The Japanese are the creators of nikuman, the world's cutest sandwich, which consists of a candied, spongy flour wrapped around gingered meats and vegetables. At Diho Bakery, nikuman-type sandwiches are elevated to an art form on a par with calligraphy. The taro, in particular, is a pleasant surprise-not your tiki party's dull, watery poi paste, but instead a jam waiting to be copyrighted by See's.
