The restaurant popular amongst Muslim customers, Japanese restaurant Matsuri’s new challenge
Thay decided to sell the very popular sauce in respond to the many demands of Muslim customers wishing to purchase the sauce. The price is 350 yen each. It is also recommended as a souvenir gift. Wholesaling will start simultaneously.
Why is the Matsuri sauce so popular? We asked the store owner on the commitments and devices made.
“Uniqueness and difficulties in the process”
The secret to Matsuri sauce is the “Blend organic manufacturing method,” which involves selecting the finest crops grown in rich nature (organic tomato, onion, and apple), and making the sauce without haste to bring out the smell and flavors of the vegetable and fruits. Also, richness and depth is added to the sauce by blending these fruits and vegetables with dark sweet soy sauce and mirin-style condiment (soy sauce and mirin-style condiment are HALAL-certified). This is how the Matsuri original sauce was born.
It was very difficult to select amongst many ingredients to bring out the flavors of vegetables. We changed the ratio of ingredients many times from several tens of kinds of sauce until we could find the perfect combination. The sauce becomes too bland when made from only vegetables and fruits, making it difficult for the sauce to fit with other ingredients, and so we added richness to the plain sauce by blending soy sauce and mirin-style condiment.
