You wouldn’t use the word “crunchy” when you describe cream puffs, would you? But for “Croquant Chou” from Kinotoya in Sapporo, Hokkaido, you definitely will. Freshly baked puff mixed with crushed almond holds rich custard cream inside. It’s crunchy outside and creamy inside. “Kinotoya” also has stores in Shinjuku and Harajuku in Tokyo.
