We visited Asakusa last weekend for having mango.
Fruits Parlor Goto is a cafe that is located in Asakusa area and they have fresh seasonal fruits.
They shop serve parfait, pancake, fresh juice and so on at inexpensive price.
This photo was taken when I visited there after work around 6 p.m. So there was no people waiting. But when I visited there last weekend, there were many people waiting around this shop.
There’s waiting sheet in front of the door and we have to write our own name and the number of group when the seats are occupied.
Mango can be eaten all year around in Japan because mango come from all over the world such as Mexico, Philippines, Thailand.
We can enjoy mango with ease all year around.
But of course, mango come from somewhere warm places in Japan, too.
Those are expensive because those are brought up under farmers’ own care until mango falls from tree naturally.
“Taiyo no tamago (太陽のタマゴ)” from Miyazaki prefecture is said to be the most expensive and sweetest mango in Japan.
It is so expensive. I know it is now around 2000 yen at the lowest estimates.
Taiyo no tamago means “eggs of sun”.
Fruits Parlor Goto serve this mango parfait at relatively inexpensive price (current price).
So, we can have the parfait at 3000 yen that time. We were excited when those four parfait came on our table !
3000 yen is expensive ? Yes. But no.
I think another shops require over 3500 yen.
And it’s worth trying. So sweet. So flavorful.
Melting in my mouth…
Everyone ate it up in silent. We deeped in eating :p
Mango was at the bottom of the container, too. The sorbet was made with “Taiyo no tamago” that time.
If you want to eat this parfait, you should go there soon.
Price of Taiyo no Tamago is going to be higher in July and August and Goto is scheduled to quit serving it after the price become too high.
They say they are scheduled to keep serving it in June. But if the price unexpectedly shot up during June, they will give up serving it during the month.
