    四万温泉の帰りに立ち寄りました、地元食材を求めて午前中訪問したのですが、期待した生鮮野菜は有りませんでした。店としては地方のスーパーと言う感じで、お土産を買い求めに立ち寄るほうが適切なのかもしれません。

    上州産のお土産をいろいろ買おうと思い立ち寄ったのですが、期待が大き過ぎたのか、うどんやお饅頭はあまり色々なお店のものは置いておらず、メーカーの選択肢は少ないという印象でした。 また、肉味噌は伊勢の会社が製造、高菜漬けは九州の会社が製造し、販売は群馬県の会社 というような製品が有りますので、群馬産のお土産が欲しいのであれば、パッケージをよく確認した方が良いです。

    Gunma Pref. Isesakishi Kamihasuchou 657
    "This shop which sells Joshu's specialty Yaki Manju operates from an old Japanese-style house associated with Kunisada Chuji. Kunisada Chuji was a rebel of the late Edo Period, a great sinner according to the ruling class, and a Robin Hood-type hero according to the locals. The shop's name comes from the fact that it was built from materials recovered from the assumed last hiding place of Chuji. The shop recommends eating its fluffy Manju, flavored with plenty of sweet miso sauce, at the fireplace inside the shop while they're still hot. The Saka-manju coated with sauce and baked to make ""Baked Manju with red bean paste filling"" are also popular."

    Gunma Pref. Maebashishi Heiwamachi 2-5-20
    Ever since its founding in 1857, this shop has focused on making manju buns. After adding malted rice to wheat and letting it ferment, a secret sauce containing red miso, granulated sugar, and other ingredients is added repeatedly before the bun is baked. The shop closes when it sells out, so it’s best to go early. The charming building is modeled after a private Joshu home like the one the original owner grew up in. It is about 10 minutes by car from JR Maebashi Station.

    群馬県の名物だと知って食べてみることにしました。 こちらは遊園地るなぱあくのすぐそば。 なかなか渋い店構えです。 1串に4つの大きな焼き饅頭。 多いとは思いましたが3串買いました。 餡子などの中身は入っておらず、パンのような焼き饅頭にみたらしが塗ってありました。 これは一個でお腹にたまります。 案の定余ってしまいました。 翌日に食べるのはオススメしません。 固くてベタベタです。

The bakery opens at 7:00 am and offers many kinds of bread such as sweet buns, savory bread, and bread for meals. The homemade curry in the in the ever-popular curry bread is delicious. To keep the umami flavor, the beef, onion, and carrot are grilled and then boiled, and then carefully flavored with two types of curry roux and a secret ingredient. Baked confectionaries such as Croquembouche and other sweets are also recommended. There is a free coffee service offered to patrons as well as a place to eat on site.

    学校が近いせいなのか、時間帯によっては駐車場も一杯になったり、狭い店内にはほかの客のことを考えもせず、話し込んでいる地元のお母さんたちなどがいたりで、最近は滅多に行くことがなくなりました。パンは種類多くて味はまあまあ、ちょっと値段が高いかな。
