canelé du japon

IMG_5044 After having my latte at Streamers, I went to Canelé du Japon, as they are just down the street.

For winter they have two flavors, hazelnut (top) and secchu-carrot (right). Secchu is literally "in the snow". So this flavor is "carrots in the snow".

It's a good thing when you can actually taste what is supposed to be in there like carrots and hazelnuts.

I also got anzu (apricot(bottom)) and kurozato kurumi (black sugar walnut (left)), from their regular line-up of flavors.

I'm glad I got to try them again they didn't disappoint.

p.s. it's Chinese New Years today, "Kung Hee Fat Choy", if you're celebrating! and have a nice weekend.

A canele shop just down the street...that would be such a dangerous thing for me. We WERE supposed to go into Milan for the chinese new year celebrations but with this rain, no way. Looking forward to drier days...

bummer you couldn't go to Milan, Rowena. Sending you some sun!

Take care!
