The ‘Anmitsu’ can be found in the bottom bento as a tumble of diced fruits, tapioca pearls, mashed azuki (red beans) and chewy Shiratama rice dumplings coated in kinako (roasted soy bean) powder. Alongside is the flavour-complementing nutty white sesame ice-cream.
The cloudy sample of sake in the top bento is easy to drink while the skewered cubes of ‘Sake Sponge Bites’ seem to have no discernible sake flavour at all. The green tea tiramisu is a hit with most of us, except I find it a little too creamy for my liking. The handmade chocolate is a whole lot of textural fun with its layers of dark and milk chocolate praline with caramel ganache, but it’s the hidden pop rocks which bring a child-like grin to our faces as they keep popping even after the last of the chocolate has been eaten.
We had dinner here prior to ordering their Sugar Hit, but please be aware that if you are going to Azuma Kushiyaki for their Sugar Hit alone that there is a minimum spend of $15 per person. There are only a couple of evenings remaining before Sugar Hits end for another year, so get moving!
