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.

日本潮流教父藤原浩最近愛上一款日本出品Balmuda的多士神器,更在東京銀座特別開設利用這部神器烘烤多士的Café de Ropé。

據說這部烘烤麵包的專用焗爐在日本被冠以神器之名,因為備用非常創新的烘烤設計和烘烤效果。開爐之前,首先需要加5cc清水,而透過這樣在烘烤過程中,就會透過水槽原理,將水蒸氣平均地包裹着麵包表面,令所烘烤的麵包,會多了一分外脆內軟的口味。現在這個多士神器於日本售價大約為25,000日圓,最近更在香港掀起水貨熱,即使需要利用變壓器還有很多人依然願意付差不多港幣二千多入手,而在多倫多就可以在網上差不多的價錢買得到

如果想試試多士有多吸引就可以到位於銀座的Café de Ropé最具人氣的就是那一個餡料為醬油和紫菜的”Ace” Nori Toast,其次就是Shirase sand cake和日本大熱的水果奶油三文治。

除了甜味多士之外,Cafe還有提供鹹味選擇包括芝士多士、芝士咖喱多士和Whitebait白魚仔多士;另外咖啡還是利用Syphon壺來沖煮每一杯咖啡。店內咖啡來自於昭和46年創業的神田名店「珈琲専門店エース」,輕食則是昭和17年創業的浅草麵包屋「Pelican」

Cafe樓下就是潮人必到的潮流服裝店The PARK-ING Ginza。
