Taiyaki is Japanese popular sweets.
Do you know Taiyaki? Taiyaki is a fish-shaped waffle filled with red bean jam.
Every Japanese people knows and has ever eaten Taiyaki, that is loved from the old days.
By the way, if you want to get Taiyaki in Tokyo, which store is the best to get it?
Azsuki.com staffs definitely recommend Ajisaki.
Ajisaki is at Seibu Ikebukuro department store, B1 floor. That department store is directly connected Ikebukuro station. So it’s easy to get to there.
You go there, you will find the store soon because of a long queue. Almost of day time there is a long queue in front of the store. – When I came to the store, there’s no queue because I know when the people isn’t there at all. –
Anyway they sell some kinds of Taiyaki. You can choose a standard Taiyaki just filled with red bean jam, or filled with maccha cream and Shiratama, which is a rice cake ball, or filled with custard cream, or filled with cream cheese and red bean jam, and so on.
We recommend you to eat a standard Taiyaki and absolutely the one filled with cream cheese and red bean jam!
The second one is named Ogura cream cheese Taiyaki. Ogura means smashed red beans paste.
Once the Taiyaki is into your mouth, the sweetness of Ogura and the very fresh sourness of cream cheese mix in your mouth and you are really deeply moved! It’s great!
Very soft waffle, browned burnt and fragrant. The smell makes you hungry!
We would like you to try it and sure you never regret even as ten bought. Check it out!
