There is nothing more comforting than a sweet bowl of zenzai! Zenzai is a traditional warm Japanese dessert soup made with azuki (sweet beans) and plump hot mochi (glutinous rice).
Unique to Okinawa, you’ll often find zenzai served cold atop a bowl of shaved ice as a sweet summer treat. This Okinawa-style zenzai includes kokuto which is gently simmered with oshimugi (pressed barley) and kintoki-mame (kidney beans).
Hokugan celebrated its 55th anniversary this year and continues to reflect the local island philosophy of sincerity, humility, and service.
