Japanese Bread in NYC

On thursdays at the Rockefeller Center Greenmarket, Central bakery has a stand selling a large variety of different kinds of ready to eat bread as well as white bread and whole wheat loafs. I was most impressed by the, what I call, ready to eat breads because I dont usually see bakeries with such a variety like this.

One of the many things that I loved about living in Japan were the “panya” or bread shops. Japanese bread shops sell any kind of bread you can imagine and have a bunch of types of bread filled or topped with different ingredients from sweet custards to mayo and corn and even curry! There are a few Japanese panya in the city like Zaiya, Panya, and Takahachi Bakery. I just visited another bread shop the other day in Koreatown called Tous Les Jours which actually reminded me more of the Japanese bakeries that I saw in Japan.  I didn’t get to try the bread at Tous Les Jours but it looks great and I will definitely be back.  The interior of Tous Les Jours was also really beautiful with a lot of natural elements and use of wood.

But Central Bakery is an American owned bakery selling breads with a similar idea to Japanese bakeries. That is, that bread can be eaten as a quick breakfast or lunch and you don’t need to make a sandwich out of slices of bread, because all the ingredients like ham, cheese, and vegetables are already baked into the bread !  Stop by Rockefeller Center Greenmarket on a Thursday and check it out!
