Leai (loo-eye) is a tiny bakery and cafe in the Tanimachi area of Osaka.

We recently tried some of their baked goods...their chicken & kinoko (mushroom) quiche was nice and flaky, and there was lots of shredded chicken and pieces of mushroom in it.

The kouign amann was buttery and had slices of apple in it too.

And the almond croissant was flaky with a nice ratio of almond custard in there too.

I wouldn't mind trying their lunch, I'll be back.

Ooooh...that kouign amann is reminding me of Bretagne again. So wish it wasn't so far away!

we are definitely lucky in Japan, Rowena, a lot of the Japanese bakers study in France and then come back to open up their own shops :)

Take care.
