The lines at the top of the hill are for the chukaman savory and sweet steamed buns at the popular 50ban. With over two-dozen types to select from including shrimp, pork, kaibashira (scallops), cheese, curry and sweet ones like custard or coconut. This is the perfect street food for walking around. The refrigerated window showcases the manju and shumai. The staff suggests getting them cold if you are going to steam them at home.
