Warabi-mochi and steamed chestnut youkan(sweet bean jelly cake). Seems like a popular Japanese sweet shop. First impression – very expensive. But I was soon blown away by the elegant taste. Warabi-mochi is unlike any I have tried before – soft and light and wobbly jelly texture with strong black sugar flavour, inside is very smooth bean paste. This thing practically melts in your mouth. Not being a big fan of youkan, I find the steamed chestnut youkan absolutely delicious! Not too sweet – that is very important – with big pieces of chestnuts. The bean cake is smooth and soft. But what really impresses me is the matsukaze(松風), which is slightly sticky steamed cake with black sugar and…soy sauce!! The combination of the sweet bean cake and salty sponge…is just perfect!
