| Food & Drink , Bread

Once Japan accepted bread, it starting figuring out its own things to throw inside and on top of it. Below are two simple classics, one largely unique to the Nagoya area in central Japan. They're easy to make, but tasty—so why not make them!

Croquette Sandwich

You can find croquette sandwiches (or korokke sando) in bread shops all over Japan. And if you're making croquettes, it's a great idea to save some extra for sandwiches the next day. All you need are some dinner rolls, Japanese mayonnaise, tonkatsu sauce and lettuce. Read on below for directions!

Ogura Toast

Ogura toast (小倉トースト) is a Nagoya specialty consisting of thick, toasted shokupan (white bread) topped with red bean paste (anko), butter and fresh whipped cream. There's not much to it, but it's tastier than you'd imagine! Check out the simple directions below—including how to get that whipped cream just right!
