Put the fluffy cooked Akashiyaki into the Honke Kimuraya's secret dashi soup. It is no exaggeration to say that the dashi soup is the important element of its taste same as fluffy dough and technique of cooking. This dashi soup was made only for the Akashiyaki, please try and taste it.

Akashiyaki is served very hot so everyone say "It's hot, it's hot!" for the fist bite. But this is the important point to enjoy delicious Akashisyaki, eat it while it is hot.

Also, there is another way to enjoy Honke Kimuraya's Akashiyaki besides eating with dashi soup. Please try to eat Akashiyaki with "Special sauce" or "Salt" too.

The Special sauce tastes like the sauce of Takoyaki in Osaka, the rich flavor and sweetness of the sauce fills your mouth when you take a bite.
Eating with the salt, you can taste the flavor of the dough as it is. Because they have confidence of their dough of Akashiyaki, they propose to eat it only with salt.

6,The comments from EnjoyJapan!

Honke Kimuraya's shop curtain

First time in Akashi, it is difficult to decide the restaurant where you eat Akashi yaki. It is not bad that you buy some Akashi yaki different and compere their taste. Each restaurant has different taste and most of them are good.

But we recommend to eat the first Akashi yaki at "Honke Kimuraya" where there is always a waiting line.

We show you the best way to enjoy this Akashiyaki. First, eat it with secret Dashi soup (Japanese broth made from fish and kelp), then put the salt on Akashiyaki and taste the dough as it is. At last please put the original sauce.
This is the best way EnjoyJapan! recommend to enjoy Honke Kimuraya's Akashiyaki. Please taste the great harmony of cold beer and hot Akashiyaki at Honke Kimuraya!
