The Ginza Kimuraya all-you-can-eat bread buffet is a style where a waiter brings a basket of bread to your seat; he or she explains the 8 or 9 types of bread in the basket, so tell him or her what you want and have him or her divide it on your plate.
The lineup for the day consisted of nine types of bread: croissant, walnut cheese, carrot bread, orange raisin, raisin stick, spinach bread, corn bread, bean bread, and white bread.
The walnut cheese is filled with walnuts & cheese, savory and flavorful.
Carrot bread is slightly sweet and has a nice firm crust. It has a rich taste with a hotel bread type dough.
The spinach bread is soft and chewy. The spinach bread is soft and chewy, with a slightly refreshing flavor and a hint of saltiness.
The white bread is a moist and chewy type, not the soft and fluffy type. It is simple and goes well with any dish.
The bean bread is filled with several kinds of beans. The sweetly seasoned beans give the bread a chewy texture.
The croissant is crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. The buttery flavor is not too heavy, and is just the way the Japanese like it.
The food is also of high quality. The beef stew is a luxurious looking dish with large cuts of beef. The lean part is full of umami, and the fatty part is tender. The vegetables are exquisitely cooked, and the texture and flavor can be enjoyed.
The soup is relatively dry, but the flavor is rich and thick. It is also perfect for dipping bread in.
The bread is all-you-can-eat, so you can never have enough, but there is also a soup and salad set (500 yen) and a drink set (400 yen). You may add more depending on the situation.
The Western-style grill is open from 10:30 to 21:00 (last order 20:00). All-you-can-eat bread is offered all hours, so it can be used as a late breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Peak lunch and dinner hours can be crowded, so if you don't want to wait, it may be easier to get in if you skip the line.
