Dorayaki is similar to a tiny pancake, except there is a rich red bean paste filling inside each one. It is a very popular dessert in Japan, and it offers a sweet and delicious flavor that you’re sure to love.

To be honest, I was a little hesitant trying one of these. I had never tried sweet bean paste before. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. The beans are sweet, but a little savory at the same time. The addition of the tiny pancakes (that's just what I call them) make for a surprisingly balanced melding of flavors and textures. Only problem is, being diabetic, I can't eat a whole one in one sitting :( It may not taste too too sweet, but there's actually a lot of sugar in one of those little things. That won't keep me away from them though xD

Just as the description says, it's like 2 mini pancakes with sweet bean in the sandwiched in the middle. The cake is light and fluffy with just enough sweetness to be good on it's own, but biting into the middle portion with the bean filling is just fantastic.
The filling has some whole beans in it to add that little bit of extra something to it. They aren't too sweet together either, a mild sweetness that is just enough to make you want more and more.
Definitely going to order more of these, without a doubt.
