Chadango_2Dango is a Japanese dumpling made from mochiko, rice flour. There are many varieties of dango in Japan and normally three to four dango are often served on a skewer. The texture of the dango is very similar to chinese glutinous flour ball (tang yuan), especially the plain dango, not only the texture, the taste is almost close to tang yuan.

On this post, I would like to share on the Cha Dango from Kyoto, Japan 京の茶だんご. It is a green tea flavour dango where only sells in Kyoto area. I have never see this brand of dango in Tokyo.

8 sticks of Cha Dango in a pack

I bought a pack of cha dango when I visited to Kyoto, it came with 8 sticks in a pack which cost 630yen (about RM24). It was nicely wrap and I think the price is expensive due to the beautiful packing. This is not the first time I ate Cha Dango, the same brand of Cha Dango given by Japanese Colleague from Kyoto was really impressed me. The "Q-ness" texture and green tea taste of the dango was fantastic. I like it!

Please give it a try if you have a chance to visit Kyoto in Japan. You can easily get it from any of the souvenior shop in Kyoto.

I will introduce another type of dango in the next post, please stay tune!
