Balmuda toast cafe in Ginza to experience how good it can be

Japanese designer\musician\producer Hiroshi Fujiwara recently has an obsession over a steam toaster, and opened up a cafe in Ginza serving his favourite toasts that are made from this toaster.

This Balmuda toaster is priced at about 25,000 yen in Japan, and is now making a big hit in Hong Kong, though you need a transformer for its output power, Hong Kongers are still willing to pay over HKD$2,000.  And currently you can also purchase this toaster online in Toronto.

According to different taste tests, toasts made from this toaster are crispy and crunchy on the outside while keeping in between soft and fluffy.  To operate this toaster is similar to using a steam toaster, you will need to first add about 5cc water, and the bread remains certain moisture level from the steam while toasting.

Café de Ropé at Ginza serves several kinds of Balmuda toasts, that includes their signature soy sauce seaweed “Ace” Nori Toast, and two sweets Shirase sand cake and the popular Japanese sandwich with fresh fruits and cream.

The cafe also serves savoury toasts like cheese, cheese curry and Whitebait toast.  Coffee and bread serve at the cafe are from artisan shops from Kanda and Asakusa’s Baker Pelican.

Below the cafe is a clothing shop The PARK-ING Ginza.
