Sendaiya serves natto like you’ve never seen (or smelled) before

Natto, or fermented soybeans, is a love it or hate it food. You either love or hate the taste, smell and sliminess of it. But Sendaiya, in Ikejiri-Ohashi and Shimokitazawa, is a Natto specialty store that may convert some naysayers to natto.

Do“natto”s and coffee?

Sendaiya has created an original line up of 12 donuts made with ground natto powder as a batter ingredient. With flavors like chocolate, strawberry, as well as the more traditional kinako and matcha azuki (green tea and red bean), these donuts with just a hint of natto’s distinct taste might be the first natto anything that you can say you actually ate…and enjoyed!
