All about convenience—here’s where you can order bread via delivery in Shanghai.

If you’re like me, you end up shopping at your neighborhood bakery out of convenience. The same goes for all your other groceries needs. But things have changed since the start of this year, and more of us are ordering our groceries online.

Enter MediterraneaN Bakery, a recent addition to the pool of delivery-friendly grocers.

Founded in Shanghai in 2002, MediterraneaN Bakery is a family-owned wholesale and retail bakery. The family has Jewish roots and has been baking bread since 1942. You’ve probably never heard of MediterraneaN Bakery, but that’s because they’ve been on the supply side of things, providing restaurants and cafes with baked goods. They then started delivery in March 2020.

MediterraneaN Bakery is known for their affordable selection of baked goods, especially for the pita breads, laffa bread, and bagels. They also have burger buns (we’re in the thick of barbecue season), sourdough loaves, halla bread, breakfast pastries, and desserts.

Here’s what on offer and what you can make with the breads that isn’t just butter on toast.

The loaf is massive! The sourdough is great for soaking up soups and sauces, like for example, with a shakshouka. You can also freeze the loaf and toast for the next meal.

Or you can make a pappa al pomodoro, a Tuscan bread soup with left over bread, tomatoes, garlic and basil.

Halla (¥30/loaf) or Challah bread is another iconic bread in Jewish cuisine. It’s usually braided and typically eaten on ceremonial occasions. It’s a soft, fluffy, egg-enriched loaf.

Halla is great for sandwiches, with cold cuts, or with the aforementioned shakshouka.

Laffa (¥12/2 pieces) is an Israeli flatbread. It’s softer, chewier, and thicker than a pita, and is great for making wraps. Pictured here with meatballs, tzatziki sauce, feta cheese, lettuce and pickled shallots.
