If someone asks me what kind of food I miss from Japan, I would say one of them is Japanese delicate sweet. There are certain food and sweet which you just can’t make at home. My girl friend recently visited Japan and brought me back Monaka, Japanese sweet. Monaka is made of azuki bean jam filling between two really thin and delicate wafers. It looks some what like Macaroon from photos below, but it is not. It looks so pretty and taste so delicate and yummy. Usually the filling could be Azuki beans, chestnuts, and this one was white beans. This sweet is from a very famous store called TORAYA http://www.toraya-group.co.jp/english/. They have two stores in U.S., but Canada. I wish they have one here…..
