For over 7 years, I still need to visit all corners of the city to find something "decent" in terms of flavor, texture, taste, flour used.
The bread - as we know it back home - is still locally "influenced" with tastes and twists to fit the pallet of the "gourmand" TWease.
So, I still buy my Sourdesem bread @ Flavorfield in Sogo 2, the real crunchy French Baguette in the basement of Mitsokoshi, the German pumpernickel @ Wendels, the pain-demi @ my local store, the Pain de Campagne @ the basement of Breeze , the raisin bread @ a store close to work.
The biggest thing which turns me of in calling things "bread-a-like" is the composition inside. Merely all Japanese fluffy making flour with no tast at all.
If people ask me @ home what I miss the most - I do admit - it is simple honest real bread.

Wife corrected me that I either buy these in the basement of Eslite also in Xinyi (there are 2 bread stores - one is on the underground walk-through and OK but the other one is in the basement itself. These Baguettes can be easily frozen in and reheated in an oven - smelling and tasting as freshly baked without the flour to become sticky)
And if around Yongkan street - corn Xinyi - that store also has terrific baguettes.
For French rolls ,- I go to a store near Ximending , but they are mostly sold-out when I pass
