The crispy sweet pie contains eel extracts and garlic powder. I know it would sounds gross, but it is surprisingly delicious.
Now this Unagi Pie build a limited-time (3/28 – 5/6) pop-up store near from Laforet Harajuku. You’ll find super big (more than 4m) faux Unagi Pie easily.

The original shop of ‘the tiramisu hero’ is located in Singapore; however, there is a Japanese branch shop in Chiba prefecture.

I chose a package of the charactor named “Robo-Nyan”. The main and most popular character Giba-Nyan is also on back of the package.
“Caramel” is only the official name in this time, the flavor is condensed milk. It is named “Zeppin Gyunyu” means like “awesome milk”.
That milk is the important item in Yokai Watch game/anime.

yukimi_4

So many people into the latest neo Japanese sweets Haagen-Dazs, both of 2 different type of small dessert cups contains mochi dumplings.
It was soon nicknamed Mochi-Dazs on internet, and it goes viral.
I saw tons of these ice cream cups at my nearest supermarket on-selling day, but next day, there’s nothing and the small handwritten poster says “all of the latest Haagen-Dazs were sold out”.
People like me, who could not get that, are trying to make their original “Mochi-Dazs like ice cream” and show these off on SNS.

I also tried this easiest recipe – just put some kinako powder (roasted soybean powder) and kuromitsu (brown sugar syrup) onto Yukimi-Daifuku, mochi dumpling covered vanilla ice cream.
It’s really funny + fun, and of course tasty. I’ll make more very soon.
