Fish-shaped cake, taiyaki!

Hi, everyone. Today, I had taiyaki, Fish-shaped cake at my tea time. Taiyaki is pretty popular in Japan. The taste is not anything related to fish. The classic taiyaki is fish-shaped pancake stuffed with bean jam. So, it is just a sweet cake. The outside pancake is brown and sweet been past inside is dark gray for the classic taiyaki. But, taiyaki is evolving with times. New staffing came out, something like chocolate, or custard. And now white taiyaki is in fashion! The one I had today was that the white outside was a kind of rice cake, and custard was filled inside. It was so good!! I enjoyed with sencha, which I brewed with high temperature water (about 90C) to bring out rich bitterness. Have a nice day!
