  • Kyoto Neko Neko: Cat Shaped Desserts and Pastries Served at Kyoto’s New Bakery

    02.June.2020 | FOOD

    ALL HEARTS COMPANY, a Japanese company that develops bakeries and patisseries across Japan, opened its new bakery and confectionery shop Kyoto Neko Neko in Shijo, Kyoto on June 1, 2020. There, they are serving cat-shaped pastries and desserts including Kyoto-exclusive products from their Neko Neko Bread brand and Neko Neko Cheesecake shop.

    Kyoto Neko Neko Danish Bread: ¥1,200 (Before Tax)

    This butter-loaded Danish pastry is folded into a braid shape and baked which keeps the pastry moist. It’s topped with a sprinkling of sugar, leaving it glistening. It’s recommended that you first try the pastry as it is—soft and moist. You can then try lighting toasting it which gives it a crispy texture and brings out the delicious aroma of the butter.

    Products are packaged in a cute box making them a great gift idea.

    Kyoto Neko Neko Cheesecake (On sale from mid-June 2020)

    This cheesecake is made with Brie de Meaux cheese and is laced with black cocoa. The luxurious cheese combined with black soy beans and brown sugar syrup jelly makes for a marriage between Japanese and Western flavours. You get an extra layer of deliciousness too with a dusting of soy flour.

    Kyoto Neko Neko Bread (Plain): ¥550 (Before Tax)

    This Kyoto version of the Neko Neko Bread is still made without water, but rather than using only milk, Kyoto Neko Neko has added soy milk made using soy beans from a tofu shop in Kyoto, lending a smooth and rich flavour to the bread. And instead of mascarpone cheese, Kyoto Neko Neko uses soybean cream, and instead of dairy butter a soy cream butter.

    Kyoto Neko Neko Bread (Houjicha): ¥680 (Before Tax)

    Kyoto Neko Neko Bread (Matcha): ¥680 (Before Tax)

    There’s also a houjicha flavour made with houjicha tea and white chocolate, as well as a matcha flacvour combined with black soybean.
