Sohonke Mehariya

Sohonke Mehariya

Mehari-zushi, a rice ball wrapped in a pickled takana leaf, is the Kumano area’s local food. It is said that it was named “Mehari (eyes wide open)” because people were surprised by its flavor and size.

At Sohonke Mehariya, established in 1962, Mehari-zushi are made a little smaller in size, making it easier for women and the elderly to eat. Since the Mehari-zushi is made to order, the sauce is well blended into the warm rice, enhancing its flavor. The takana stem dressed with soy sauce-based sauce inside the rice ball is also a perfect addition.

In addition to Mehari-zushi, a variety of other dishes such as kushikatsu (fried pork on sticks) and Kishu tuna are also available. The oden with a special secret miso sauce is a must-try.
