Have You Tried? Kinako French Toast

If you’re in London, I’m pretty sure you’ve come across this desert by now. If you haven’t? Well today must be your lucky day.  Say hello to the Naomi Campbell of desserts; a sticky, buttery, golden crusty edged goodness that is sure to send shivers down your spine. Head down to Shackfuyu, a Japanese fusion restaurant in Soho, and tuck into their Kinako French toast served with matcha green tea ice-cream. 😋           Yes, I actually took a lot of pictures of this dessert. Thank goodness the ice-cream didn’t melt. Haha If you’re looking for something savory, try their Kimchi and fried chicken nun out for size.
