Sure, Japan is heaven for Wonder Bread fans. I guess in my exhaustive searches for decent bread (I'm a fan of German style braunbrot or just about anything crusty and preferably made with sourdough) I've found some fairly decent choices in various little shops, so I work them into my excursions and stop in when I'm nearby. Then I buy a few at once and put them in the freezer, which works fine if you end up toasting the bread anyway. Again, location is definitely a factor.gonbechan wrote:For sure you can find loaves of spongy white bread at small bakeries.
One can also find mediocre baguettes but for the most part, if one wants more than that it is usually easier and cheaper (and tastier) to bake one's own.
Costco doesn't even figure into my thinking about food. Despite being an American, it's just not the type of shopping I do, or ever have done.gonbechan wrote: Of course you can get bread from Costco, but not all of us have easy access, so I am talking about the average shopping destination.
Also, to be honest, I don't find Costco's bread that good.
True enough. I point you in the direction of Mr Paradoxbox, I seem to remember he was throwing down some seriously nice looking ciabattas!Zasso Nouka wrote: They are but it still seems difficult to get a proper Ciabatta, Baguette or Focaccia.
