Try Kochi’s soul food at Hirome Market

Hirome Market is nicknamed “Kochi’s kitchen” for a reason

Home to over 40 food stalls, this is where Kochiites and visitors come to enjoy some of the best local cuisine. No matter what time of day, you will find plenty of friendly folks chatting, laughing, eating, and sipping some of Kochi’s smooth dry sake

While discovering local delicacies is part of the fun, you definitely have to try katsuo no tataki (seared bonito)! You can witness the traditional cooking method where the whole filet is seared over an impressive pile of burning rice straw, which draws out the rich flavor and adds an incredible smokiness
