The restaurant's representative menu, "Pastry," is fried flat wheat dough topped with cinnamon sugar and chocolate. The shape is similar to the tail of the animal "Beaver" that symbolizes Canada, so the store name was changed to Beaver Tails.
Even if it is called "the tail of a beaver", it doesn't really come to mind because the beaver itself is not very familiar. I went to the store to see what it was like!
■ I went to Beaver Tails!
Beaver Tails is about a 5-minute walk from the north exit of Jiyugaoka Station. The landmark is the storefront, which is based on red and white.
The interior of the store is also based on red and white. There are 20 seats in the store and 8 seats on the terrace.
When you enter the store, first order at the counter. The menu includes 12 types of "pastries" of various flavors, "Beaver Sundae" with pastries and soft milk ice cream in a cup, coffee and other drinks, as well as gelato and smoothies.
I ordered 2 kinds of pastries and hot coffee this time. For the pastry flavor, I chose "Cinnamon Sugar" (430 yen), which is the most recommended, and "Chocolate + Banana" (540 yen), which I was attracted to by the pictures on the menu table. * All prices include tax
All pastries are served after the dough is stretched and fried for each order, so after ordering, you will have to wait for a while at your seat. When it's done, it will be called by the receipt number, so go to the counter to get it.
The number was called in less than 5 minutes and we met the pastry!
Big size than I expected. It's flat and shaped like the "nan" of Indian curry, but it should resemble the "beaver's tail". When I compared it with the beaver illustration on the store poster, it was certainly similar.
◆ Pastry Cinnamon sugar
Cinnamon sugar is a dough that is fried in a golden color and is sprinkled with plenty of cinnamon sugar. The sweet scent of cinnamon is plump. Of course it is hot.
When you bite into it, the surface is crispy and the inside is chewy. The slight sweetness of cinnamon sugar and the crispy texture enhance the aroma of the dough. From the dough itself, the sweetness of wheat is slightly as you chew.
In addition, the part where the dough swells and becomes like a thin skin has a crisp chip-like texture. The fragrance and the richness of the oil that exudes are irresistible.
The taste is similar to donuts and fried bread, but the chewy texture may make you more satisfied. In addition, it takes time to complete the meal because the sugar and chocolate that stick to the side of the mouth are wiped off every time you bite.
◆ Pastry chocolate + banana
Chocolate is applied to the dough, and sliced bananas are rumbling on it. In addition, fluffy powdered sugar is sprinkled.
The cool and mellow banana and the dough are combined into one, which makes it even more chewy. Firmly embraces the rich sweetness of chocolate that has been fully applied. A voluminous piece with both texture and taste.
◆ Additional order for Beaver Sunday
By the way, I'm curious about "Beaver Sunday", which is a combination of pastries and soft milk ice cream, even though I'm quite full after eating two. This hot and crispy dough and the cool sweet ice cream ... can't go wrong. Just imagining it will make your chest throbbing and give you more space in your stomach. I'm worried about calories, but I decided to order because it was a great opportunity.
Beaver Sundae has three flavors: "plain", "chocolate" and "caramel". The pastries themselves are all plain, and if you choose chocolate or caramel, the soft milk ice cream will be topped with these sauces. The price is 550 yen (tax included).
If it's chocolate, it will be covered with the pastry, so I chose caramel.
Dip plenty of smooth ice cream into the cut pastry and bring it to your mouth.
Hot dough and cool ice cream. As you enjoy the contrast between hot and cold, the ice cream melts and the cool sweetness and richness of the milk spread throughout your mouth. The dough that sucks this changes from a crispy texture to a moist texture gradually. When chewed, it becomes soft and the sweet liquid with the richness of oil exudes from the dough. This is the correct answer! I personally recommend it.
It's a cute shop, so you'll want to eat it in, but it's popular in Canada. In the coming cold season, take a walk in Jiyugaoka while eating hot pastries.
