This unusually shaped ice cream is coming from Japan. Now it is the time to treat the rest of the world with delicious Japanese sweets. This adorable ice cream is called taiyaki and is a very popular street food in Japanese streets and not only. The fish-shaped cone is made of waffle or sometimes pancake batter and filled with red bean paste.
Depending on the district and location the shape of an ice cream may vary. For example if you buy one in the Chinatown or Little Italy neighborhood, the fish’s mouth is wide open treating you with ice cream of such flavors as green tea and black sesame. Plus there is a small surprise in the tale of the fish: a custard or red bean, just to make sure you enjoyed every single bite of your treat.
If you are wandering around Manhattan, stop by the Taiyaki NYC shop. This delicious and beautiful ice cream in a cute fish shaped cone is available seven days per week.
