Tengu Manju

I visited here around 09:00, just opening time, on Saturday. Visitors already came to the shop one after another, and bought a little less than 20 manju (steamed buns). I bought 3 types of the Tengu Manju (JPY 95 per one) that the most popular Manju is named from the name of the shop and 1 Deep Fried Maju with Meat Filling (あげ肉まん * JPY 110 per one) at a cash register. The prices were JPY 395 in total. It is a very reasonable price. I carried the manju to a table, and prepared for free tea myself.

I ate a pink manju immediately. The manju was the size with around 6-7 cm in diameter, and I bited it, and cherry blossom flavored strained bean paste using adzuki bean produced in Tokachi appeared. I felt that it was very sweet. Then I ate a light brown manju. It tasted brown sugar flavor, and was very sweet, too. Then I ate a white manju. Judging from manju's appearance, I did not know what did taste like. I felt that it was a little salty, and it might be salt tasted strained bean paste. Colors of thin wrapping of dough might be related to each flavors. Those strained bean pastes were too sweet to me, but it might be suitable to a sweet tooth.

Finally I ate a deep fried manju with meat filling, and it was very tasty! It was salt flavor, and was just like piroshki. By the way, a soft serve ice cream seemed to be popular. A child ate a soft serve ice cream on that day. Eating the soft serve ice cream was a typical Hokkaido style in a winter. Thanks for the tasty manju!
