Vegan Bread at Tsuchikiri Bakery in Shizuoka City!

TSUCHIKIRI-2

I eat bread every morning, therefore I wish to something not only decent but very tasty for my first meal of the day!

TSUCHIKIRI-3

In Shizuoka City we are actually blessed with quite a few artisanal bakeries and Tsuchikiri Bakery is one of them, but you must be prepared to visit it at definite times as their bread will be sold out within a blink of the eye!

TSUCHIKIRI-4

Actually the bakery has moved only recently to its new address at a crossroads in Jyoto Cho, quite away from the busy Kitakaido Street!

TSUCHIKIRI-5

The place is run by ever smiling mother and daughter team who bake their bread twice a day and sell it at 10:00 and 13:30 From Tuesday to Saturday!
Since it is overwhelmingly popular customers can purchase only up 2 of each of the three kinds of bread on offer per person. As far as I know reservations are not accepted!

TSUCHIKIRI-6

Loaves on display will be cut into standard portions accordingly to order: whole. from 2 to 10 slices!

TSUCHIKIRI-7

The three types of loaves. Prices are for a standard portion!

TSUCHIKIRI-8

Raisins bread (not vegan), Plain bread (“yamagata”. Vegan!) and Three-cereal bread (Vegan!)!
Not cheap, I agree, but one of the healthiest bread in town! Industrial bread just does not compare!

TSUCHIKIRI-9

My choice of the day, which would be perfect for vegans who want their vegan bread made without eggs or dairy products: Job’s tears/Adlay (“hato mugi” in Japanese), rye and whole rice!
Moreover the yeast is natural!

TSUCHIKIRI-10

Your standard loaf one cut is packed and handed to you in a paper bag!

TSUCHIKIRI-11

Out of the bag!

TSUCHIKIRI-12

Bear in mind that such bread, being not made with eggs or dairy products, is very soft out of the oven.
I eat it the following morning plain or toasted!

TSUCHIKIRI-13

And if your standard loaf was cut first out of the main loaf you will get the yummy end as service!

Weird Japan 39: Baked Heart!

SN3O5049

Talk of half-baked jokes!
I discovered this I went out of Okitsu Station in Shimizu, Shizuoka City!

SN3O5050

Mind it seemed to be a decent enough bakery which goes as far as announcing the baking times of its various breads and cakes!
No wonder!
They probably meant “baked with a heart”! LOL

HIGHOCTANE/HAIOKU by Nick Itoh in Shizuoka City

Bakery & Cafe: Singe in Shizuoka City!

Service: Very friendly and smiling
Facilities & Equipment: Very clean overall. Superb toilets
Prices: reasonable
Strong points: Small range but Authentic and crispy breads, fancy breads, soft breads, and dessert breads. Shizuoka tea and vegetable soup available.

A friend of mine, knowing my love for the bread of my country advised me to visit Singe downtown as it was not only a superb bakery but also a very practical cafe.
So I went in its search yesterday!

The approach by the moat of Shizuoka Castle.

It is located by the very wall and moat of the Shizuoka Castle, making it also a stopover during a leisure walk!

No mistake in the French but why “Singe/Monkey”? I will ahve to ask next time as I’m pretty sure it has nothing to with the English word “singe”!

An unusually clear explanation of the opening hours (closed on Sundays)!

It is also clearly advertised not only as a bakery but as also as a cafe opened all day long!

They have just celebrated their first Anniversary!

The Japanese pennants attract the eye from far!

It says, “freshly baked bread cafe”!

Interesting seating for couples! Almost secret!

I came during the afternoon just before the last batch, so there was not too much on the shelves, but the quality was really top class and the design so cute!

Of course you can take your purchase out but the cafe offers really reasonably priced drinks and soup!
I can guarantee you that a lot of people including some from the neighboring offices come here for lunch!

If you come on your own I suggest you take a seat at the counter with a view on the moat of Shizuoka Castle!

But couples will love the seats inside the small alcove!

What’s more, you can have a peek inside the workshop and ovens!

This is what I ordered!
I must admit that I got hungry upon seeing all the breads!

Potatoes, mushrooms, bacon and cheese sauce in real crispy/crunchy French bread!

I really loved that small pie with eggplants, tomato and minced pork stew!

And that small Italian-style closed pizza made up for the right lunch combination!

And local Shizuoka green tea!
A must for the locals and tourists!

To be continued as I’m planning to buy bread to take back home….
