Have you seen these adorable fish-shaped cones yet? If not, chances are you’ll see them popping up all over your Instagram feed after today’s grand opening of Taiyaki NYC in Chinatown, a much-needed addition to the few taiyaki ice cream shops in the city.

Taiyaki is a thin, fish-shaped cake that is traditionally filled with sweet azuki red bean paste at Japanese street fairs and festivals. At Taiyaki NYC, you can pick from flavors like Matcha Better, a taiyaki with red bean filling, matcha ice cream, mochi, matcha powder, strawberries and a wafer, or customize your own by picking fillings and toppings like graham cracker crumbs and chocolate powder.

Though taiyaki has been popping up all over the world, we couldn’t be more excited to have this sweet treat, er, swim into our own backyard. As far as over-the-top ice cream creations go, we’d say this one is a must-try.


Everything is better in pairs. ���� #taiyakinyc - Check out the brand new ice cream shop @taiyakinyc opening tomorrow in Manhattan Chinatown. The black sesame is my favorite, and the people running the place are as cool as the yummy ice cream they sell! ����� - Pictured: (Left to Right): Matcha Better - matcha ice cream, red bean filling, mochi, matcha powder, strawberries, wafer.
