Shikawa in Ginza "High-class bread that sticks to water" 1 loaf 2 loaves / 864 yen (tax included)

There is only one type of "high-quality bread that sticks to water" in Ginza. At Shikawa in Ginza, we consider water to be one of the most important raw materials. Originally, alkaline ionized water is said to be unsuitable for making bread because it does not easily lead to yeast activity.

On the other hand, it is said that it has a high effect of bringing out the umami of the material, so Shikawa has repeated research in Ginza and uses originally developed alkaline ionized water with an increased pH value as the water to be charged. By doing so, the taste of the material is maximized, and the elegant sweetness and softness to the ears are realized, and the texture is smooth and moist like silk.

It is handed in a high-class paper bag that is reminiscent of the taste of a Ginza restaurant, so it is ideal as a gift for those who are indebted or a small reward for yourself.
