Rich and indulgent: Japanz Bakery

It doesn’t get much better than fresh quality-baked eats.

From sweet treats to savoury snacks and everything in between, bakeries deliver the goods to get your tastebuds excited.

As far as amazing bakeries go, you can’t go past Japanz Bakery at South City Shopping Centre. Operating in Christchurch for almost 20 years, they have mastered the art of perfect cream puffs.

Owned by Takuya and Makiko Iyoda, Takuya was born to be a baker, first working in his family’s cake shop in Japan before bringing his skills to Christchurch.

A crowd favourite are their delightfully fluffy cream puffs. They really are the crème de la crème of their offerings. “We have custard cream, chocolate cream, salted caramel cream and matcha-green tea cream,” Makiko says. “They’re light in texture and filled with our custard and whipped cream mixture. They’re so silky and smooth.”

Their extensive offerings also include an amazing range of pies boasting flaky layers and made with 100% New Zealand butter to give a rich taste, and filled doughnuts with house-made filling. Their custard creams are among the most popular, “The custard starts with cracking the eggs and separating them from the yolks. Our baker takes their time to achieve the best taste and texture,” they say.
