Costco is known for featuring local products, and Tokyo is no exception! I hit GOLD when I discovered these Ginza Kimuraya Steam Cakes. It tasted like those my mom used to make me before school with that hint of vanilla, but the texture was a perfect mix of softness, fluffiness, and chewiness (sorry mom!).
There are 6 in a pack, which expires about a week after purchase. Mine lasted 3 days!
It bounces back perfectly when touched.
I heated it up in the microwave for 20 seconds and dunked it in warm milk. I’m off to search for the bakery!!
