“Dora-yaki” is a traditional Japanese pastry. Two pieces of small pancakes pasted together with “Anko” (sweet bean paste) in between. In Japan we eat it with tea but it is good to have it with coffee or café-latte as well. It’s cool to enjoy Japanese sweets at café, isn’t it?

Enjoy espresso with a Japanese cup. It’s something special.
