Taiyaki Wakaba (たいやき わかば)
This shop was established in 1950 (53th in Showa period)
Taiyaki (鯛焼き) 140 yen
One flavor only !
Well, which do I start eating, head or tail ?
From head 🙂
Because many taiyaki have little anko in the part of the tail.To tell the truth, I like more its skin than anko in.
So I keep my delight until last.
There is no part that have little anko ! :O
This taiyaki was the fattest taiyaki that I had ever seen.
“You are overweight ! :P”
Its skin tasted good with burnt smell. Corner of the skin was crispy.
The anko is sweet and a little salty. Recently many wagashi shop makes slightly sweet anko, but this shop’s anko is very sweet. It is a very taste of Showa. 🙂
This dish says…
” Plenty of anko filled from head to tail of the taiyaki make the world happy “
This is a poem that was written after the war by poet who lived Yotsuya.
It seemed that taiyaki that is filled with plenty of anko from head to tail was luxuries just after the war. So such a poem was written.
Well, most of people want taiyaki filled with plenty of anko even now 😛
Though I like taiyaki that have spaces moderately…
Of course, I hate hollow one.
