Recently, not only restaurant owners and professional chefs, but also the general public and tourists come visit the street, making it a popular tourist destination.

Food Sample making

Food samples, also called “food models”or “cooking samples,” are models of dishes displayed at the facade of or inside restaurants. Each of them serves as a menu by visually describing the product in detail and presenting the name and price next to them. They can tell the guests what kind of dishes, quantities, and ingredients being contained by just looking at it, so in recent years, increasing number of food samples has been demanded at restaurants catering to both national and international visitors.
