Gather lords of people to see Mochi Pounding show must be highlight
Mochi (rice cake) pounding is created with a wooden millet in a mortar everyday to have it for visitors freshly in bustle market, Nishiki-Ichiba. Food additive is not in it at all shows the true worth of Nishiki-Mochituki-ya. It is believed that glutinous rice is used in here is the best yummy in Kansai area. Healthy-oriented must be relived. Some young Japanese people don’t eat Charcoal-grilled mochi the lately it is because too much trouble to ready for it, although we would prefer it. So it is chance to have for us as well. Zenzai (melted red beans soup) with mochi and original are trial food during you are in Kyoto. Made by Super mochi creative expert would not let you down!
Yakimochi B
Yakimochi B / ¥810
It is valuable set that 5 flavored mochi you can enjoy little by little. Cheese, peanuts butter, Pollack roe, plum with sliced bonito and seaweed. Thick paste peanuts butter would be familiar with you. On the other hands, plum one is a bit sour, but bonito is to be soft. You would get so many like on your Facebook if you up this photo.
Zoni Set
Zoni Set / ¥950
Zoni is eaten on the New year holiday in Japan generally. Making with sweet white miso is features in Kyoto. Mochi is chewy. So when the mochi gets smaller , just swallow it. A bit salty rice boiled with red beans is the meal which we have celebrate things. It is available from autumn till winter.
Powdered green tea Zenzai

Powdered green tea Zenzai / ¥950
We believe that Zenzai is red beans melt soup but, they have unique idea that pouring hot green tea instead. Light taste matcha is far better having with red beans. It is a great to have salty dried kelp to take away the aftertaste. Recommended eating it if you are a bit hungry before dinner.
