Taiyaki

In my last blog post describing a visit to Nezu, we found a store with a long line-up during our walk from Nezu Shrine to the subway.

So we lined up (like lemmings) and bought a couple of Taiyaki, a Japanese fish-shaped cake.

Taiyaki, which means baked sea bream, is made using regular pancake or waffle batter. The most common filling is red bean paste that is made from sweetened azuki beans.

Another Taiyaki shop near our neighborhood.

    • Good question. We continued walking and there was another Taiyaki shop about one block further and there was no one.

      I think this was a famous store, featured in newspapers and magazines.
