Émile tried authentic wagyu (Japanese beef) skewers, and moved on to Nakasu Kawabata, a neighborhood brimming with historical significance. He enjoyed various foods at the local yatai (food stall) called Kenzo. He ate a full Fukuoka-style feast featuring motsunabe (hot pot of beef or pork intestines), yaki ramen (fried noodles), and yakitori (grilled chicken skewers).
