“Perfect dessert!”
Review of Arakaki Zenzaiya

Arakaki Zenzaiya
Ranked #1 of 10 Dessert in Motobu-cho
Restaurant details
Reviewed 8 September 2015

We stumble upon this place (based on a Taiwanese travel blog post) after our lunch at Kishimoto Shokudo, only a 2 minute walk from the noodle place.

This place is one of those really good Japanese place, where they do one thing well and one thing only. Red-bean shaved ice. Usually the red-bean dessert elsewhere, are either mashed or sweetened. but not this place, these red-beans taste really fresh (seriously not artifically treated) and simple (I know that simple is not really a word to describe a taste, but it really did felt that way). Definately worth a visit!

This is a straightforward shop that serves one thing, and one thing only: shaved ice on top of zenzai (stewed, sweet red beans - served on the bottom under the shaved ice).

Procedures:
1. Go to vending machine and figure out how many servings you want.
2. Pay money, select serving size, collect ticket and change
3. Give ticket to the person in the kitchen area
4. Wait for delicious delivery

I looked at the vending machine for a good long while trying to figure out if I was missing some other option but the only option I found was that one kind though I'm thinking they might have an option with rice cakes (I forgot to ask but you should ask and add a review!).
