Oiwake Dango Reviews

Oiwake Dango Google Average Rating



Delicious dango at an amazing price. The mitarashi is a classic - salty, sweet, and weirdly addictive. They were unlike anything I have ever tasted, but I’m a convert after trying them. The mugwort is herbaceous with the anko to provide a bit of sweet pop and some texture. Elegance and flavour for ~$2 a skewer - don’t miss it.


I’ve been to this dango shop at least 10 times over the years. Dango are always perfect. Always go for their kakigori (shaved ice) during summer. I will always go back for more.


Omg the queue was crazy when I was there. But it was worth it! Do take note that the queue for the in-house cafe/kissa is separate from the takeout queue. Don’t hold back, get a bit of everything like I did! The shaved ice was great as the brown sugar syrup tasted real good.
