These award winning Japanese crepes will delight your taste buds14 June, 2012 by Chad
We found this crepe shop beside a department store in Osaka, along with another at Tokyo Dome. It turns out, thanks to their popularity, MOMI&TOY’S (モミアンドトイズ) is everywhere. The gourmet crepe stand’s claim to fame is winning a prestigious silver award in 2010 by the Monde Selection, the global consumer equivalent of being awarded Michelin stars.
MOMI&TOY’S crepes boast some fine ingredients. An innovative point is that it uses crushed almonds inside of its batter instead of the usual flour. In addition to being healthier, it gives the crepes their unique soft fabric-like texture that simply melts in one’s mouth.
Each stand carries a standardized menu with a selection of flavors to choose from. There are the typical dessert crepes, such as this strawberry one here used in its marketing, or savory crepes for those without a sweet tooth. They make for a light mid-day meal, and are probably a hit with health conscious office goers.
To accompany its crepes, shops also serves “tapioca”, which is Japanese for bubble tea. The MOMI&TOY’S website gives us a glimpse of its delicious menu.
Best crepes in Japan? Possibly.Note that Yan pointed out that this is also the crepes that Minegishi Minami eats in a certain pseudo-voyeur episode of 600seconds so it’s most certainly AKB48 approved.
