If there's one berry capable of trascending you to Berry Heaven, its got to be japanese strawberries. Hakata-bred. 110% plump, sweet and voluptuously juicy, almost juice-squirtingly amazing.
Look here's what i bought from a friendly old man at Yanagawa, Kyushu...
The Hakata 博多 berries on the right cost me ¥350 a punnet, which works out to about S$5.60. One full punnet of bliss.
And guess what i saw at Isetan Shaw, Orchard Road?
Now i regret not buying down the whole stall from the old man.
