Bento! #111: A snack

It's like a small oblong cake covered in a sweet powdery dip. I'll update this post once I find out what this is called. Yummy. As you know, though, this is not exactly tradional Japanese dish, and I say that because cake or bread (keeki / ケーキ, and pan / パン, respectively) are words that do not have a Nihongo equivalent. Of course, there's mochi, the Japanese rice cake, but by "cake," I meant cake as in cake, not as in rice cake. In the same way, in the Philippines, we have different kinds of rice cakes and rice-based desserts and snacks, but they are not cake as in cake.
