After eating B-Speak‘s roll cake in the car, we walked around this charming hot spring town. Apart from onsens, there’s also art galleries, cafes, boutiques, mountains and lake.
We also ate our way through town…
Snoopy Cafe… so kawaii!
green tea mochi… super soft…
Wagyu beef BBQ skewers… 500 yen only! Unfortunately, this was really tough.. not Wagyu.. ripoff
We passed by this bakery, Milch, and stopped because of the fragrant smell of cheese.
cheescake (cold and hot)…. both versions were delicious and so rich.. but the hot version was so amazing cause it was piping hot!
caramel milk custard… creamy, rich and so smooth! I love the little container it came in so much that I kept two of it!
FAIM? OUI OUI!!
Street eats @ Yufuin, Japan
Back in May, we went on a 6 day road trip in Japan’s Kyushu island. We rented a car from Fukuoka and drove around the northern/mid part of the island. Our first stop was this quaint onsen (hot spring) town called Yufuin. As we were heading to another onsen later that day, we spent our time in Yufuin sightseeing and eating.
The most famous food there is B-Speak’s cream roll cake.
B- Speak is so popular that it usually gets sold out before the afternoon. We got there before it opened at 10am and the line was already around the corner.
We ended up buying 1 large size vanilla cream roll cake and 3 minis: 2 vanilla and 1 chocolate. There wasn’t a place to sit and eat.. so we ate in the car.
As usual, the Japanese wrapping and packaging was so intricate.. so many layers to reveal!
the fluffiest cream cake! and the cake with the butteriest and creamiest taste and smell! No other roll cake can compare to this! My dad, who originally said “roll cake is roll cake.. it’s just the hype,” loves it so much that to this day, is reminiscing about this cake.
The chocolate was good.. but not as buttery as the original…
FAIM? OUI OUI!!
