Last Sunday, while melting over my delectable cup of coffee at Bear Pond, I was staring out of the window and noticed a cute doughnut shop right across the street. I made a beeline for it as soon as I polished my macchiato, eager to try one of those little treats I had heard so much about.
Hara Donuts hail from the city of Kobe (in my beloved Kansai), and they are combining tofu and soy milk in the batter. I know this may sound like an odd mix, but it really is scrumptious, and not to mention 'healthy'. When is the last time you had a healthy doughnut??
They have an assortment of flavours, ranging from mocha to tomato, but I picked the regular one, as I was too excited to look through the different kinds. I enjoyed my doughnut while walking back to my house on a coffee buzz, and it was the end of a perfect Shimokitazawa afternoon.
