Honey shop PBees in Ushigome-Kagurazaka: Delicious honey dorayaki

Dorayaki (どら焼き) is a type of Japanese traditional sweets that often looks familiar to foreigners. It resembles two pancakes, pasted together with strawberry jam. But don’t be deceived! The most traditional filling for dorayaki is Azuki red bean paste, which is sweet, but has nothing common with fruit jam. Luckily, these days the Japanese are open for new experiments. At PBees in Ushigome-Kagurazaka you can try honey dorayaki (ハニどら), the most delicious Japanese dorayaki! Many customers share the same opinion with me.PBees in Ushigome-Kagurazaka

PBees in Ushigome-Kagurazaka does not have an eat-in area, but you can start nibbling your honey dorayaki as soon as you leave the shop. It is generally not comme il faut to eat on the streets in Japan, but those babies are just too irresistible. Take my advice and leave a bigger half of it to complement a nice cup of black coffee. The combination is just out of this world. In my opinion, caffeine effortlessly brings out the best of pancake/honey/cream cheese combination. As if the cream cheese with New Zealand honey wasn’t enough.PBees in Ushigome-Kagurazaka

The shop is abundantly decorated with toy kiwi (the national bird of New Zealand), bears and bees.PBees in Ushigome-KagurazakaThe most famous honey from New Zealand is Manuka. It is believed that Manuka honey has strong antibacterial and healing properties, but I just like the sweet, caramel-like taste. It is considerably more expensive than other kinds of honey, though. A variety of different honeys, other bee products (pollen, beeswax, Propolis etc.), and even cosmetics can be bought at the shop.
