Takahachi Bakery

Takahachi’s long been on my radar, but I finally was able to grab some goodies with DLS before our dinner at Wu Liang Ye, to be enjoyed afterwards.

For $1, I picked up a container of black sesame croutons. I think they just use leftover black sesame bread that they haven’t been able to sell and cut it for croutons – that’s perfectly fine by me, I really enjoyed the crunch of these and the subtle black sesame flavor.

DLS chose a green tea macaron, which boasted lots of green tea flavor but lacked the crisp crack of the shell that I so desire in macarons.

My black sesame macaron was the same – great in terms of flavor, but not the best macaron ever.

It probably isn’t clear, but I love black sesame and was excited to pick up black sesame coronets. The exterior was fluffy, slightly sweet much like the bread in many ‘baos’ found in Chinese bakeries, while the black sesame paste/cream inside was wonderfully flavored. Perhaps a bit too much of the cream for the amount of pastry, but I enjoyed it in any case – perfect breakfast time treat with a cup of tea!
