Since I was a kid I loved this dessert. It was a snack after piano lessons I looked forward to.
Called Taiyaki 鯛焼き, (lit. ‘baked sea bream’) is a Japanese fish-shaped cake. The most common filling is red bean paste that is made from sweetened azuki beans.
It is a classic street vendor snack in Japan and that warmth you hold in your hands of freshly baked taiyaki is indescribable!
Although traditionally eaten freshly baked, if you’re in Japan and feel like a cold dessert, head to the nearest 711 to find the cold version. It tastes super good. The white dough is slightly chewy and the custard inside is just super! Each are sold individually wrapped. I’ve attached the screenshot from 711 Japan for you.

Note 711 photo not for the challenge! Thanks 😊
