Dear Food Diary:
As if Panda donuts weren’t a cuteness overload all in itself, the amount of Panda sweets & eats all around Ueno Zoo is countless. From panda bread loafs, cakes, cookies to rice balls and even panda iced hot chocolate.
If you’re in love with these cuddly cuties as I am, this one’s for you…
At the Ecute Ueno where the Panda donuts were found, I also saw these:
Cakes in all shapes and sizes. Some way cuter than others.
Savory Pandas too. Rice balls and sandwich pockets.
Next to the cafe, there’s even a little shop all dedicated to panda danish!
Inside the Ueno Park, the cafe is a nice rest stop after the zoo and musems. Specially if you’re not into Japanese traditional sweets.
At the other end of the park, as you exit, you’ll find a Lotteria burger joint in a food court building and right next to it, a bakery that has amongst other Panda goodies, this loaf of bread with chocolate.
Hope you’ve enjoyed this Panda-licious post as I have.
As I’m writting this post, Animal Planet Japan is having a special feature on Pandas. What a cute coincidence.
