Warashibe.Dear: The ultimate lemon juice that is ripe for wintering(Center of the photo)
In the field of Iwagijima, a remote island in the Seto Inland Sea, which boasts a history of more than 40 years as a production area without convenience stores or traffic lights, we challenged to make a baton touch on the future field as “food culture”. “Overwinter ripe lemon” delivers the deliciousness of lemons that you want to keep in the future.
It is a product that is fully packed with the four ingredients that make up the taste of lemon: (1) acidity, (2) umami, (3) aroma, and (4) bitterness.
■ Eating out department
Ginza Sugaya: Toro mackerel grilled salt set meal(Right photo)
It is a set meal using high-quality oily mackerel from Yamaguchi prefecture, which is so large that it sticks out of the plate.
In addition to the exquisite baking that the outer skin is crispy and the body is plump and juicy, it is a gem that is also useful for the small work of carefully pulling out the bones by hand without leaving any bones.
It is also a very nice point to be able to enjoy this quality at a price of 1,000 yen while setting up a shop in the center of Ginza, Tokyo.
