Promoting the appeal of sweet potato sweets that are more than just sweet [Imoya Tsunekichi]

February 15, 2023 open

Imoya Tsunekichi moved from Takatsuki, Osaka, where it had been a café-style restaurant, to Gion, and started its second chapter. In response to the many tourists in the area, the restaurant has evolved into a casual stopover spot where customers can enjoy a quick bite inside or take out.

There is a wide variety of sweet potato varieties, from simple ones such as jokichi sweet potatoes that are slowly baked and then deep-fried, and takaimo with secret golden honey, to more creative ones such as dumplings and brûlée with sweet potato cream squeezed over them. The sweetness of the same sweet potato differs so much depending on how it is cooked! You will be able to rediscover the high potential of sweet potatoes.
