Sweet cream between soft buns at Omotesando's Anovan bakery

Special To The Japan Times

The quaint Anovan bakery, which opened last week, offers several varieties of fluffy French pasty bouchee — a custard-like flavored cream sandwiched between two soft buns.

The treats (¥300 each) are sold at the bakery’s Shibuya store (4-26-22 Jingumae, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo), a one-minute walk from Omotesando Hills.

Flavors include fromage, chocolate, green tea and strawberry (a highlight, as it’s loaded with chunks of real fruit). One pastry makes for a substantial snack, so if you need a sweet pick-me-up, swing by Anovan.

In line with COVID-19 guidelines, the government is strongly requesting that residents and visitors exercise caution if they choose to visit bars, restaurants, music venues and other public spaces.
