German food discoveries in Japan
It was a delightful surprise to us to find German food now and then in Japan although the German compared to the Japanes cusine in general is not the most appreciated and sophisticated :D for now, we've found sweet and savory high-carb foods like bread and cake (yum!) to be popular here, especially Baumkuchen, a round cake that has many layers of dough resembling the rings of a tree trunk. In our opinion, the Japanese have mastered the art of making Baumkuchen, having a softer texture than the one we know from Germany which we actually prefer (although the chocolate covered versions from back home are a delight for us around Christmas time!).
