Doraemon's Dorayaki @ 100 Doraemon Secret Gadgets Expo

HALAL | JAPANESE SNACKS / DESSERTS | VIVA HOME SHOPPING MALL

When people thought of Dorayaki, for sure they will link to Doraemon, unless you belongs to the much younger generation who only watch Pocoyo or Ben Ten! Dorayaki is a kind of Japanese pancake stuffed with red bean, and there are dorayaki which was filled with red bean ice cream too. Dorayaki is formed by two separate words: Dora, means gong (铜锣) and yaki means pan fried or grilled. Dora in Doraemon, however, does not mean "gong"-emon. It is just a pun adapted by this cartoon series created by Fujiko Fujio since year 1969.

Two weeks ago when I visited the Doraemon Secret Gadgets Expo at Viva Home, I did not missed the opportunity to try the Dorayaki. But before I reveal much let's look back to some of my Dorayaki experience, some years ago!
