From Akita With Love

Bring back fond memories of Akita Prefecture with this assortment of treats!

 

Inaniwa Udonweb19_Inaniwa-Udon

What sets this Akita udon apart from its tubular counterpart is the noodle’s flat, thin shape. And true to the pride of Akita’s harvest, this noodle is made from domestic-grown wheat. It is hand-pulled and dried, giving you a silky and chewy texture. In addition, sea brine is incorporated for a savoury hit.

Iburigakko

Eat like the locals with a serving of scrumptious Iburigakko. Literally translated as “smoked pickles”, this pickled daikon radish is sold in a vacuum-sealed bag. It is sliced and normally enjoyed as an appetiser. Its smoky flavour complements a hearty bowl of Akitatomachi rice—try it!
