if you need some cooling down from the afternoon heat.


If you’re craving something savoury, grab a Wagyu Bao ($6) or two ($10) from Niku Master. You get thinly sliced beef that’s tender and fatty, sandwiched between a steamed mantou.


Back to the sweets: another noteworthy snack to order is the Custard Danish Taiyaki ($5.50) from Arashiyama Le Mans. The baked treat is sweet and fluffy, packed with a creamy custard within.

No Japanese fair is complete without some warabi mochi, and you can find them at Bashodo. A box of one flavour goes at $12, while two costs $21. For the most bang for your buck, get the three boxes for $30!


Round up your time here with a bevvy or two; Jinro Highballs go for $8 a pop, with refreshing flavours such as Earl Grey Hard Lemon Tea and Lychee Hard Sparkling Cocktail.

Make sure you head to the Japanese food fair at NEX soon before the event is over!
