Tasty Treats at Kevin’s Taiyaki

Kevin's TaiyakiLocation: 333 Dundas Street East, Mississauga (inside PAT Supermarket)
Website: None

Kevin’s Taiyaki is inside the PAT Supermarket in Mississauga, which is a pretty trippy place to visit.  It’s basically like stepping through a portal into South Korea.  When I went, every other person — both customer and employee — was Korean, and the only language I heard spoken was Korean.  PAT has a downtown location as well, but I’ve never quite had the same experience there.

I have a definite fondness for South Korea (I think it’s an underrated travel destination), so that was delightful.

Like the downtown PAT, there’s a location of Kevin’s Taiyaki right inside the supermarket, which specializes in red bean or custard filled pastries.

I got the red bean, and it was very, very good.  It was freshly made, with a nice crispy exterior, fluffy pastry (if you’ve never had taiyaki before, it’s extremely waffle-like), and a delicious red bean filling.  The red bean had a restrained level of sweetness and a chunky (but still smooth) texture that was extremely satisfying.

Taiyaki is one of those dishes that’s very simple and rarely bad, but difficult to do really well.  Kevin’s Taiyaki does it really well.
