I tried Kiyoken's winter limited menu "Yokohama Mooncake Chocolate & Chocolate". The contents of the bean paste, which is made by adding chocolate to azuki beans from Hokkaido, are exquisitely wrapped in smooth chocolate cream.
This mooncake, which has been on sale since December, will end on Valentine's Day on February 14th. Before that, I rushed to buy it. The price is 160 yen (tax included) per piece.
When you bite into the chocolate and bean paste, the two flavors compete with each other in your mouth. The fragrant cacao is obviously chocolate, but when it is combined with the sticky bean paste that is typical of mooncakes, it has a mysterious taste.
Combined with the moist dough of mooncakes, you will not know whether you are eating Chinese sweets, Western sweets, or Japanese sweets. However, the aftertaste was a little more chocolate scent, so I decided to think of it as a kind of chocolate pie.
Next, is black tea, coffee or oolong tea the best drink to combine together? I'm going to get lost in various ways. By the way, in my opinion, straight hot black tea is the most familiar. I would like to see this season not only this year but also next year.
