Many of us who grew up reading or watching the old school Japanese anime Doraemon would be familiar with dorayaki, the earless robotic cat from future’s favorite snack. However, I am sure that most of you noobs have never saw one in real life, less tasted it. Hence when I got to know that the Sun Moulin Bakery in Isetan KLCC carries the snack, I just had to try it.
robotic cat’s favorite snack
The snack costs RM 2.40 a piece, and true to what the comic depicts, is served cold. Dorayaki is basically Japan’s answer to the familiar chinese red bean pao, with two layers of soft pancake is used to sandwich the paste together. Overall the taste was pretty good, though it takes a little getting used to having red bean paste cold, which made the texture a little harder than what I am familiar with.
If you are/were a fan of Doraemon, you gotta try this. Sun Moulin also serves some of the best breads and sponge cakes, though the price is generally slightly higher than average. On the other hand, if your childhood is associated with Sponge Bob and Powerpuff Girls, you are probably too young to read some of the entries here, go do your homework already!
As a bonus, here is the link to Doraemon theme song lyrics, in Japanese romanji with English translation too!
