Juchheim - HK

If you've been reading my blog entries since the beginning, you'll know that I have an obsession with Baumkuchen. I was super excited to see Juchheim (the original Japanese Baumkuchen maker) in the basement of Causeway Bay's Sogo store.

I was so excited to try it!

Boy was I disappointed when I tried it. Instead of the firmer texture of the Japanese baumkuchen that I was expecting, it was spongy and tasted very similar to the sweet butter pound cake that's so popular in Hong Kong. I found it plain and flavourless compared to the Japanese versions. Fail...

Overall: Don't bother trying this Juchheim in Hong Kong unless you want a sponge cake rather than baumkuchen.
