Japanese tea time in Madrid: Panda

We are all very familiar with sushi as a main Japanese dish, but Japan’s gastronomy is so much more than that!! In fact, in Japan, they love sweet things, their sweets even compete against some of the best and most acclaimed French patisseries in the world every two years in the famous Coupe du Monde de Patisserie.

In Madrid, there is only one place where you can taste Japanese pastries, its name is Panda, open from Monday to Sunday (during tea time schedule) from 17.00h to 20.00h.
I also advise you to watch this wonderful Japanese film called “AN” by film director: Naomi Kawase. It is very inspiring, you’ll learn about the technique and delicacy, Japanese people apply to everything they do, especially regarding Doriyakis (Little pancakes filled with bean paste), a dish comparable to our Spanish churros.
In Panda, apart from offering: doriyakis, mochis and macarrons filled with exotic flavours like lichy or cherry tree, you’ll also find a broad range of organic Japanese teas.

I am sure you are thinking, but where can I find such an amazing place? The answer is simple: the only Japanese tavern were no sushi is found, Hattori Hanzo.
