Enjoying delicious Taiyaki with Japanese Tea

Meguro Hiiragi(Meguro, Tokyo)

In Meguro, Tokyo, Meguro Hiiragi is a popular shop that specializes in selling traditional Japanese sweets, with Taiyaki as its main attraction. This shop is an offshoot of the well-known Taiyaki shop “Taiyaki Hiiragi” in Ebisu. It has two branches near Gakugei-daigaku Station on the Tokyu Toyoko Line.

The first branch, Meguro Hiiragi Himonya Koen-dori Store, opened near Nishiguchi Shopping Street. The second branch, Meguro Hiiragi Gakugei-daigaku Higashi-Guchi Store, is located along the East Exit Shopping Street.

The Taiyaki from Meguro Hīragi is baked for over 30 minutes. The delightful combination of the crispy skin texture and the plumpness of the filling is simply irresistible. The filling is made with coarse red bean paste, offering a balanced level of sweetness. Despite their generous size, they’re so delicious that you could easily enjoy multiple.

While the Meguro Hiiragi Himonya Koen-dori Store mainly offers takeout, the Meguro Hiiragi Gakugei-daigaku Higashi-guchi Store provides a cafe space where you can leisurely savor their meticulously crafted Japanese tea menu alongside their renowned Taiyaki.

The Japanese tea menu was curated by the Japanese tea specialist store “TEA BUCKS” in Ebisu. They offer a diverse selection of uniquely flavorful teas, handpicked by the same store. The manager’s recommendation, the “Semi-Fermented Hojicha,” boasts a captivating aroma and pairs exceptionally well with the sweetness of the red bean filling. It promises an unparalleled pairing experience.
