Hysteric Jam.. Best Japanese Crepes in Kobe

Japanese crepe is a must for tourists when visiting Japan. In Tokyo, I think Harajuku is the place for it. Well, today, I will be telling you about the place to get one of the to-die-for Japanese Crepes in Kobe.

So, if you have never tried Japanese crepes before, imagine fluffy pancake-like crepe filled with fresh cream, ice-cream, cakes and fresh fruits.

The shop I’m talking about is called Hysteric Jam. It’s located in the heart of Kobe, around the Motomachi area.

What I love most about this shop is the menu. They offer such a wide range of crepes ranging from savoury to sweet. Ham, tuna, banana chocolate, strawberry, blueberry cheesecake, you name it, they’ve got it!

Also, in front of the shop, there is a huge window showcasing different types of crepes, so even if you don’t speak or read Japanese, you can still order the crepe you want.

The menu I tried is called Crème brûlée crepe. The crepe is filled with fresh cream and custard cream, and burnt caramel on top. I’m telling you, it’s the best Japanese crepe I’ve ever tasted, and I didn’t really like Japanese crepe before eating this one. I mean I’m all for the French crepe filled with banana and nutella, but ‘thinner’ pancake that is called crepe here in Japan, I didn’t get it at all.. well, until I met Hysteric Jam that is. Crème brûlée crepe is creamy, rich, and sweet(but not too sweet if you know what I mean) filled with flavours from the eggs and cream from the custard. The fresh cream helps to tone down the sweetness. If you’ve got a sweet tooth like me, I recommend you to try one from the premium crepes line (flavours include: creme brulee, rum raisin, tiramisu, green tea tiramisu).

The Crème brûlée crepe costs 530 yen (US$4-5). You can also get something cheaper around 500 yen (US$4-ish).

The store only offers take out, but they do provide tables(sadly no chairs) in front of the store.

If you’re planning to go to Nankin-machi (Kobe Chinatown), do give Hysteric Jam a try! You won’t be disappointed.
