Edamame are young soybeans, best eaten warm and still in the pod and often served as a bar snack in Japan. I picked up a taste for edamame in the izakaya bars of Tokyo but I haven’t found them as easy to find here in Paris… until today at the friendly local Picard.
They are only 2€95 for a good size box, which is much better than the 5€ which I had previously paid at KIOKO. I actually didn’t get a chance to try them out as much as I would have liked since my kids wolfed down practically the full box, but thankfully I picked up several boxes! They come with a sauce for you to cook them up in, but I have never had them like that before so I gave the sauce a miss and enjoyed the straight taste of the lovely bean.
