tolo pan tokyo

Saturday, Satoshi went to Kamakura with his tour guide friends for the whole day.

I wanted to go on my own adventure, but it was also krazy hot outside, so I decided to make a "quick run" to Tolo Pan Tokyo since they open early and I could beat the crowds.

The last time I visited this bakery was pre-pandemic.

I picked up their carrot cake.

Unlike carrot cake that I know, this is quiche style, with a puff pastry base, which I thought they could do without because some parts were really hard probably from the caramel that is on the base of the puff pastry.

There were also some spices in there that I crunched on which wasn’t too pleasant.

Even though the cake was moist, I probably wouldn’t get this again.

Curry Pain…the bread was poofy and there were a couple of large pieces of beef in their spicy curry.

A little oily because it is fried but super tasty. 
Tuna Tolo Burger, this was the same thing I had back in 2019.

There was lots of tuna filling and this time the bun had grana padano in it…love!
Fluffy Doughnut.

The lady at the register asked if I was going to eat this right away.

She said, “if you are, I’ll top this with custard”

Since I was trying to be quick, I told her I was not.

So she minused 30 yen from the price.

The lady at the register also gave me this sample.

Because she had her mask on, I couldn’t understand what she was saying.

It smelled a little like pumpkin and had lots of citrus peel in it! Love!

I left a little after 8:30 and was back home by 10:30.

1540 yen (tax included) for everything.

It was blazing but at least I got to go on my own adventure and get home before the crowds started their day.

8:30-10:30 is the perfect time slot; I find that at 10:30 over here, the old folks do their shopping and boy are they slow to move along the aisle and they stop to chat with friends and block the flow of people!

I agree Rowena, I like to be heading home when I see the crowds coming towards me.

Take care.
