[Tokyo] Hiyoko ひよこ饅頭

with 8 comments

A popular Japanese chick-shaped snack originally invented in Kyushu in 1912. What it is – a thin, soft pastry shell wrapping sweet lima bean paste with a consistency similar to egg yolks. This treat is simple and delicious, perfect with a cup of hot tea!

Unwrapping the packaging reveals the chick-shaped cake. Cute? Cute!
