There is never an end to how creative people can get when making cakes. This cake from Havaro cake shop in Tokyo Station is no exception. As a part of our trip in a Tokyo, my partner Phuong has been doing some research one unique food and snacks that you can only find in Tokyo. She came across Havaro's flower cake, which is a very popular cake that is a dome shaped jelly, with flower petals and fresh fruits being indulged in the jelly. We ordered the cream cheese strawberry cake. The base of this cake is cream cheese, which has a very light cheesy flavour, but also has a hint of sourness from fresh mandarin. This is not any normal cake in terms of the sponginess you would expect, as this is pretty much all jelly from top to bottom. But this has a very interesting combination of the jelly texture with the fresh fruits, cream cheeese, and what takes this to the next level are those flower petals which adds a deep ness in the freshness.
Havaro cake shop can be found inside the gigantic Tokyo Station, which is like a city within a city. Way beyond anyone's imagination of what a station should be: with huge shopping malls, eatery areas and even hotels. Havaro can be found at the stations Ichibangai, where you can find many other cake shops. Nearby these cake shops, you can also find an entire hall full of official anime shops from Pokemon, Hello Kitty, Ghibli Studios and Disney. It's a must visit station overall if you are visiting Tokyo, and the cake is a must try as well! They also sell single sizes in addition to whole size so if you're just in for a snack bite, they have that option too. But you have to hurry, as there is always a line at this cake shop so try to get there earlier than the late afternoon - before everyone finishes work.
