Anbata wasabi is a bread made by sandwiching butter and red bean paste with wasabi in a round bread that is the size of a fist. It is a new gourmet food of Kawazu that is known to those in the know, devised by the "Kawazu Wasabi de Crying Corps" centered on business and industry members. They are sold at tourist centers and souvenir shops, and the price is 250 yen (tax included) per piece.
The En-eating editorial department also gave me a souvenir, so we decided to try it together! The moment you open the package, you will feel a spicy scent like a sandwich with mustard.
When you bite into it, the first thing that goes through your nose is the scent of wasabi. Next, the mild sweetness of the bean paste is felt on the tongue, and then the spiciness of wasabi follows. The smooth and rich butter acts as a binder, and the tastes of wasabi and red bean paste do not separate and blend perfectly! This is a newly discovered taste !!
Anbata wasabi is not so spicy that it makes you cry when you eat it all at once like wasabi bowl. The butter makes the spiciness mild, and the anko and wasabi complement each other to create an exquisite "sweet and spicy" taste. I wondered if it was a product that ran into a story (excuse me), but I took off my hat from my eyes to the high degree of perfection of the scales!
"Anbata Wasako" has a mysterious standing position that sets it apart from sweet bread and side dish bread. The sweet and spicy tsundere taste is a habit, and it's a big hit personally! If you see it when you go to Kawazu, please give it a try.
