Degirmen – Turkish bakery near Ikebukuro Station
This bakery sells both Japanese and Turkish bread. The Turkish bread marked with (Turkish flag mark) is Halal. You can enjoy Turkish bread filled with cheese, chicken meat, beef meat or just plain ones. They have sweet buns and cookies as well! Baklava, plain “Achuma” and chicken meat filled “Poacha” are my favorites. Bread lovers like me should try it!
