Famous Imagawayaki in Taichung, with both authentic and creative fillings. Visited here after seeing the picture of their taro with salty egg yolk flavor. There are 2 shops, one is near Taichung station, another one is next to Splendor Hotel Taichung. I went there right after they opened, so I didn’t wait for too long.
I saw many people chose “buy 8 get 1 free”, I couldn’t eat 9 at once, I bought 3. The staffs don’t help customers to cut the wheel cake, buy you can ask them to give you chop board and knife.
菜脯 Taiwanese pickles 20NT
Authentic Taiwanese flavor, milder than I expected, savory fillings with sweet surface, not the best pickles flavor but still not bad.
泡菜起司 Kimchi and cheese 25NT
Their kimchi with cheese is tasty, not too salty with adequate sourness and sweetness, it’s not spicy too.
鹹蛋黃芋頭 Taro with salty egg yolk 35NT
Dense and smooth taro paste, with pleasant taro fragrance and salty egg yolk. It’s their creative fillings but this combination has the flavor of authentic taro puff pastry, delicious.
