Shinjuku ALTA is where often used as a meeting point.
Recently, in such a place, a new chic Taiyaki store is opened!
GIN NO AN.
GIN NO AN became popular among the young, and now, it expands stores and becoming more popular.
When it opened, it was too crowed that you have to line, but recently, it gets easier and you can buy without lining on weekdays.
Croissant-Taiyaki’s dough is croissant and it crunchy when you bite.
Granulated sugar sprinkled on croissant makes it more crunchy and sweet!
Dough is like pie or danish.
24 dough are layered and baked in a special Taiyaki oven.
If you buy more than 5, they will give you a box to bring.
Otherwise, they will give you just a paper bag.
If you want to eat there, of course they would give you by hand.
Taiyakis are baked one by one in the glass sided kitchen.
While I am waiting, I can smell pleasant butter smell and it makes me exciting!
Other than basic flavor of sweet bean paste, there are chocolate flavor, cream flavor, and so on.
Fans come here to have seasonal flavors.
I have my favorite one, cream flavor ¥210!
I try square-shaped Taiyaki for the first time in my life.
Plenty of granulated sugar gives delight to sweet-tooth like me!
If you ask them to give it by hand, they will give you with this.
When staff gives me Taiyaki, they always say
“I hope you enjoy!”
which makes me so happy even before I eat.
With a crunching and grinding sound,
sweet butter flavor spread in my mouth.
What a delightful moment it is!
Though cream often gets out when you eat Taiyaki, this square-shape keeps cream inside and much easier to eat!
Croissant-Taiyaki changed image of Taiyaki!
Once you knew this taste, you cannot go for other one!
Cream is richly contained and so smooth.
Cream and sweetness of dough is balanced very well!
This unique Taiyaki must be good for souvenir too!
When you eat at home, make sure to warm them up with oven.
Since there are many flavors, it’s fun to share with friends.
Please try this new combination of Croissant- Taiyaki!
