Seabell Bakery, $2
Seabell is a small strip-mall bakery specializing in "Japanese style" breads. While the Japanese make and enjoy many types of bread, "Japanese style" usually indicates a matrix so light and fluffy that just looking at it makes you want to take a nap.
Seabell's eponymous roll is an exemplar of its type: the freshest, finest-grained hot dog bun imaginable, coiled around a core of real whipped cream and lightly sweetened red bean paste. Astringent matcha tea sprinkled on top and stirred into the cream gives the Seabell a little bite and backbone.
