Everyone loves dessert, for most people it’s the highlight of every meal. The Japanese, in particular have a real affection for cute desserts. A great example of this is Sweet Box, a popular crepe store in the Shibuya district of Tokyo. Sweet Box Japanese crepes using the freshest ingredients available with crepe batter prepared daily in-store.
Unlike savoury crepes, Sweet Box Japanese crepes use fresh fruits smothered in cream and topped with ice cream wrapped in a cone of sweet crepe batter. Also they don’t serve it on a plate, it’s wrapped into a nice cone for easy transportation.
Sweet Box calls walking Takeshita St. whilst eating Japanese crepes Harajuku Style.
Everyone who buys Japanese crepes from Sweet Box eats it this way, basically because if you wait too long, the ice cream will melt.
HOW DOES SWEET BOX MAKE ITS CREPES?
First, they make the crepe batter. The crepe batter starts out as crispy, but turns soft and chewy.
Next, different fruits can be put into the crepe. Choose from fan favourites like strawberry, kiwi, banana, blueberry, custard cream and different kids of ice cream.
Sweet Box can make over 100 different combinations to find the Japanese crepe of your dreams.
The final step would be to assemble the Japanese crepe for serving: it wrapped nice and neat by hand and served to the customer with a flourish!
