Painduce is a bread bakery in Hommachi, Osaka (the business district of Osaka). The name is apparently a combination of words, "le pain", French for bread & the English word "produce".
I've been wanting to try this bread bakery, but haven't been able to go. A friend (the same one who gave me the smoked salmon)said she is hooked on this place and gave me an assortment of breads! (Thank you!!)
From the top in clockwise order: croissant, melon pan made with earl grey tea, 2 cream pan.
Melon pan is said to resemble a melon (there is no actual melon in it), some say that the name comes from the "meringue" that is put on the top of the bread dough. "Pan" is the katakana version of the French word for bread, "pain", which came from the Portugese word for bread "pao".
Cream pan is a sweet roll dough filled with custard cream.
All were very good!
