Minamoto Kitchoan in Rockefeller Center

When I talk about being in the city and trying new places, Minamoto Kitchoan is one of those places. Located on 5th Avenue and 49th Street, this Japanese bakery is the ultimate in unique desserts. Their locations in addition to New York City are: Tokyo, San Francisco, London, Singapore and Shanghai. The sales clerks are very friendly, and didn't make me feel dumb not knowing what I was looking at in the shop. The flavor and texture of these little gems is out-of-the-ordinary. 

Here is some information from their website: 

“Wagashi” Healthy Food

Delicious Japanese sweets full of natural goodness. “Wagashi” contains red bean, kidney beans, glutinous rice, powdered rice, sweet potatoes, sesame, agar-agar and sugar. “Wagashi” is full of sun kissed goodness and high in plant protein. There is almost no animal fat, which makes it a wholesome, healthy product. Natural unrefined sugar is one of the important ingredients in “Wagashi”.
 The sugar is not only sweet but it is made from pure carbohydrates and they are totally natural. Served with a cup of hot green tea, the perfect traditional complement to the sweetness of this confection. If you have any questions or would like to place order, please contact your nearest MINAMOTO KITCHOAN store. 

The design is amazing and the packaging is divine. If you know of someone who loves Japanese food and culture, what a great gift any of these items would make! Something you will not find in many other cities, a true foodie delight! Be sure to stop in if you are in the area and looking for that unique place unlike any other.
