Japanese Hontou pancake

The Japanese Hontou pancake stall usually has a line of at least six people deep on Friday nights at the Chinatown markets.

Luckily I have a uni break in the afternoon when the stalls are just setting up and decided to bite the bullet and purchase one.

They come in custard, chocolate, green tea and I think cheese? They cost two dollars each or three for $5. I'm a big fan of green tea so decided to try that flavour:

I was actually  a bit disappointed. The filling wasn't very sweet and the green tea flavour was more bitter matcha than anything else. The outside was also a bit dry and reminded me of Emperor's puffs.
