Bizen City has been promoting Bizen curry and Bizen burger that are made by local veggies and meat (served onto Bizenyaki plates). Shurakukan restaurant is one of the places listed by the city where it serve these food. Since Bizen is known for Bizenyaki pottery, this place offers walk-in pottery lessons for visitors as well.

It came with soy sauce ice cream (with WASABI on the side!). Just like it has been proven at a local soy sauce store, soy sauce gives it slight bitterness just like a caramel. I wasn’t sure about wasabi but turns out, it didn’t taste spicy anyhow and instead created different impact which is hard to describe.
