Umakute Bikkuri.

I'm not sure what this is. The box says umakute bikkuri. All I know is that I waited 15 minutes in line for them and it was worth it.

I determined that they were pancakes filled with mung bean/azuki (red bean), with a roasted chestnut in the middle of each.

They were delicious, sweet, and warm, and drew a consistently long line. I picked them up at the lower level of Kyoto Station's vast food market. I had been trying to figure out what to eat and I think I made the right decision.

In Indonesia there is one almost like that and we call "kue pancong". They use pandan leaves for coloring and flavor. I tried to get the recipes from the vendor and how to make it but i was too scared to ask. But it was yummy and you still cannot find this here.
