Some delicious savory danishes from local Tokyo bakeries! Top is cheesy mentaiko (spicy pollock roe), burdock root, and lotus root; bottom is cheesy edamame and corn. Both very tasty, but edamame is a little more filling and less heavy, plus has better crispy cheese wings.

I mentioned in class that I wanted to learn to make melon pan. My professor told me her friend said they're pretty hard to make... so...
Not hard. Time consuming and if I was in Japan, I'd just hit up a bakery or konbini. Fairly happy with my first try.

今 気になっている“ ちくわパン＂
ルーツを辿ると 北海道 札幌のパン屋さんとの事
細長く伸ばしたパン生地を クルクル巻き，ふっくら発酵後 こんがりと焼き上げました。
ツナマヨとちくわが パンとマッチして 美味しい‼︎
ボリューム感もあり すっかり ハマってしまいました。

I like walnuts and melon bread separately.
Together they are a hot mess

The giant turtle melon-pan has been received (just the next day from mailing!) and so I can release the pics I took!!!🐢📸
It was about 10inches wide before I stuffed it. Here it is with my small turtle, and plus-size me (no need to see my face ya). This giant turtle weighed almost 400gms 😲. Very huggable cushion size 🤔
Thank you for trusting me to make this for you! 😬
It couldn't really fit in my photobox so pics lighting a bit meh :p

Lovely breakfast danish from St Germaine: cheesy mentaiko (spicy cod roe) with burdock root and lotus root. Not listed but of course mayo too. Great texture, nice flavor, happy morning.

Croissants Du Tokyo, 1740 Artesia Blvd, Gardena, CA 90248
Located inside Tokyo Central’s food court, Croissants Du Tokyo bakes on site. The selection is limited (about a dozen types of croissants & buns, loaves of bread, a case of krone) and items tend to sell out, so it’s best to go early. Coffee is available as well. On weekends, the $1 krones are replaced by $1 cream puffs. A krone features a pie crust cone with a creamy filling (custard, chocolate or matcha). Cute signs feature English and Japanese.
Power of Azuki ($1.48): Classic baked red bean bun, thin shell with poppyseeds, lots of sweetened slightly chunky red bean paste. The paste was pretty sweet but the nuttiness of the seeds helped cut through the sweetness. Can’t complain for the price. It looked like a textbook red bean bun.
Baked curry pan ($2.60): Small, soft thin baked bun with crumbs on the outside and a tiny bit of Japanese veggie curry inside (with potatoes and carrots). Good but the bun was mostly empty.
Plain croissant ($1.80): Pretty good with layers, a bit of crispiness and a softer interior. For under $2, it’s a steal. If it were more expensive, I’d want more layers and more butter.
The baked goods were very good – not the best ever but very reasonably priced and fresh.
4 out of 5 stars.

まりこが紹介してくれた大阪の有名なあんぱんを食べてみた。確かに美味しい！店名も住所も覚えていないので、すいません、、、 Mariko showed me a very popular red bean paste bread shop in Osaka, so I tried one. Quite good! Would recommend but I do not remember where it was...

Okayama Kobo Bakery & Cafe, 155 W Center Street Promenade, Anaheim, CA 92805, Score: 42/50
Okayama Kobo Bakery, which has a location in Japan, opened in Anaheim last December. They make their baked goods with 100% Hokkaido flour. The Japanese flour gives their pastries and bread a lighter texture. The bread is handmade, additive and preservative free, and baked fresh daily.
Food: 4/5 – It’s not my favorite Japanese bakery but the pastries are good. I recommend the salt & butter rolls – the light, airy quality of the dough is evident and the crust has a light crunch. They have baked donuts, French toast, sweet and savory buns, croissants, and sandwiches.
Coffee: 4/5 – I didn’t have any but they have espresso drinks. They use Groundwork Organic coffee which is local and decent. I like the imported Kimino Yuzu soda – it’s like lemonade and not that sweet.
Wi-fi: 5/5 – Free, secure, unlimited. Ask for the password.
Ambiance: 5/5 – Super adorable in a Japanese way. Look for the giant hanging baguette outside the shop. They worked with a local artist to come up with adorable mugs and stickers.
Noise: 5/5 – The music was calming. Customers were quiet.
Plugs: 3/5 – There are a few outlets
Parking: 4/5 – Two hour free parking in the parking structure with validation. Free 90 minute street parking if you can find it.
Comfort: 3/5 – The metal stools aren’t comfortable and the tables are pretty small.
Bathroom: 4/5 – One restroom, nicely decorated
Art: 5/5 – They collaborate with artists.
Tips: They also own the beer place, so you can sit in there too (it’s connected to the bakery). Prices are surprisingly reasonable.

In conbini news, here are two breads that did not need to exist! My husband brought them both home, but declined to try either one, which, okay, fine, I guess. They are called: プレックロ Preccro, and ふわもちフランス（クッキー＆クリーム）Fluffy Doughy Furansu (Cookies & Cream).
Preccro is a portmanteau of pretzel and croissant. Furansu/France, as a bread name, would refer to a baguette-like texture, I guess. All told, I would say that only one out of these three concepts is even somewhat represented here. Which one? The answer might surprise you!
First up, the Preccro. Maybe I'm biased because I am mystified by the reasoning behind combining a croissant (buttery, flaky and airy, layered) with a soft pretzel (sourdough, density, thiccc). I'm not even sure what a successful Preccro would look like!
But what we have here is a slightly doughier croissant with sesame seeds on the outside. It tastes fine, but if I hadn't known it was meant to be a pretzel hybrid, I would've assumed the doughiness was a bug, not a feature—a natural consequence of buying a croissant at the convenience store.
Second, the Cookies & Cream France! Which was not a baguette at all; it was basically a fluffy sandwich roll with crushed oreo filling. I was not remotely excited about this, but honestly it was fine! The filling got all gooey when I toasted it, which was nice. Don't personally need to get it again, but it's kind of like a weird Nutella.
