Our taiyaki is a fish shaped cone that can be filled with soft serve ice cream or with other sweet fillings, then topped with delicious toppings. Taiyaki has been made popular in other states, and we’d love for our Albuquerque community to enjoy this fun dessert as well!
Neko Neko translates to “Cat Cat” in Japanese. We wanted a play on words and to have our consumers be the cats who enjoy their taiyaki fish desserts. Our dessert is very customizable and can be enjoyed by anyone.
It’s been a dream of ours to open our own business. We have our business background from our family’s restaurant experience. Our parents own the restaurant May Café for many years and seeing what they’ve accomplished this far along is inspiring. We are big foodies and love a diverse food scene. Being a part of the Sawmill Market means that we are contributing to a community-based concept that brings Albuquerque together through good food and company. We have been to many food halls and Sawmill Market is what Albuquerque/New Mexico needs. It’s an awesome hub for social gatherings and events. We are more than excited to be part of this project in growing our beautiful city. Albuquerque is in for a treat!
