Japanese Fish-Shaped Cakes

These fish are almost too cute to eat! “Taiyaki,” which translates to “baked sea bream” in Japanese, are fish cakes, made of a golden waffle-like shell filled with any number of fillings, from custard to chocolate to sweetened red azuki beans.

In the winter time, these snacks are popular at festivals as they keep you warm. And they’re said to bring you luck—the word for sea bream, “tai,” sounds a lot like “medetai,” which means happy or prosperous. Some people insist on eating them head first; others say the tail should be eaten first. Either way, taiyaki are a delicious snack!
