Local foods of Takayama.

On second day’s morning of our trip to Takayama, we got up early and got out of our hotel for breakfast.
It was still dark and cold, so we warmed ourselves in the Seven Eleven that have good appearance 🙂

After that we went to Kajibashi Shokudou.
Truthfully speaking, we wanted to go another restaurant, but unfortunately it was closed during winter season.

Because of heavy snowfall and it was early morning, there was no guests when we got to there. Though after that a man (maybe tourist from China) and regular customer visited there.

Of course, I ordered Komo dofu set (こもどうふ定食, 850 yen). Konbu seaweed, pickled daikon radish, boiled spinach dressed with sesami sauce (gomaae). So healthy breakfast 🙂

“Komo Dofu” is steamed tofu rolled with slatted wood. Firmer than momen dofu (firm tofu). It had springy texture. Maybe it is preserved food. It absorb seasonings well. Though it wasn’t bad, it was seasoned only soy sauce and suger. Very simple.  I needed shichimi pepper and added on these tofu. Spice added it more flavor.

As you see, it is really simple local breakfast. So, I had precious experience.

My friend ate Hooba miso (朴葉みそ定食, 1200 yen). ”Hooba” is magnolia leaves. Hooba miso is grilled seasoned miso (and some ingredients like mushrooms and vegetables mixed altogether) on the magnolia leaves. But there was only miso. Too sweet for me.

Though snow was letting up, The road was completely covered with snow. And it was still very cold, so we went back to the Seven Eleven and warmed ourselves again. Thanks, Seven 🙂
