Ginza : Summer tastes at Matsuzaki Senbei (松崎煎餅)

Summer-limited Japanese sweets at Kanmidokoro.

I visited Matsuzaki Senbei after years interval.
Matsuzaki Senbei is, as its name, they are senbei shop. They sell senbei on the 1st floor.
And also they run kanmidokoro (Japanese confectionery cafe) on the 2nd floor.
There’s an elevator in the building.

Stairs, Matsuzaki Senbei (Ginza)

久々に松崎煎餅に行きました。1階はおせんべいやさん。2階がお茶席という、甘味処になってます。

Though they have really clean and  fresh atmosphere,  Matsuzaki Senbei started their business in 1804. They are so popular shop and their shaved ice have high popularity, but somehow they don’t have much people whenever I go to there.

相当久しぶりに来ましたが、中は前回と全く変わらず。きれいなお店ですが松崎煎餅自体は1804年創業の老舗です。

Nothing has changed about their shop !

Most shops quit serving kakigori the end of September. Matsuzaki Senbei, too  (Ginza)
I thought I won't be able to eat kakigori any more this year. But,,,but,,, I found the shop on my way to Mitsukoshi. It's in front of Ginza subway station ! Matsuzaki Senbei It was 29...

Now Matsuzaki Senbei serve shaved ice (kakigori). They serve shaved ice from May to September.
Yes. Only two days left !

So, we went to there before they finish serving shaved ice in this season.

But my stomach didn’t have enough space to have big shaved ice. So, I ordered cold o-shiruko (冷やししるこ, 1080 yen)
Cold o-shiruko have arare (senbei).
O-shiruko could be chosen one from two type of red bean paste. Strained red bean paste and smashed red bean paste.
I chose strained red bean paste.

大きなかき氷は重く感じたので、冷やし汁粉を注文。軽いものを頼んだはずがもっちり白玉が五つ/(^o^)\

Five shiratama (rice flour dumplings) had springy texture and delicious 🙂

汁粉はこしあんとつぶあんを選べます。こしあんにしました。滑らかで甘さもちょうどよかったです。

Perhaps cold o-shiruko is summer limited as well as shaved ice.
Warm o-shiruko could be eaten all year around.

And my friend ordered shaved ice.
Matcha azuki kakigori (抹茶あずきかき氷, 1080 yen) with ice cream (extra 104 yen)
Kakigori could be ordered with toppings like ice cream, shiratama and condense milk with extra charge (+104 yen each).

From its looking and its taste, the matcha syrup became much stronger than last time. It  had much tastes of matcha.
