Enjoying retro and brilliant Kyoto fine foods made from traditional food with Kyoto ingredients ”Kyo Namafu Store -MANAFU-”
See, eat and fully enjoy Kyoto
When visiting Kyoto's basic sightseeing spot Heian-jingu we definitely want you to stop by this shop.
Its a popular store and its cute Namafu Dengaku (wheat gluten grilled coated with miso paste) which look like icecream and candy are drawing a lot of attention.
Next to the eye-catching and declicate color usage typical for Kyoto, its chewy food texture is the biggest appeal of Kyoto Namafu.
Frankly ”wheat gluten” has a high utility value
As the wheat gluten is mainly a plant protein not containing any fat it is a low calorie high protein ingredient friendly to the body.
It is also low cholesterol and contains various nutrients like natrium, kalium, calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus and zinc.
In recent years it has drawn attention not only in Japan but also overseas for being rich in minerals and having a high nutritional value.
Standard souvenirs and novelties
The Namafu bar has been invented with the idea of being able to enjoy Kyoto's fine foods while doing sightseeing.
Kyoto's typical thoughtfulness and friendlyness is existent in the flavour and conception and can it be regarded as an ingenuity unique to the city of tradition and innovation Kyoto, .
We also recommend the delicious and aromatic Awa wheat gluten and Yomogi wheat gluten ”Isobe Yaki” glazed with soy sauce.
