Please help identify this food

  • 2

Hello

I came across this ad for what I believe is a restaurant in the Asakusa subway station. The food displayed looks really tempting but I unfortunately didn't have time to try it out. Can anybody identify the dish and say if it is indeed an ad for a restaurant.

Entire ad:

Thanks very much in advance for your help

  1. I believe it's an ad for a shop that specializes in karinto, a fried dough snack.

      Thank you very much, Debbie. I was imaging something like meat and potato croquettes and never would have thought it was a sweet.
