HORAIYA HONTEN SHOYU KOJI 340ML
宝来屋本店 糀屋がつくった醤油こうじ 340ML
Horaiya Honten Koji Shoyu is made by adding fermented rice malt (Koji) to artisan soy sauce and left to mature further for 12 months. A sweeter and thicker finish than regular shoyu (Soy Sauce) that complements tofu, sushi and sashimi. Try seperating the koji rice grains and serving them on mackerel sashimi, amazing.
Currently used by many of our Michelin Starred Customers.
