Lanka, Cake Shop in London
Lanka is a cake shop that sells Japanese style cakes/French cakes in Primrose Hill and Finchley Road in London.
The shops are run by gourmet chef Masayuki Hara, originally from Japan and is a specialist in French and modern British cuisine. The cakes have a Japanese twist, with green tea included. The shop at Finchley Road is nicely presented and looks super clean with a minimal style.
As soon as I walked in I noticed the staff were Japanese, who spoke both Japanese and English in the shop..depending on the customer.
and then the cakes :D:D:D:D:D:D!!
They looked so delicious and they weren’t too expensive. Some of the items I had no idea what they were, but my gf had seen them in Japan so we ordered two cakes each.
I of course had to buy a macaroon as well , which was really nice.

All of them tasted nice, but the Strawberry Cake was the best .
