The Oyamada Senbei
Introducing your new dinner party smorgasbord addition: nanbu senbei, a type of Japanese wheat cracker that’s a staple in the Hachinohe diet. You’ll want to head to The Oyamada Senbei to stock up. Run by third-generation nanbu-senbei makers intent on preserving their craft, the century-old shop has been making the delicate crackers using the same method since 1936. Try them topped with peanuts or wild sesame seeds, or order made-to-order tenpo senbei. Unlike the traditional nanbu senbei, this variation has a doughy consistency similar to bread. They’re so fragile that they can’t be transported and are therefore only available fresh off the cast-iron grill.
