Japanese Snack Pancakes in HK?
The other day as I was taking in the sights in Hong Kong, walking from Causeway Bay to Central, I came across a shop selling prepackaged Japanese pancake snacks (I think they are called dorayaki) -- basically, a better version of a Twinkie (for those who know what Twinkies are). The pancakes came with lots of different fillings to choose from. The one I had with strawberry-and-cream filling was delicious.
I'm wondering whether anyone might know where that shop is. (It may even be a branch of a chain.) I tried to find it today, but can't remember exactly where it was. I do remember it was in a mini-mall either in one of the plazas or off of a walkway between plazas; and I'm pretty sure it was above ground level. I think the name of the shop was something(Japanese word)-Street.
It shoud be "Sakura Street (桜みち)".
There are two locations in HK and
the shop you saw should be the one in Admiralty:
Shop A3, 1/F, Queensway Plaza, 93 Queensway, Admiralty
Shop L004, G/F, Jusco, Kornhill Plaza South, 2 Kornhill Road, Tai Koo Shing

Thanks, kosmose7. You're right. I was just about to post that I had gone back and found the shop was at Queensway Plaza.
I tried 3 other flavors today: "dorayaki 8," macchi cream 8, and pear & honey mascarpone. I didn't like any of them. But I also had some more fresh strawberry with custard, which tasted as good as the other day.
Also, perhaps I shouldn't have called them "prepackaged" snacks. They are fresh: you can see one of the shop staff in a little room behind the display case cooking them.
