Are you a passionate foodie searching for the ultimate cheese pull? If so, look no further than the Mega Don Quijote store in Shibuya and its ¥10-shaped bread!
This Japan-renowned discount store is famous for its vast collection of goods—including kitchen supplies, snacks, stationary, clothes, toiletries, cosmetics, and more—making it a popular spot for tourists and residents alike.
At Don Quijote’s Shibuya location, you can enjoy not only its impressive variety of goods, but also its fun-shaped, cheesy snack.
This treat is located on the first floor and, contrary to what it is modeled after, costs ¥500.
After you pay at the ticket machine, pass your stub to the employee, and watch them cook your treat right in front of you.
The worker begins by pouring the batter into a specially-designed, ¥10 coin-shaped griddle before topping it with a generous block of mozzarella cheese. They close it up and, after a few minutes, your snack is baked to perfection and ready to eat!
Before devouring the cute bread—which may be difficult given the intoxicating aromas of batter and cheese—be sure to snap a commemorative photo.
Then, it is time to enjoy! The high heat of the griddle produces a crispy exterior and leaves the inside soft—perfectly complimenting the stretchy cheese within. These contrasting textures paired with the savory filling and sweet batter make for an addicting bite. Plus, the cheese’s stretchiness creates a fun and social media-worthy eating experience.
Due to the treat’s popularity, you will likely need to wait in line; however, the queue moves quickly thanks to the fast cooking process.
If you are a fan of aesthetic, tasty, cheesy, and fun treats, you will not want to pass up on this ¥10-shaped bread!
