Last Sunday, Satoshi asked me what kind of dessert he should bring home after work. I asked him to get the pudding from Gokan. I've written about Gokan in the past and we've eaten at their cafe in Kitahama too.
In the Hankyu Department store, I've also walked past the Gokan counter many times and this pudding had caught my eye.
Not just because it looks delicious...but because they are served in these beautiful ceramic tea cups.
The custard pudding is marbled with green tea pudding. And instead of the usual liquid caramel on the bottom, I think the caramel was made with kokuto (literally black sugar or raw sugar).
The pudding is then topped with some sweetened adzuki beans, some shiratama (rice flour dumplings) and some matcha (green tea) gelatin cubes...oh, and a whole strawberry.
We really liked this, it wasn't too sweet and the portion was just right.
