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.

Checking out a comic called Haruka no Sue (Haruka’s Pottery) that is set in Bizen. It was also made into a live action film in 2019. Interesting…

Tada! A bizen burger and curry combo. Perhaps most customers get this stuff to try both at one time. Heh.

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.

I would like to introduce a local popular soy sauce maker in Bizen City this time.

It is located on a main street (just one block from the national freeway) in Kagato area of Bizen City. Ah yes, it is just several minutes from a local bakery that I have shared previously. Parking is available right across the store.

Different grades of say sauce are available.

You could have a seat as well.

Here comes the soy sauce soft ice cream. It actually tested good. Soy sauce gives it slight bitterness like bitter caramel sauce on pudding (if you know what I mean). I’m totally cool with it. Yum yum. The store also serves ponzu (citrus-based soy sauce) soft ice cream but perhaps I will save it for the next time.

Let’s call it a day.
