Satiating the Taiyaki Cravings...Sorta
For some reason, one thing that I've really been craving over the past week or two has been taiyaki, which is of course one of those Japanese sweet red bean-filled snack things made into the shape of a fish. After lunch, we found a shop called Daruma (6-12-17 Ueno, 6803-2122) that was making them fresh. I'm not exactly an expert on this stuff, but I assume that this was considered to be one of the better renditions of it, as they really brought out the taste of the azuki beans. I was hoping for something just a tad sweeter and mushier though.
