momiji bakery

Was near Minoo station the other week doing some errands and checked out Momiji Bakery to pick up something for lunch.

I've past this place a couple of times but they were always closed. Luckily on this particular day they were open.

I picked up their hot dog which was wrapped in French bread. The bread was nice and chewy and the weiner had a nice snap.

There was also some grainy mustard inside. I also ate it with a splash of Tabasco and some ketchup.

Another item I tried was their Yuzu (Citron) & Lemon danish.

Flaky and filled with yuzu and lemon jam.

Their prices are pretty reasonable too. For both items I paid 320 yen (about US$3.20)...I'll be back.

Momiji Bakery (UPDATE:2013 this shop is no longer in business)

Minoo, Osaka
Phone: 072.721.1139
Open 9:00-18:00 unless they sell out before, Closed Wednesdays & Sundays

p.s. Nate wanted to know how the cilantro he gave me was doing. I planted 7 seeds and they are all doing fine. About 2 inches tall. I cover the pot at night with plastic so that they don't get any frost. If the day will be sunny then I remove the plastic and let the pot soak up the sun. I think next month I will bring the pot indoors.

Hi Kat - I have a strange attraction to pastry wrapped hot dogs..... everytime I see one I want to buy it.

That cilantro is looking good, and love the sound of that hot dog (mmm, love nice and chewy hot dog buns) and danish. :)

Also, that's so cool about your homemade Kahlua! I gotta look into that :)

I'm amazed at your cilantro. Gonna try growing some again but indoors. Oxtail soup weather is here and I like tons of cilantro in my soup.

Love this herb although we call it coriander. Tasty nonetheless :)

Try making pesto using this instead of basil ... YUMMILICIOUS!

K and S said...

pesto with coriander/cilantro sounds delicious R&B :)

Take care.
