It's embarrassing to be a food writer without knowing the taste of the popular bakery that Chiba citizens are proud of, even though they grew up quickly by drinking the water of Chiba and breathing the air of Chiba! I went to scold myself, Peter Pan Ishigama Bread Studio (Funabashi City, Chiba Prefecture)!
The shop is open from 7am to 8pm. The author visited around 9 am, but the parking lot in front of me was almost full, and the store was already crowded with many customers. There is already a line at the cash register!
The author also hurriedly grabbed the tray and tongs and examined the bread lined up in a row. We have a wide variety of breads such as sweet breads, breads, side dish breads, sandwiches, and so on.
I was most worried about the abundance of types and the visuals that sprinkled around, but the result was "bacon and eggs" (237 yen), "Kouign-amann" (194 yen), and "genki-in melon bread" (140 yen). We have settled on four types of "long chorizo" (302 yen).
… And the line of sight that I feel out of nowhere on the way to the cash register. Suddenly, I found "Funassyi bread" (140 yen), which I could glimpse from behind the shelves! As expected, Funabashi City. When I noticed, I put one (?) On the tray and finished the checkout.
Now. At the Peter Pan Stone Oven Bread Studio, there are wooden tables and chairs on the terrace where you can eat the bread you bought. I also decided to eat on the terrace.
● Bacon and eggs
Bread with bacon and eggs as it is. Fashionable with a knife and fork ... Don't worry about it, it's okay to just bite into it! The fried egg is exquisitely soft-boiled, so it won't drip.
Pepper is an accent to the sweet and sour mayonnaise that gives the whole richness. This alone is perfect for breakfast, and it's a perfect dish to eat!
Kouign-amann is said to have been praised by Complicated SUMMERS. I'm sure Mr. Mimura of Summers, I've seen on TV recently saying that he's addicted to Kouign-amann. If Mr. Mimura praised it, it must be delicious!
You can enjoy the crispy caramelized and the crispy texture of the apples inside. Butter-rich, fragrant, sweet, crispy but moist ... What a luxurious finish, maximal satisfaction barometer.
● Genki melon bread
Genki-in melon bread is the most popular item in the store. The other day, it was introduced in "Suddenly! Golden Legend." Melon bread is usually crispy and hard on the outside, but Peter Pan's melon bread has a crispy texture but is moist and fluffy overall. The mellow scent of butter is irresistible!
It has a soft mouthfeel when chewed, and melts with the scent of butter as soon as it is chewed. You can see why it is so popular. There is also a box for souvenirs, so it looks good to bring a little!
● Long chorizo
Long bread, long chorizo that is 4 to 50 centimeters tall. The spicy chorizo is wrapped in bread dough and baked. I saw such a long bread and chorizo for the first time!
Chorizo is spicy afterwards, and it's so exciting that if you keep eating it for a long time, your mouth will heal! Also, the bread dough is a little hard and has a chewy texture. The menu says "also for snacks", but it surely goes well with beer and wine!
Funassyi bread is a sweet bread with plenty of yogurt and pear jam in a soft and fluffy dough. The leaf part is also reproduced properly. The face that looks like it was drawn in the corner of the notebook is full of charm.
When you eat a bite, the gentle sweetness and aroma of the pear spreads after the sweet and sour taste. The acidity is a little strong, so the back mouth is very refreshing. It seems that adults and children can enjoy it. Above all, it looks cute, so if you see it, be sure to put it on the tray.
If you buy bread at the store, you will get a free coffee service. When the weather is nice, you can enjoy freshly baked bread with coffee on the terrace while bathing in the warm sunlight. If not only Chiba residents but also people living outside the prefecture come to Chiba, why don't you come to the scent of freshly baked bread?
