Hattendo and Izumi Sake collaborate on limited-edition menu

As far as edible Japanese exports go, sake and cream buns rank close to the top. Combine the two, and you have the makings of one of summer’s sleeper hits.

The collaboration between Hattendo and Izumi Brewing, also known as Ontario Spring Water Sake Company, combines two iconic Japanese products into one trendy, tasty menu of treats.

Originally a confectionary founded in Mihara, Japan in 1933, Hattendo eventually developed into a store specializing in sweet buns filled with light, luscious custard. In 2019, Hattendo arrived in Toronto, bringing its luscious, cream-based offerings to Baldwin Street.

Launched on July 1, the special Sake series is Hattendo’s first local product collaboration and features an array of treats infused with Izumi sake and sake kasu. A by-product of sake brewing, sake kasu––or sake lees––is the aromatic and fruity sediment that remains once fermented rice mash has been pressed. It contains active yeast and beneficial enzymes and is commonly used in Japanese confections, snacks and beauty products.

There are four special items on the sake collab menu, beginning with two flavours of cream bun. The original cream bun is an updated version of Hattendo’s original custard cream bun, with sake kasu in the cream. The yuzu sake cream bun is made with original cream and added yuzu jelly.

Also on offer are an original sake kasu milk pudding and yuzu sake kasu milk pudding. Each one is made with sake kasu, which imparts a rich sake flavour, and glutinous rice.

The collaborative menu is available at all local Hattendo locations until July 31, so you’ll want to act fast to try these dainty, creamy, unique creations before they’re gone.
