There is an interesting place next to the foot bath building.
It is an Awara Onsen food stall village which is called Yukemuri Yokocho (cloud of stream side street).
Now 8 shops are open there.
Those are restaurants specializing in tebasaki (chicken wings), yakitori (chicken pieces grilled on a skewer), kushiage(fried vegetables and meat on a skewer), okonomiyaki (savoury pancakes with various ingredients), gyoza, ramen, and French.
They have their own specialities.
Each shop has only about 10 seats, so it is easy to become friendly with shopkeepers and between customers.
It was difficult to chose the shop to enter, but we went to the tebasaki and kushiage ones.
We had an enjoyable time with food and talking.
The place is in front of Awarayunomachi station of the Echizen train in Fukui.
I forgot to take pictures of the food.
