Baked Sweet Potatoes from all over the country gather at “Shinagawa Baked Sweet Potato Terrace 2023”
“Shinagawa Yakiimo Terrace” is the “original” yakiimo event that is said to have sparked the yakiimo boom. More than 100 types of baked sweet potatoes and more than 30 types of sweet potatoes have been sold at the event so far, and there are many rare varieties that were procured only for “Shinagawa Yakiimo Terrace”.
“Shinagawa Yakiimo Terrace” where you can fully enjoy the charm of such baked sweet potatoes will be held for the first time in three years. This time, we have a lineup of many types, such as the sweet and fruity “Ayakomachi” and the “Tomitsu Kintoki”, which has a good balance of warmth and moisture. In addition to the old-fashioned stone-grilled sweet potatoes, there are various types of baked sweet potatoes that are cooked in various ways, such as slow-cooking them in pots and aging them in a stone storehouse.
Introducing new baked sweet potatoes
In addition, a new kind of roasted sweet potato will be unveiled for the first time. “Kuri Kaguya” from the baked sweet potato specialty store Imoyasu is an “evolutionary” steamy baked potato that has a fluffy texture and a chewy texture, just like the name “chestnut” suggests. You can enjoy a new variety that you can enjoy the taste of a new sensation as soon as possible.
Sweet potato sweets and food made by a baked potato shop
In addition, potato sweets and potato foods made by the baked potato shop will also appear at the venue. The “Imo-ben”, where you can enjoy sweet potato sweets and side dishes at once, includes three types of baked sweet potatoes, baked potato croquettes, baked potato chips, baked potato pudding, and purple potato pudding. It is truly a set of “Yakiimo On Parade”.
Another eye-catching item is the “Kuma Bottle Can,” which is a charming bear bottle filled with potato sweets that have a slightly bitter and mature taste. It is a dessert made with Montblanc-style whipped purple sweet potato scorched caramel, layered with diced baked sweet potato, roasted sweet potato paste using Beniharuka and Silk Sweet, and finished with homemade sweet potato syrup and caramel.
In addition, there is the “Black Truffle Mont Blanc Crepe,” which is a combination of “Silk Sweet” baked until it is melty and plenty of sweet potato Mont Blanc, and the “Black Truffle Mont Blanc Crepe,” which combines sweetness and aroma with the softness of raw caramel. There are also many baked sweet potato sweets that will be unveiled for the first time, such as “Mitsuboshi Mitsuboshi (Beniteshi Baked Potato Dried Potato)”.
