Pain D'artisan Nicolas

060210 025060210 027
Nicolas is an unusual bakery which used to be this shabby and ugly little shop with no air-conditioning and dauntingly far from the city, yet it managed to attract fans from all over the country. I have visited a few times before, thanks to friends with cars. Now it has moved from the very obscure location to an American-ish mall, still not any closer to Tokyo. And to my mild disgust, the shop is right next to a massive supermarket, which has its own bakery too...

060210 043Used to be takeout only, but now they have a few tables and you can order drinks from the counter. The croissant, teriyaki chicken bread with mustard, and cheese bread were all freshly baked and still hot, which made us grateful for the eat-in space. Bought loads to take home too.
Past entry here.

きゃ~~~~一番並んだし、一番高いし、友達も「ここ有名だよ」って言ってたから、間違いなくと思ったのに、、、、ショック、、、
でも、ランチの時に鯖寿司が出て、それがとっても美味しかったから、まあいいか、、、

「いづう」はワタクシもあまり好みぢゃあないです。
よって 数年食べてないので、鯖の厚みは不明です・・
錦の「伊予叉」の方がシットリしてて好み!
また次の機会に~

京都から戻ってきたよ~。
お詫びです。
伊勢丹の鯖寿司、湯さんから聞いて気になって、
自分用に買っちゃいました、、、^^;;;
名前は聞いてなかったから、
「いづう」を買ったけど、同じかしら?
確かに高い!!
美味しかったけど、私にはちょっと酸っぱいかな。
サバはちょっと薄いけど、こんなもん?

I was cutting down on bread...but it was a looooong trip and seemed like a waste if I didn't buy any.....excuse? ^^;;
It really felt like US! There are no sandwiches or soup or other stuff, only coffee and tea to go with the bread. Better to take home than eating there...the coffee is no good anyway.
The mall is sort of in the middle of nowhere and very far...I guess it is convenient for people living there...

Hey I thought you're cutting on breads...^^; These photos are so strangely dejavu..looked like..LA!!! ^^;;; All those cars in a mini-mall looking place. And the bakery counter...feel like a fast food joint? Must be combine of those floor tiles, bold red & white and font of the logo. ^^;;
