Long-standing oil shop with a 200 years history
Yamanaka Abura-ten is a long-standing oil shop, established in the early 19th century. They offer oils that are both fragrant and full-flavored such as olive oil and sesame oil. While choosing the oil, they carefully check who grew the ingredients, the field’s condition and the state of the oil refinery so as to ensure their quality and thus only few trusted products are selected for sale. Above all, the Aromatic Peanut Oil (180 g; 1,155 yen) is one of their most popular items. Customers exclaim with surprise after tasting its pungent flavor of freshly roasted peanuts that makes a great for addition to many kinds of dishes such as Chinese and stir-fry as well as in a dressing.
