FOOD == (4.5/5) I would think of it as a mini Somi Somi since the size is just enough for me, a person who does eat too much sweets. VIBES == (3/5) Not too...

The food here is amazing. The matcha green tea ice cream is delicious and the taiyaki looks amazing. They do an... excellent job with their display as well. The only thing that is different is they don't take card, only Venmo or cash.read more

The taiyaki here is a work of art 😍🤤 Always freshly made with a delicately sweet crisp exterior and a... mouth-wateringly warm and chewy interior. Warm, almost savory matcha filling with the incredibly creamy black sesame or matcha ice cream is my favorite combo, but you really can’t go wrong with any of their options. They’ve somehow achieved *the* perfectly balanced dessert, the one I’ve dreamed of my whole life. We drive all the way from Redwood City on the regular for this masterpiece, and most of the time I can’t resist ordering a double order...immediately after eating an enormous dinner. One million stars 🌟read more

The nearest taiyaki ice cream shop in East San Jose. The outside of the taiyaki is crisp and the inside soft and chewy.... The matcha soft serve also doesn't taste artificially flavored. Cash only but you could also pay by Venmo. Support this local business ^o^vread more
