What we love…
- Bakeries in Tokyo are not hard to come by, it seems that every corner you turn, and every department store you enter you find a beautiful counter covered in delicate breads and pastry—but few are as good as the French Bakery Viron.
- This bakery creates their French pastries and breads from the finest imported flour from France call retrodor. This flour is the key ingredient in most of of the award winning baguettes that come out of France, and Viron is the only bakery in Tokyo that is allowed to carry it.
- Tokyo does a lot of food really, really well, however sandwiches are not really their strong suit. While most of us revel in the opportunity to eat sushi, ramen, tempura, and even octopus balls for a few weeks, sometimes you just crave a carb-o-licious sandwich, and for those times make your way to Viron.
- Upstairs you'll find the brasserie serving all your favorite Paris lunch time dishes such as steak frites, nicoise salad, and croque madame.
- Don't miss the croissants, they are also made from the same French flour and as rave-worthy as the baguettes. The almond is by far our favorite, and is one of the most popular items on the menu for a reason.
- The aroma of baked goods is strong even from the street, and once your inside the overflowing display cases of sandwiches and pretty French pastry will hypnotize you. Just be prepared for a line up because you aren't the only one that's craving a little taste of France.
