Kobeya Kitchen hops into Easter

by Patrick St. Michel

The Kobeya Kitchen chain of bakeries found mostly around major train stations is celebrating Easter with a limited-edition treat in the form of a dessert shaped like a rabbit (¥238).

It isn’t the most photogenic bunny you’ve ever seen, but as a sweet snack it works wonders. This baked critter comes in two varieties — a regular custard flavor and one stuffed with chocolate custard — and the crisp exterior paired with a gooey middle makes for just the right texture overall.

Get hopping before Sunday rolls around if you want this long-eared item.
