Going to Kitchen Town


So today I checked out what my friend Ed calls "Kitchen Town". I think it's actually called Kappamachi. It's a area about 4 or 5 city blocks long of nothing but restaurant supply stores.

I'm not talk about food although there were several food stores there. I'm talking about everything needed to run a restaurant. If it's not there then you probably don't need it.

Here's a short list of some of the stuff I saw.

That's a very short list. Most of the stores carried only a few things, for example 3 stores were only plastic food. Several stores were only plates, cups and bowls made of ceramics where as other stores were only cups, bowls and plates made of wood. The most specific store I saw was one store that only carried strainers in all shapes and sizes for things like straining ramen noodles or for pulling tempura out of the oil etc..

Next time I'm there I'll try to take some pictures.

does this need a name?
