Menchi Katsu Sando

You may have seen some in the refrigerated deli section at your local Japanese market, but this beauty was made to order at Izakaya Sakura.

A deep fried minced meat patty and some fresh veggies between toasted Shokupan spread with butter and mustard. Sakura's great Demi Glace sauce on the side.

Massive, a bit messy, but very very tasty. All I would ever want when craving a Yoshoku lunch maybe.

I'm sad to say though that Sakura has recently taken this off the menu due to the high labor involved (the switch from the Corn Potage to Miso soup shown was already an early sign I guess). But knowing how the place is, the Menchi Katsu Sandwich may just as easily show up one day as it did go away. If it ever returns I'll be the first to let you know.. :)

akira would gobble this up, minus the veggies. sadly, kai is allergic to milk, so no bread, no butter.

Hi J! So double buttered bread for Akira and all the veggies to Kai?! :)
