When I first saw this picture of a Japanese taiyaki hot cakes, I was immediately captured by how detailed and delicious these traditional sweets looked. I have eaten something similar in Hong Kong, where the edge of the mini pancake is crispy and crunchy to bite into, but the batter in the middle is still soft, sweet and dewy. But the ones in Hong Kong are more like round like little balls, I have never seen the fish shaped pancakes until now. And of course, I’m hungry just looking at them… anyone else craving to have a bite of a fish shaped pancake, like I am now?
