Kurumi : 胡桃

k-chan's mum came over from japan for a bit of post-surgery support.
within her never-ending bag of goodies was some walnut (胡桃 : kurumi) treats from patisserie hanaoka; a local store in her hometown.

(くるみの初恋 : kurumi no hatsukoi)

each of these delicate bite-size walnut infused meringues are made by hand daily.
kurumi no hatsukoi was first created 31 years ago and is still going strong today.
1 bag : 450 yen

(胡桃の醍醐味 : kurumi no daigomi)

another bite-sized morsel is this creamy cheese cake with a delicious walnut biscuit base.
1 piece : 150 yen

nothing beats a yummy cheesecake, some freshly brewed coffee and good conversation!

it really is yummy cheese cake (so it should be for 150 yen a pop!)
and yup, the simplicity of japanese design always does it for me too.
there is just no need to "go over the top" is there!

i'm a sucker for sweets, especially those from japan! lately i find non-japanese sweets too sweet for me.
these kurumi ones are just perfect!

thanks for the kind words. k-chan is doing much better now thanks.
