    The straight outta Japan has a delicious swirl of black sesame and matcha ice cream with mochi, red bean paste and a chocolate wafer. The cone is a taiyaki cake! Served warm and delicious.

    Best dessert in NYC. Homemade green tea icecream artfully adorning a warm one of a kind fish waffle cone filled with red bean. The sprinkled mochi on top takes this delight to the next level.

    What's better than soft serve? Soft serve in a fish mouth! In this case, a warm cake with custard serves at the cone and makes for a delightful treat!

    Taiyaki has croyaki now stuffed with your choice of bean paste or custard. Custard was delicious and the croyaki was flavorful

    I'm pretty sure I died and went to heaven! I built my own: custard filled cone, green tea ice cream, and mochi candy. AMAZING. I'm in lOVE with the cone, its soft and doughy and tastes like a pastry!

    Literally everything on their menu is golden. Try the straight out of japan for the authentic dessert experience that made this place so popular.

    You obviously come here for the taiyaki (the fish shaped cone/cake). Instead of the normal sweetened red bean filling, they fill it with ice cream flavor(s) of your choice :)

    You pick the ice cream (matcha sesame obvss), filling, 2 toppings and drizzle for $7. Plus an adorable photo worth grammin' 👍🏼

    My goal was to try the Souffle pancakes they make but I didn't know its only served from 11am to 2pm. So I ended up ordering the strawberry and mango with coconut flakes. It was amazing!

    The matcha sesame soft serve ice cream on taiyaki is simply amazing. Don't forget to eat the whole fish. It has a sweet azuki red bean inside.

    The souffle pancakes are super fun! They're a bit eggy, and I wouldn't come back just for them, but they're so photogenic (and the wait is an experience in and of itself). Overall, worth it!

    Green tea and sesame soft served ice cream in a Japanese fish-shaped cake. Straight Outta Japan($7) would be a good choice. $10 minimum for credit card payment.

    Line moves pretty quickly! The soft serve is really yummy. Portions are large - you might even be able to share! Not much filling in the actual taiyaki, but still great!

    You must try the straight from Japan. This place does not sell the warm filled taiyaki, but the ice cream filling versions instead. It is great place and worth the visit.

    Ice cream goals. Delicious soft serve, snack on a wafer and mochi and you still have a taiyaki cake for your happy ending 😋

    Worth the hype. Get passed the horde of IGers and enjoy a delicious treat (matcha and black sesame is legit)

    Green tea ice cream and latte were good, fish with red bean was good but they got my first order wrong. Check before you leave to make sure they got it right 🙄🙄🙄

    $7 a pop...but pretty darn good soft serve!! Better than big gay imo. Fishcone has a little custard at the very tip.

    overhyped on taste, but great for Instagram. Also prepare to be aggressive to get a seat because it's tiny

    Very good... Loved the Straight Outta Japan -- matcha / black sesame swirl, Mochi, red beans... But $7 for this thing is a bit overpriced IMO.

    Important! Tilt your camera only ... or you’ll quickly discover you’ve lost your ice cream to the ground.

    Fish. Custard. Azuki. Ice cream. Ingredients for a winning recipe, almost worth the price asked for.
