    蕎麦打ちを教えてくれて、自分で打った蕎麦を食べれて、天麩羅を追加して、3人で4000円ちょっとってお母さん、それは安すぎますよ。家族経営でりんご園もやってて田舎の人だから優しくて気前が良いって言っても、これでは道楽レベルですよ。りんご狩りをして、7個でおまけで値引いて、1000円なのも、どれだけ優しいんですか?群馬県の県民性ですかね。自分で打った蕎麦も本当に美味しく食べました。これはみなかみを訪れ...

    あの「LUSH」がマスクやスクラブなどの原材料として選んだという福寿茶屋の「豊楽豆腐」に興味をひかれて伺いました。 豊来豆腐は木綿豆腐ですが絹豆腐のようななめらかさもあり絶妙でした。 豆腐と季節の野菜のキッシュも美味しかったです。 店内では3テーブルほどのスペースで甘味を楽しめるようです。 私はテイクアウトで豆乳ソフトをいただきました。
