I do eat rice too, of course, but, I’ve been hunting on bakeries here. I love bread ( well, I love any food :p ) especially Japanese bread ♪
A photo from a cafe. Going to a cafe with dad for breakfast on weekend is my routine
Normally Japanese bread loaves are sold thickly cut. I love thick cut toast. And, Japanese bread sold at supermarkets are somehow much tastier than those here… (to me) There are many kinds, such as “chewy”, “double aged dough” etc I love the chewy one (もっちり)
Here is my another favorite bread “melon-pan”. You can buy it at most bakeries, supermarkets, convenience stores and other shops that sell bread in Japan. You can guess how popular this bread is.
Melon-pan contains two different dough – the base is normal bread dough (sweetened) and the top is cookie dough. It’s sweet bread and it tastes different depending on the bakery/brand. Personally I like the cookie-part to be very crusty. Some of them are pretty soft.
The reason why it’s called “melon-pan” is that the bread has patterns and it looks similar to a melon. There is a character in Japanese cartoon called “melon-pan-na chan” too .
