I have to admit that I really like Japanese desserts and so I have been missing them terribly now that I am back living in Canada. This blog post is a collection of pictures I took of different desserts consumed in Tokyo. Enjoy, but don’t look on an empty stomach – you have been fairly warned!
Dango is a Japanese dumpling made from mochiko (rice flour) that is usually served in a skewer, with peanut on the side.
Taiyaki is a fish-shaped cake with the most common filling of red bean paste made from sweetened azuki beans.
Azuki or red bean paste is a popular form of filling.
Another typical Japanese dessert is small mochi, Japanese glutinous rice cake, served in a red bean soup.
Royal Host is a popular chain of family restaurants in Tokyo serving desserts in their menu – ice cream, red bean and fruit.
Finally, Japanese style western sundaes FTW!
Which one is your favorite?
