A new bakery in Kyoto

[2023] 13 new bakeries in Kyoto

We feature a new bakery in Kyoto where the owner is particular about the dough and ingredients. Many restaurants use ingredients that are good for the body, so it's great that people of all ages can enjoy their food on a daily basis. Why not try a variety of different types, such as arranged or standard types, and compare them?

1.You can make your own bread [Bakery Cafe Bread Class Nagomi] / Around Matsuo Taisha Shrine

Breads made from ingredients with unique aromas and flavors, such as rye, whole wheat flour, and black rice flour, are lined up in stores, and you'll want to try a variety of them. One of its characteristics is that most of the dough contains hot water, giving it a chewy texture. As the store name suggests, they also hold baking classes once a week, and even one person can participate. I want to make bread like this! Please feel free to consult Mr. Kato with any requests you may have.

The lineup includes items carried over from the previous store, as well as items with added arrangements, so it's an evolved version. For example, cheese bagels are basically made the same way, but the amount of cheese is increased to make them more filling, creating a satisfying dish.
