Higiri Chaya, Higiri-yaki Sawai Honpo (ひぎりやき澤井本舗・ひぎり茶屋)
This café serves sweet known as ohigiri-san by the locals. Batter is poured into a round metal mold then filled with red bean jam and baked – this sweet is usually called obanyaki in Japanese. The name comes from the fact that the sweets are sold beside the Higiri Jizo statue in Matsuyama; it is more well-known than obanyaki in Matsuyama. There are various flavors including the classic red bean jam, white bean jam flavored with yuzu and cream as well as limited availability seasonal flavors. The café also has a mail-order service which is popular for its crème brûlée with custard cream and caramel.
