Find the best mini cream puffs this side of the Pacific Ocean at Yamazaki Bakery in Little Tokyo. There’s a new place in “West Little Tokyo” that claims to be the best “in the world”, and it wasn’t. But Yamazaki delivers the goods.
I like the mini size because the full sized ones that they have elsewhere are too much cream for my fat ass. And as my friend Unique (not her real name) says, “Cream coming out is always good!” No disagreements there. However, if you go there too late, sometimes they’re sold out. They also have a chocolate version but I prefer the regular ones for 75 cents.
They have a bakery on site so it’s not a wannabe retail outlet like some other places. The pastries were made fresh that morning. They also have bread, specially made cakes, and other weird pastries that you’ve probably only seen in Japan.
