The unfortunate thing about Imobo Hiranoya

I used a tea shop-style seat.

Mito Komon (I wonder if it is transmitted to people born after 1990.)Once upon a time, a period drama called Mito Komon was broadcast on TV) seemed to take a break in the middle of the trip, and the atmosphere was good.

The cushion swelled, but because of my thin body shape, my butt hurt by the time I got home.

Imobo Hiranoya’s cuisine

I received a Hana-Gozen (3,000 yen tax excluded).

Tea and teaTea and Tea confectionery

 

The tea is similar to soba-boro and has a simple taste.

It is said that the tea confectionery is 700 yen (excluding tax) of “Imoboru” which is 100% Yamatoimo.

I bought it and went back.

The famous restaurant has a good soup stock, and it tastes relieved.

When I put it in my mouth, I got the incense of the ocean from the norimaki.

Because it was Tosa vinegar, the acidity was not strong, and it was a gentle taste.

The taste is moderately sweet.

It was taro on this day.

Depending on the season, the potato may be taro or shrimp potato.

Shrimp potatoes are from mid-October to mid-April
(Because it changes depending on the harvest, please check with the shop if you are worried about it.)

Gion tofu is covered with Yoshino Kudzu and has a mustard (yellow in the middle).

The side dish was Konjac, white miso, and spinach.

Comments from members of the Imobo Hiranoya Gastronomy Club

I ate it for the first time this time.

This is the rumored “Imobo”.Humhum.

If you have a chance, it is a dish that you want to eat what kind of food once.
