〈Eat-in Corner〉

Japanese Beef Sukiyaki & Egg Sandwich: 1,080 yen per pack

These egg sandwiches might be a bit different from the ones you see at Japanese convenience stores. Instead of egg mayonnaise salad, Japanese-style omelet is sandwiched inside. A very good match of Japanese beef deeply simmered with sweet-salty sukiyaki sauce and Japanese egg omelet.
