Where to find pumpkin pie in Fukuoka? 2017/10/30 10:54
Hey does anyone know where you can find Pumpkin Pie in Fukuoka?
Around this time of year back home there is pumpkin pie everywhere, and I'd like to get some, but I'm not sure if it even exists here. If any one knows of any stores, please let me know.

Thanks for the replies.

@biwakoman
Have you ever tried it?
It doesn't look like any pumpkin pie I've seen in North America. I have to go to Hakata Station so I guess I could take a look.

@frog1954
Thanks for the link, but that is limited October 1st to 31st, so it is already too late.

I am sorry for the outdated information. I googled and found the information and and 十六区 (Juurokku, named after The 16th arrondissement of Paris) is one of the most popular patisseries in Fukuoka. If you are living in Fukuoka and love sweats, you might like it.

Pumpkin in general is very popular ingredient of sweats also in Japan, and most Japanese know the concept of pumpkin pie (pumpkin paste wrapped with pie sheet), so you will be able to find some kind of "pumpkin pie" in many patisseries and bakeries. Maybe it is not so common as compared to the USA, but I believe you can find it somewhere.

Oh I am sorry I have not tried it made at that shop.

I like an apple pie better than a pumpkin one.

If you will have chance to come to Kyoto, try the following pie.
I love it.

Have you tried asking at American food restaurants or even depa-chika (department basements)? They may not have some on their regular menu, but shopkeepers are often willing to give you advise if you ask, even if it means secretly recommending rival establishments. For one thing, if many people ask, patissiers will know that there is demand.

Here is a list of American food restaurants in Fukuoka.

Or you can make your own by shopping at Foreign Buyer's Club.

I know there are tons of pumpkin sweets all around Japan, but they're not exactly the same as American pies. I used to find that Anna Miller's pies were quite authentic, but now notice that they only have one branch in Japan, which is far from Fukuoka. Hope you find your piece.

You can get canned pumpkin puree/paste at Kaldi Coffee and at the regular Japanese grocery store frozen pie crust along with condensed milk, and its not that hard to make.

COSTCO

@LEO (guest) Costco only sells pumpkin pie for a short limited time before Halloween, they used to have pumpkin pie available for before Thanksgiving but switched to having it for Halloween/October instead. Also handmade pumpkin pie made by canned pumpkin tastes way better than the pre-made Costco one which this year tasted really bland. The cans of pumpkin paste is available at Kaldi Coffee all year around like the person above mentioned, and you only need a few ingredients to make the pie like the person above also mentioned, it is very easy to make and you can do that any time of the year unlike the Costco one which is not even available outside of Halloween time.
