Roken Manto Takeuchi, Okaido Branch

Japanese Confectionery
This confectionery opened in 1931 in Okaido, Matsuyama City, Ehime Prefecture, and its most well-known product is its famous “Roken manto” sweet buns. They were originally created at the Institute for Labor Science in Kurashiki City, Okayama Prefecture by adapting sweet buns from China to Japanese tastes, and in Matsuyama during the early Showa period, they were produced and sold to raise money for night school expenses as well as for meals. Their steamed bread has garnered many fans over the years for its simple taste, soft texture, and mild sweetness created using the same yeast that was being used when the store opened. There are many other varieties as well, such as black soybean, pinto bean, mugwort, strained bean paste, and more, and frozen sets are sold as well. Note: Currently closed.

    愛媛県、松山にある労研饅頭たけうち 大街道支店です。松山を代表する商店街、大街道にあります。素朴な蒸しパンのお店で、種類も沢山あります。いくつか購入しましたが、中に赤飯が入った蒸しパンが珍しくオススメ。店主は親切で、その場で温めてくれました。夜遅くまで空いており、各種電子マネー使えました。

    愛媛県、松山市、大街道にある労研饅頭たけうち 大街道支店です。ガイドブック載ってたので伺いました。色々な味があり迷いましたが、つぶ餡の入ったよもぎと餡なしのバター味をチョイス。素朴な味の蒸しパンです。普段食べるのに良いなという感じでした。
