This popular souvenir from Kyoto is a crispy choux pastry filled with sweet matcha paste encased by mochi for a soft and chewy enjoyable texture.
Why not try the unique combination of a western-style dessert mixed together with traditional Japanese Wagashi dessert.
I enjoyed this with a nice cup of green tea. The Chou is light and a great contrast to the sweet beanpaste inside. Delicious treat.
Thank you Anna-Marie! We are so glad to hear you enjoyed them.
