~> AWARD-WINNING JAPANESE DESSERTS (Sept)
With a total of 7 award-winning shops in Osaka, Kyoto and Tokyo, Japanese desserts specialist Yukinoshita has announced the opening of its first overseas café in Hong Kong this September.
A tumultuous arrival for Dessert Lover
A tumultuous new arrival on Haven Street, Causeway Bay, dessert lovers of Hong Kong will soon be able to enjoy a taste of Yukinoshita’s acclaimed signature items, their legendary atsuyaki thick-fried pancakes (the first of its kind in Hong Kong) and Japanese-style kakigori shaved ice.
Yukinoshita pancakes resemble thick cakes rather than thin western- style pancakes, and are typically served with various types of fruits, flavours and ingredients. The pancakes use Japanese free-range eggs and non-pasteurized milk, resulting in the batter’s famously smooth and melting texture.
1-5 Haven Street
The kakigori Japanese shaved ice also has a strong ingredient focus. At Yukinoshita, only select seasonal fruits sourced directly from farmers in Japan are chosen to create the various flavours of syrups and shaved ice, giving way to an unrivalled boldness and freshness in taste not typically found in other commercial shaved ice products.
