I’ve been in Okayama for 10 years and I am still waiting for a good soul to open a banh mi shop. On my last trip to Tokyo, the Ebisu Banh Mi Bakery just happened to be located right next door to my hotel is Ebisu, so I could simply not resist.

Chat Orange: Banh Mi in Kurashiki

On my way back from the Bikan historical area of Kurashiki, I stumbled upon Chat Orange,  a tiny little shop selling banh mi, bagel and hot wine. The combination might be a little bit odd,however, I ordered a banh mi out of pure curiosity.
