    From the people who brought us Japanese labels online, Rakuten is now holding Singapore’s first Rakuten Japan Gourmet Festival.

    The food bazaar will take place between 25 November and 4 December at Basement 1 of WAttention Plaza, Jurong Point.

    The fair will have 100 types of premium seafood, confectionaries and, of course, our much loved Japanese desserts and sweets.

    We hear the festival is hugely popular in Japan.  Die-hard Japanese food lovers out there — you probably wouldn’t want to miss this.

    Here are some items we can’t wait to try:

    Puffer fish
    Unlike its moniker, Puffer fish is actually quite friendly and approachable. Unless you’re out to eat her lunch – or dessert — to be precise – then be prepared that she might raise her spikes at you. Good food is just one of her many likes, Puffer Fish also loves visiting new and familiar places around the world because she believes there are always new discoveries and adventures to be had. She considers herself one lucky ass to be able to put her editorial background to good use by sharing her travel and gastronomical adventures online via Gratenews. She hopes readers get as much enjoyment and insights from her pieces as she has writing them.
