Momijiya Honpo (紅葉屋本舗)

4.5

Japanese Confectionery

This yokan (sweet bean jelly) specialty shop is in Kushimoto Town, Higashimuro County, Wakayama Prefecture. It opened in 1900 and operated over four generations before closing down once. The current owner used recipes he found in his grandfather’s Buddhist altar to recreate the original taste. The shop’s flagship product is the “hon-neri yokan,” of which only 200 can be produced daily. Each one is carefully made using Hokkaido azuki beans and agar from Osaka. The shop was recently awarded first place at the Monde Selection competition. The surface is crispy and has a unique dry texture.

Reviewed:2020/03/24 ★懐かしさを感じる上品な羊羹♪
もみじ屋さんの羊羹、マスコミにもよく取り上げられていたのでどんなものかな?
車で行ける範囲だったので直接伺いました!
サバンナの高橋さんによく似た物腰の柔らかい主人が色々な種類の羊羹を試食にと子供の頃 大好きだった宿木の和菓子によく似た感じで外皮の乾燥したパリパリは中身の美味しさを守っていそうな感じのする羊羹 今回は桜を買いました!
彦摩呂さんだったら『口の中はさくら満開や』と言うかな? 次は抹茶...
Reviewed:2020/02/08 多分ですけど世界一美味しい羊羹はここの羊羹だと思います!
表面のザクザク?パリパリ?あの食感がクセになります。
ここの羊羹は多分世界一美味しいと思う笑

味もかなり種類が多く、2-3種類買って良くお土産で持っていくのですが、かなり喜ばれます。
最近の和菓子ブームもあって若い子でも年配の方でも羊羹はいけるので、土産物店で買える様な加工食品より手作りのこの羊羹が絶対良いですよ。
Reviewed:2020/01/24 一気に完食
羊羹と言えばつるっとした食感とお考えでしょうがここの羊羹は昔ながらの製法糖分を表面に浮かび上がらせ少し乾燥させ気味で外はパリッと中はしっとり昔ながらの甘さ控えめの羊羹ひと口入れれば次が欲しくなる後を引く美味しさです。

櫛本の潮岬にある紅葉屋本舗さん製造現場にお邪魔すると試食させてくれます味見をしながら好きなフレーバーをチョイスできるのも嬉しいですね。

タイミングが合えばゲストルームにオーナーさ...

          Wakayama prefecture unites pilgrims, food lovers, and culture buffs in a tranquil corner of Japan at the base of the Kii Peninsula. The setting for many a Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail, Wakayama invites those in search of spirituality from one side of the prefecture to the other, from the 100-plus Buddhist temples of the sacred Mount Koya in the west to the inspiring temples of the Kumano Sanzan set among breathtaking nature in the east. Once the grueling hike is complete, make a beeline for Wakayama city to savor some of the country’s most delicious ramen noodles.
