We are excited to announce that Fukutaro’s product Menbei will soon be sold in the United States!
Menbei is a special type of “senbei” – or Japanese cracker made from potato dough – infused with the seafood essence of mentaiko, which is fresh roe marinated in salt and red chili peppers.
Mentaiko, also known as spiced cod roe and considered the red caviar of Japan, is a local delicacy in Fukuoka. It is combined with rice flour and a blend of spices to produce a deliciously thin and crispy wafer.
Enhanced with the signature umami of spiced cod roe, the savory taste is both subtle and complex. Crunchy, salty, and a little spicy, our original Menbei crackers are popular around the world.
Also available in other flavors: corn, edamame and tomato. Try them all!
