A la recherche du pain perdu. A Frenchy’s take on French toast

GOURMANDE in OSAKA


Pain perdu means lost bread. It’s about recycling stale bread. It’s poor people’s food. End of the month family meals.

But the world is getting so snob. People go to restaurants to have lost bread.So they eat what when they are at home ?

There are discussion about another overrated American food chain (pleonasm) that opened recently an ambitious (pretentious) breakfast joint in Shinjuku, Tokyo’s business district. The story is they ask 1200 to 1400 yen just for French toasts… that are totally ordinary. Usually, you’d get that for 350 yen. So what’s special ?
And some idiots have paid to go and check that only the price was special. Bravo ! Their reviews are fun to read.

Shokupan, Japanese bread. It’s very industrial stuff. It was on sale, stale. Perfect. A slice = 10 yen.

An egg, a little cream and a little vanilla sugar. Plus 10 yen.
