Neko Neko Shokupan

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
If conventional square-shaped shokupan doesn't get you excited, then maybe this adorable cat-shaped version will change your mind. The kawaii loaves are made from a mixture of domestic wheat flour, cream, honey, and plenty of fresh milk which makes this bread so moist and fluffy. There are four types of shokupan loaves to choose from: plain, chocolate, azuki (red bean) and cheese, plus additional seasonal flavours depending on the time of year.
While a loaf of the plain version costs ¥450 (plus tax), the other three variations come in at ¥680 (plus tax) per loaf, but we think its unique shape is worth the price as it makes for some pretty picture purr-fect toast.
