I was recently at Kyoto for a meeting and this city proved to be a city of gastromonic adventure as well!
Came across this shop by chance and the baker was in action at the front side of the bakery. The cake batter was rolled on a long thick metal roller pin and baked to yummy perfection.
There are two flavours, butter or green tea. I chose the green tea.
Each layer falls off nicely with each bite and you can taste the sweetened thin sugared coating which holds the layers together. Skillful!
The bitter after taste of the green tea leaf lingers in your mouth after eating.
Each cake cost 1155Yen. Pretty pricey but it was all worth it knowing I might not eat this ever again. A must try in Kyoto!
