The best ground soybeans in Kyoto! Made by you!
We decided to have a set consisting of miso soup, kuromame in a sweet syrup, similar to the traditional Osechi style, fresh tofu and a delicious kuromame rice dish, that perfectly paired steamed rice with the slightly salty, umami taste of the soybeans. Simple, but oh so delicious!
The highlight of our dish, however, were the mitarashi dango that came with roasted soybeans that we ground ourselves. You might wonder now "What, I have to prepare part of the dish myself?!". Sort of, but trust me, this is where the fun comes in!
And then it's time to dust your fresh mitarashi dango with your hard earned soybean powder! Trust me, having ground it yourself, this soybean powder will taste even better!
If you love the sweet smell of freshly ground black soy beans, and love some unique sweets with an additional fun factor, then don't wait any longer and make sure you visit Kuromame Saan Kitao!
