Cocohodo opened recently inside Zion Market. I had been really curious about this cafe for months, mainly because of my sweet tooth. I’ve never visited any of the other locations, so I didn’t really know what to expect.
I had imagined a cafe selling various walnut pastries. However, it’s actually just one pastry. They also offer a limited drink menu.
Since it’s in the grand opening period, they were giving out plenty of samples.
The walnut pastry is quite cute, shaped like an actual walnut. The outside is a pancake-like batter and the inside is a red bean filling with walnut pieces. It reminds me of the Chinese red bean pancakes sold as street food or Japanese taiyaki (the fish shaped red bean pancakes).
These would make great gifts though I’m surprised the store can survive when it only sells one main item.
