Japanese Pastries

Evan | Mar 7, 2005 03:04 PM

Does anyone know of a resource online where I can get descriptions of Japanese pastries? The reason I ask is there is a Japanese bakery near my office with all sorts of wonderful looking (and the few I've sampled, wonderful tasting) pastries and other desserts. The problem is I don't know what half of them are just by looking at it and the place is always too crowded to ask for a descriptions. They sell things like cream biscuits, Curry Pan, An Doughnuts, Piroshiki. Short of spending $100 to try everything in the place, can someone guide me to a resource or give me some descriptions of some of the basic Japanese pastries and desserts? Thanks.
