山形もち処 餅の星野屋

Natto mochi (5 pieces, 480 yen) is made of freshly pounded mochi and domestically produced natto. As the owner Teruhiko Hoshino says, it is served to provide a prime example of traditional home cooking loved since long ago in Yamagata. Smooth mochi made from locally-grown Yamagata rice matches very well with the large soy beans used in the natto. The relish of grated radish cleans your palate. Although it is a simple dish, you can feel the excellent marriage of the two tastes the moment you eat.

It is an old shop established in 1933, and now it provides a stylish space after a renovation. You can enjoy mochi in a cozy space with high ceilings.
