Created by the locals, this vegetable has a crisp texture and irresistible spicy kick that's just right! Feast on it with piping hot rice or as a side dish with a drink.
Konburi is a vegetable that took root long ago in the Kasuga region of Ibigawa Town, mainly. It is resistant to damage from snow and wildlife. If you want to enjoy its crisp texture and unique spiciness, it's best to eat it raw with miso. The spiciness mellows out when you heat up the konburi instead, bringing out a sweetness that makes it easy to eat. It's a convenient ingredient that you can use in a variety of dishes, such as tempura and stir-fry.

We've created a konburi meal that lets you savor the flavor of the ingredients and goes great with local sake.
Konburi—a close relative of the asatsuki chive—is simple and well-suited to preparations that take advantage of the flavor of ingredients.
Three dishes using them are served at Robata: konburi tempura, konburi with local miso, and konburi dressed with plum pulp.
Each is prepared in a different way—fried, grilled, and boiled—and all of them pair perfectly with local sake.
Service periodFrom mid-May to late June
Please call in advance when ordering.
