Introducing the Namban Shrimp Soft Cream by Uono no Sato of Niigata! The store is located inside the Yuki Guni Kanko Center (sighseeing information center). This delicious - and unusual treat to say the least - can be purchased for 350 yen.

About The Product

The rich raw milk vanilla ice cream is topped with miso, a sembei (rice cracker) and two shrimps.

And two "kanpu boshi" shrimps (sweet shrimps dried by cold winds) are added as topping in a way that they seem to be swimming on top of your ice cream!

This surprising combinantion is perfectly balanced in terms of sweetness and saltiness! The recommended way of eating it is to first try the ice cream with some shrimp miso sauce. Then, eat the shrimp together with the ice cream. And finally, dip the shrimp sembei with what is left of the soft delectable ice cream!

Where To Get It

This is an must-try Niigata dessert exclusively available at the following location!
