Waffle Fish: Essentially Japanese

29 May

Haha, had a little fun today!  My roommate and I went wandering and we finally got the chance to try these fish-shaped waffle treats.  We’ve been dying to try them for a while, but they usually are filled with this bean paste that doesn’t sound too appetizing.  However, today the little shop across from the hotel offered the ones filled with chocolate so we took a chance and grabbed one on the spot.  It cost 100 yen (approx. $1), and was pretty good.  I thought it was a little bland (literally a pancake filled with cheap chocolate), but I think it has a lot of potential.  I want to try making one with sweeter pancake batter and perhaps a more flavorful chocolate.  Still, I had fish-shaped waffles! How awesome is that?!?

      Lol! 😛 They were pretty tasty! Is that what they are called? We weren’t sure since the name was in Japanese. Now we know how to ask for them in the future! 🙂

        yes! It is called taiyaki. The fillings is traditionally sweet red bean but people just put whatever they want it in now haha. They sometimes sell mini ones as well at some stores 🙂
