kimura fruit

kimura (2) The other night Satoshi brought home dessert from Kimura Fruit, a large fruit distributor in Osaka which has been in business since 1910.

Their desserts are always topped with the freshest most colorful fruits.

On this day, he brought home 2 fruit daifuku.

kimura (3) These were soft and delicious. Since both were a little different, Satoshi said we should cut them in half and share.

They were so soft that they were kind of squished after I cut them.

This one had yellow cake, whipped cream, strawberries and was covered with the thin mochi (rice cake) that daifuku usually has.

kimura This one had yellow & chocolate cake, whipped cream, strawberries, other fruits and was covered with a thin mochi.

Both were delicious. (Thanks Satoshi!)

Dang that's looking good right now ... my wife brought home some cute cakes the other day but they turned to be tasteless. :( I think I won't show her those pictures, just to be on the safe side!
