New Japanese Sweet-Potato Restaurant

Stefany B. | Apr 15, 2001 10:43 PM

Hero's Sweet Potato is what its called(Yaki-imo in Japanese is roasted sweet potato) a small fast-food restaurant on 13th between Fifth and University specializing in yaki-imo and other sweet potato dishes. Its a small place where Borgo Antico Pizza used to be and has been open for about a month.

I had one of the roasted sweet potatoes today- Japanese sweet potatoes are golden inside and taste more like roasted chestnuts than the yams and sweet potatoes we're used to. It was really good and can be had with various toppings such as maple syrup or peanut butter or sour cream.

Any info out there about this treat?
