Translating directly as ‘hat bread’, the boshi pan is a uniquely shaped sweet bread and a Kochi favorite. It’s said that this particular snack was created unintentionally, after a forgetful baker made a mistake while cooking the more commonly loved melon pan and the result was this: a delicious, fun to eat hat shaped bun. If you want to try it for yourself, head over to Rimberu near Horizume a popular café and bakery and boshi pan specialist located just down the road from Horizume Station. Visit between 7am and 6pm to get your hands on a bun or two.
