Dorayaki is said to have originated at Usagiya in Ueno, Tokyo, and there are many famous restaurants in Tokyo, including Kameju in Asakusa. However, like most confectionary shops in Japan, it is a family-owned business, so it has remained a local favorite. Also, since Dorayaki is a fresh confectionery, it has a short expiration date, so you can't go far away.

This time, Seijuken's "Dorayaki" from among such "Dorayaki" in Tokyo. Incidentally, I remember that Ume-Dora at Shichino (Ibaraki) was the best among the "Dorayaki" I've eaten so far.

When I opened the simple white box (Usagiya and Shichino are both simple white boxes) with "Daifuku-cho" written on it, I found that the brown Dorayaki was all over the place. It's a bit of a pity that it's somewhat crushed by the impact of transportation.

When I took out one of the cellophane bags and opened it, it smelled like sweet castella, just as I expected. If I put my nose even closer, I'm already enraptured, I'll be taken to heaven. When you cut it in half, you can see that there is a lot of red bean paste inside, and it is puffy and puffy.

When I ate it, I was enveloped in its fragrance. This is. The first thing that spread in my mouth was a bit of bitterness that was burnt to a crisp, and the flavor of red bean paste that seemed to be minimized in sweetness. All of this creates a unique individuality that leads people to the Dorayaki world. The bitterness of "Dorayaki" strangely matches with the subtlety of the writing on the box, that is. At first, I thought, "What?", but as I got used to it, I started to like it.
