“DOU” – the ‘dorayaki’ specialists


Dorayaki is a classic Japanese confection that comes in the form of a pancake filled with sweet red bean. DOU’s best-selling item on its menu is a twist on dorayaki, having more of a light texture to it similar to that of the sponge cake in the West. They separate the egg yolk and egg whites and whisk them individually before using a steaming method on site to make the product fluffy and give it a divine flavour. The ingredients they use are what give the overall flavour an exquisite balance. DOU uses velvety, melt-in-the-mouth fresh cream straight from Hokkaido, high quality  ‘Miyabi’ adzuki beans which are cooked to perfection to create a gorgeous fragrance, and ‘gyūhi’ (a softer kind of mochi) that is made from mochi rice called “Hakuchomochi” that is cultivated in Hokkaido.
