Kagawa people traditionally eat "Anmochi-zouni," bean-jam rice cake in Shiro-miso (white bean paste) soup on New Year's Day. This cuisine may be unbelievable for people in other prefectures, but everyone in Kagawa loves it. Back in the day when sugar was a luxury item, people at that time took up the custom of eating luxurious bean-jam rice cakes at least once a year, on New Year's day. At Kyukamura Sanuki-goshikidai, we prepare Anmochi-zouni for dinner buffet every day. Try and enjoy the marriage of salty and tasty soup and sweet bean-jam rice cake.

香川県の雑煮は「あん餅雑煮」

香川県民がお正月に食べるのは、白味噌ベースの出汁に、野菜とあん餅が入った「あん餅雑煮」です。他県民にとっては衝撃的ですが、香川県ではごくごく当たり前。その昔、砂糖が貴重だった時代に、お正月ぐらいは贅沢をと、雑煮にあん餅を入れて食べたのが始まりのようです。休暇村讃岐五色台の夕食バイキングでも、毎日ご用意しております。出汁の塩味・うまみと、あん餅の甘みが絶妙ですので、是非ご賞味ください。
