Shigepan and calling bread by human names

In a building that is connected to the building where our magic bar is, a small bakery has opened. This bakery is open until 4 in the morning, and they serve bread that is delicious. They also name their products after people. So they do not have "chocolate chip bread", they have "Satomi" (a girl's name in Japanese) etc. I am told they name the bread after the person who suggested this bread be made.

This place is making my "let's lose some weight" plan harder than anticipated.


  1. Nu måste du ju genast föreslå något riktigt smarrigt, så dom får något att sälja som heter Jonas.. :-) T.ex Chokladbollar?? :-)

    1. Ja, det vore ju kul att ha ett bröd döpt efter sig. De bakar inte saker i stil med chokladbollar, så det kan nog bli svårt. De har också redan en massa bra varianter, så jag har inga konkreta förslag för tillfället.
