I was supposed to eat Okonomiyaki in Little Tokyo, unfortunately the resto selling it is closed on mondays, so with nowhere to eat I decided to just buy desserts at Yamazaki Grocery.
I bought the Vanilla Waffle Ice Cream P86 and Chocolate Baumkuchen P68.
Snap cone waffle with chocolate-coated vanilla ice cream.
This was just okay, like eating a vanilla ice cream on a sugar cone dipped in chocolate.
The Baumkuchen aka the "King of Cakes", which literally means "Tree Cake"
is a traditional German cake of many layers which reveals/resembles the rings on a crosscut tree when sliced.
It was introduced to Japan by Karl Juchheim in 1917 and is now one of the most popular pastries in the country (Japan).
Personally I think of it as thin strips of chocolate cake rolled like a tape.
It smelled good. The aroma itself was already satiating, the taste though was ordinary, like any Japanese chocolate cake. But of the two, this was the better one. I wouldn't mind buying this again, maybe in vanilla this time.
