Purple sweet potatoes must be one of the most beautiful vegetables. Their natural color is better than any imitation food coloring out there. So when I came across a shop selling these sweet potato-filled buns steaming in a wooden box on a side street, I had to buy one! … And then I bought another.
For 100 yen each, I should have followed the girl next to me and bought a 6-pack. They were that good. I love the thin, soft ‘bun’. The flavor is all sweet potato – sweet like honey, creamy, and steaming hot!
