japanese bakery anywhere in Zurich?

Anyone who's never tried Japanese style bakeries really should - even the regular bread is light and fluffy and, well, unswiss. Cream puffs

Except probably not in Switzerland because there aren't any. Or are there? I didn't see any in the Nishi micro-market

Re: japanese bakery anywhere in Zurich?

There is an auhentic Japanese bakery in Adliswil. From Zurich HB take the S4 to Sood-Oberleimbach. It's to the left, then across the street in the shopping center on the right. I can't remember the name right now...

This looked like one of those kitschy Japanese tea rooms with a touch of French élégance and refinement that abound in Tokyo. I was searching for information about the owners and expected to come across Japanese names, but was surprised to discover that it seems to be an entirely Swiss venture. Have you been to that café, Mrs Nanda?

Re: japanese bakery anywhere in Zurich?

way long ago back in the day of the Samuri, I tried a pastry from a bakery in the town where I was living in Japan.

It was my first. it looked deceptively rich and sweet.

I took one bite

...and spit it out.

bleh

It wasn't sweet at all!!!!!

No, Not Mrs.

No, I've never been there. A friend brought me back a piece of cake once and it looked amazing.

On their website: "Eine Kombination aus Café, Tearoom und Pâtisserie-Boutique, in dem das Japanische auf französisches Flair trifft. Ein kleines Schlaraffenland – handgemacht und delikat."

From their website, it doesn't seem very Japanese except for some of the presentation and the use of matcha.

Re: japanese bakery anywhere in Zurich?

When I was in Japan I went into a bakery and bought something that looked very much like a "choci-brötli". I was so excited until I took a mouthful and discovered it was beanpaste....yuck!!!!

I've been and would highly recommend it. The biscuits are to die for. It's all quite expensive, of course, but the food and cakes are delicious. Can't say how Japanese they are.
