People think of Marion Crepe as Harajuku's staple but Com Crepe is the hottest crepe spot in Harajuku right now! I've been wanted to try this and I finally got to go for this blog!! YAY! 

There are many choice on the menu but make sure to order the best of the best, Creme Brûlée crepe (one in the picture).  Rich custard is filled full to the top in the crepe and the top is of course burnt just as creme brûlée.  It's divine.  You MUST eat this.

Totti Candy Factory's giant rainbow cotton candy is all over the instagram so you might have already seen it.  In this store, you can also get other colorful candies and cute sweets.  Cotton candy is HUGE and 2 of us can barely finish it. If you are eating alone, maybe you should try 3 color cotton candy which is smaller than rainbow.

3. Beard Papa

Beard Papa has been around since 1999 and is still as good as ever. I have been in love since I was teenager! 

Their extra light cream puff is filled with a cream mixed of whipped and custard which has a strong vanilla flavor.  They fill it out after they take orders so outside is crisp and never saggy.  To me, it is kind of like Krispy Kreme original donuts which I can eat dozen by my self - SO ADDICTING!

Good new for you who live in the U.S. or Canada!  You can find Beard Papa in mane asian cities or international district in those 2 countries. (I was so happy when I found it in Fullerton when I used to live around there.)

Calbee is one of the largest snack makers in Japan.  In this store, you can try fresh fried potato chips with different flavors as well as fresh-made Jagariko which is one of the most popular snacks they make.

We tried several things but to us Jagariko was the best out of all. It was like fried potato with a great flavor.

Harajuku Sweets

ZAKUZAKU sells crispy cream puff like sweets. ZAKUZAKU describes a sound of chunky crispness in Japanese so that probably gives you a hint, right? Their ice cream is really good too but if you are only trying one thing, try the original menu in the picture. The cream inside is extremely light and goes perfect with the extra crispy croquant chou.

6. Kanazawa Ice

harajuku sweets street food

Alrihgt. So, this store might change your world because they sell ice creams that do not melt up to 40℃! Kanazawa University has invented this crazy ice ream with the secret of 'strawberry poluphenol'. At first, we didn't believe it so we actually did a test by leaving the ice cream outside for 20 minutes (outside temperature as 28℃). Yes, it was true. IT DIDN'T MELT! You must watch how it turned out in our video but it just got a bit softer. You would have thought it has some kind of chemical in it, right? It is all natural, baby!
