Korean fish shaped pastry / Bungeoppang / 붕어빵
It was a really cold winter night.
I was walking back to the guest house with my friend when we saw a ajjushi selling this.
We walked passed him but both of us looked at each other at the same time.
There’s only 3-4 Bungeoppang left.
We walked back to him & bought all it’s left so maybe he can go home early!?
It was really very cold. Maybe -8°C !?
I can’t remember how much we paid for it …maybe 1,000Won?
Btw. Bungeoppang (붕어빵) is a Korean pastry similar to Japan’s Taiyaki.
The standard filling is red bean paste but there’s also other filling like custard cream & sweet potato!?
It’s a popular snack during winter. You’ll be able to find street vendors selling it at a lot of places.
Please be careful when you eat, the red bean paste is really hot!
You might get your tounge burned.
Try it out! It’ll definitely warm your hands & stomach during a cold winter day :)
p/s: Again I have to apologize for the lack of updates here.
Actually I’ve been traveling for 1 month & haven’t had time to update.
I suddenly had a crave for Quil fait bon’s tart when we were wandering around Daikanyama. But Ryoko and I don’t really remember where the shop is.. So how could we find the place without any information?
Oh. afraid not. Japanese cell phones has GPS system :) So we search for the place with my cell phone’s GPS system and got there :) Bravo to Japanese mobile phones! I was really impressed with how advance the Japanese cell phones were when I first came to Japan 6 years ago. Everytime I use the GPS system… I will say the same thing to my friends, “日本の携帯は便利ですよね！” (Japanese mobile phones are so convenient!) *laugh Of course now with i Phone, you can find a place easily too with Google maps…
Anyway, this is Quil fait bon （キル フェ ボン）, a yummy tart shop in Tokyo. Other than Daikanyama, they also have branches in Aoyama （青山）, Ginza （銀座）, Yokohama （横浜） and places out of Tokyo too.
This is the first floor where all the yummy tarts are :)
Strawberry tart, 598 Yen per slice.
This seasonal White Strawberry tarts is so damn expensive, 1,575 Yen for one slice :o The whole tart (21cm) is 11,970 Yen! crazy price :o
This place is very popular and gets very crowded on weekends. We waited for around 30 minutes for our seat.
Nice table-cloth yah? Photo taken by Ryoko.
