It's made by rice (mochi) coated by red bean paste. It's rather sweet hence goes very well with green tea (mocha).
This is 2 sets - one with sweet red bean soup and mochi.
Must try it when you visit Ise.
The shop is located in the main shopping street close to the Ise inner shrine. You won't miss the shop, cos there is always long queue outside the shop!
Toba is famous for it's pearl industry as well as for it's seafood. We ordered to grilled oysters. They are rather big and very juicy and sweet. Love it! It's so simple and straight forward.
I had oysters cooked with miso source. Have never had so many oysters once in my life. I can't remember the price now but it's not expensive at all from the quality of the food! yum!

ps. This restaurant close at 19:00.
It has 60 years history and probably the best fried pork I have ever had. The fried pork is so crispy and top with Nagoya special dark colour and sweet miso source. It tastes even better with loads cabbage salad topping!
It's a must when you visit Nagoya.

Their menu is simple and straight forward - only 4 choices. We all went for the famous eel tempura with rice. It's soooooo nice! And the price is rather fair - 1100 yen (6 pounds)!The only thing is you have to queue for this restaurant, however the queue moves quite fast! Also, you smells like tempura after coming out from the restaurant! Despite all these, I love this restaurant and will definetly pay my visit again!
Opening time: 11am-2pm, 5pm-9pm

This shop is so small and cute. Love it!!!
Stayed at this traditional Japanese hotel (Ryokan) for 2 nights. They serve breakfast and dinner in our room, v cool.
The first night we were served Kaizeki style dinner.
The second night, we were served sukiyaki....ymmm.....
The process of cooking it.....
And the breakfast..... t's such a lovely Ryokan. Definitly recommend this ryokan if you happen to travel to Kyoto.
The pork stewered with Nagoya miso sauce.
And chicken stewered.Weblink: taste-net.com
The set is 1380 Yen and it's soooo nice!
A closer shot.....The whole set was only 2500 Yen (12.5 pounds) and it was really really nice!
Will definitly go back to Takayama to have Hida beef again!
We didn't go for set menu cos none of like what we see on the set menu (rather boring). I had the roast duck, quite nice. But I wouldn't say it's the best roast duck I have ever had.
The waiter kind of pushing us for the set menu, which was quite annoying. Also righ after we decided our orders, he even pushed us to order dessert. According to him, there is one dessert (Apple tart) on the menu which takes 1 hour to prepare. So I thought I had to order it, to see how amazing it is!!!!
And here you are.......it looks a bit like...hmmm.....
We also ordered some cheese from the trolly. The collection is rather good, esp. the local cheese.
