New Sweet Shop Find

plum-shaped daifuku

Out for a walk I found a new little place, Seichian・清致庵. I got something a little out of season (more common in the spring) but I don’t see it so often so I couldn’t resist.

It’s a 白あん梅大福・shiro-an ume daifuku, or white bean paste. The plum is a small, unripe and preserved in sweet plum vinegar before being wrapped up into a mochi. It was super delicate and soft. A good find if I’m in the area again.
