Week Three, Wednesday 21st April to Wednesday 28th April
Beginning in May, the following will be on sale every month, from the 21st to the 28th of each month.
Full Moon Mochi Rice Ball/¥270 incl. tax
A red bean rice ball made with Full Moon Mochi, containing the springiness of each grain of rice, and made with cowpeas rather than adzuki. Cowpeas have a hard skin that does not break even when boiled. This made them popular in old Edo as a bean for special occasions, and therefore they were used in auspicious red bean rice. Even nowadays, Eitaro is very particular about using cowpeas in its red bean rice.
