Bakery and Sweets
Ikinari Dango, a local Japanese snack, is one of the many little reasons to visit Kumamoto Prefecture. In Kumamoto, Imoya Chobei Shoten is one of the biggest names when it comes to Ikinari Dango. The shop specializes in creating these local sweets in different flavors and forms. As time went by, they were able to produce more varieties such as ice cream, potato chips, and potato sticks.

College friends Kathryn Wong, Aldrin Lim, and Bryan Ahn had an idea in 2014 to put up a resto-café based on Aldrin’s commissary business. 2 years on and they’re still among Pasong Tamo’s most popular cafés, with breads baked fresh every day.
