More often than not, simple things are the best things. Take for example the humble egg salad sandwich. Sure, texture-wise we don’t have much going on here, especially if you go with Japanese style milk bread. But the flavors are at the same time rich and refreshing. It’s the perfect breakfast, lunch or dinner. And it’s cute. Very cute.
In Japan and in other Asian cities, it’s easy and delicious to pop into a convenience store to grab a pre-packaged sandwich for a dollar or two. In the U.S., it’s more within the realm of trendy restaurants and upscale cafés that sell the same thing on a nice plate for five times as much.
A lot of places sell egg sandos these days (they also sell katsu sandos, but we’ll save that for another day). One such place that nearly broke the food internet is Konbi. And seeing as I am thousands of miles away from Konbi, I figured it’s time I suck it up and make myself a sandwich.
