The other day, we finally got to try a new shop called Mönchen gladbach which recently opened in Daimaru Umeda.
The two times Satoshi tried to buy something from them after work they were sold out.
Then once when we went to Daimaru on a weekday, the wait was 40 minutes!
Finally on Wednesday, Satoshi and I went to see if the line was long and there wasn't any, so we ordered several items...
The baguette eclair...this is made baguette dough and filled with custard..and is 26 centimeters (about 10 inches) long!
We tried one coated with sweet chocolate and nuts, filled with chocolate cream.
We also tried one with custard and topped with almonds....both yum!
They also had pretzels...salty and chewy...delicious!
They also have a chocolate dipped version which could be dangerous...
An item called Mönchen Berg, looks like the Japanese Mont Blanc, but is a yellow cake topped with sweet potato.
A bit too rich for me, probably because it had some liqueur in it.
We also tried their petit financier..milk and noisette..very moist.
Overall, very delicious and at least we didn't have to wait in an insane line to try them.
Mönchen gladbach (UPDATE: 2/2016 this shop is no longer in business)
It's Friday and we're expecting some rain this weekend, hope you have a great weekend!
