  • Japanese omelet is the main filling! Comparing egg sandwiches at cafés in Kyoto

KYOTO

Taking big bites of addictive Japanese –style sandwiches

[ Café Amazon ] at Shichijo is already crowded with customers on both the first and the second floors as soon as they open in the morning. Among the menu, “Wafu toast (Japanese-style sandwiches)” is the one I choose. Their sandwiches are the king of Japanese-style sandwiches; consisting of dashi maki tamago (Japanese rolled omelet), laver, and dried bonito shavings with browned toasts. It has a rich taste but at the same time it’s light. The mouth fills with the savory taste of ingredients.

I’m addicted to this combination of the ingredients, which is the big surprised that there wasn’t before. I ate up quickly. It’s not common at cafés but Wi-Fi is available here, so it might be a good idea to try these sandwiches before staring your Kyoto trip.

PICKED OUT MENU ITEM
Wafu toast ¥600

KYOTO

Sweet melting taste in your mouth

[ Yamamoto Café ] is located along Shirakawa River at Gion. It is crowded with regular customers and tourists from the early morning. You can’t miss their “Yaki tamago sandwiches” here.
This menu item is available from the morning. During the breakfast special hours, combo menu with a drink and a salad is available (JPY 780). Freshly fried atsuyaki tamago (Japanese sweet omelet) is very soft, and it’s a good combination with the fresh taste of cucumber! Also, it’s a perfect marriage with coffee. You’ll be surprise how the flavors melt in your mouth.
There are famous temples such as Chion-in at a nearby site. It is recommended to try their sandwiches before your Kyoto tour.

KYOTO

A new style egg sandwich at old café

[ Kiridoshi Shinshindo ] is a venerable café located on the next street from Shijodori. This shop, loved by geiko (geisha from Kyoto) and maiko (apprentice geiko) of the neighborhood since they have opened, has various specials such as sandwiches and jello.

They sandwich egg between slices of toasts. It seems like a simple egg sandwich but they also layer sliced cucumbers on top of the egg and it becomes “Jo tamago toast (a special egg sandwich)”! You’re gonna get hooked on the combination of the fluffy texture of egg and crunchy texture of cucumber. Also, “Ui-kyu (sausage and cucumber)” is a popular menu item as well.

PICKED OUT MENU ITEM
Coffee ¥450
Jo tamago toast ¥330

Kiridoshi Shinshindo
254 Gionmachi-kitagawa, Higashiyama-ku, Kyoto
Hours: 10:00am – 6:00pm (Café 16:30 last call) / Closed on Mondays
