Palate-Cleansing Ginger (あじけししょうが Aji keshi shōga) is a special type of ginger plant that can erase the taste of food from one's mouth, making it useful if one plans to eat another meal of a different taste. It is also a useful seasoning for food and can fetch a price of up to 500 yen a slice.
Within Gourmet Town, in order for each food store to compete with each other fairly without customers misjudging the taste of one meal after having eaten a different one, "Gari Boxes" are provided free of charge throughout the city which dispense Palate-Cleansing Ginger for the customers to use in order to clean their mouths before eating another meal, thus keeping competition between restaurants fair and healthy.
