Sukhumvit Soi 33 1/2 ...

Is right in the heart of Bangkok's Japanese expat residential area.

Bangkok has one of the highest Japanese expat populations on account of the car manufacturing industry here

The Japanese have also had undue influence over the bakery sector

Pretty much all Thai bakeries and bread preferences fall into the Japanese category

There's no crumbling crust here, it's all sweetness and light, puffy and cakey

I personally don't mind Japanese style bread, but it is necessary to throw out all your preconceived notions of what good bread is before you go and sample Japanese bakery delights.....I feel that this may be harder for some nationalities than others (especially the French)

There are a few notable exceptions however. The Japanese custard caramel is one.

This one bought at Custard Nakamura, was about as true to form as any French made cream caramel could be, the custard was creamy and not too sweet, the caramel was slighly bitter and coated the custard with the perfect consistency

We sampled some other stricly Japanese bakery items too including sakura choux pastry, japanese curry steamed bun and a weird teriayaki pork burger sandwich

we bought the piggy cup at a 50 baht shop selling all manner of useless and useful Japanese household items, also on Soi 33 1/2

    ahh yum. i also used to love the pannacottas from conveniance stores in Japan.

    curry donuts are delicious...
    choux cream are the bomb..

    do they sell those tontaksu breaded pork sandwiches, which are cold fried tonkatsu pork in a club sandwich (crustless white sliced bread) with a bit of lettuce and sauce and sometimes egg?
    Those are reaalllllll good. That is like one of the best ways to appreciate pork.
