Oh My Obanyaki


This is called 'Obanyaki' (pronounced Oh-bun-yucky). It's a thick round cake filled with Anko (sweet azuki paste), which they make on a big iron mold. They sometimes also make it with a cream filling, too.

We have an Obanyaki booth near the Tokorozawa Station and a lot of people line up to buy it on weekends. You can buy one for 50yen. It's really good!

They have the same kind in Taiwan and it comes in cream filling as well.
