This is a Tai-yaki, the ever delicious fish-shaped cake that is usually filled with sweet beans. But this one is even better (in my opinion)....it's filled with purple yam!!!
I really wanted to show you how purple the yam is inside...but it was so good, I forgot to take a photo before eating it all. Oops. Well, you'll have to take my word for it...the sweet and munchy fish was delicious!
A lot of high school kids buy it on their way home with friends or little kids beg their mom to stop and buy some on the way back from the grocery store. The Tai-yaki is really popular with everyone.
As for me...I can't wait to get another one to snack on while taking a walk around Shinjuku with my camera!
