We had breakfast at Konparu (コンパル) on the underground of JR Nagoya station.
Konparu is a kissaten expanding their business mainly in Nagoya city. There are 9 branches in the city now. All sandwiches can be taken away.
They have started their business in 1947. Nagoya’s specific culture of kissaten is now well-known to us because there are lots of branches of Komeda coffee and Hoshino coffee that is Nagoya-style kissaten in Tokyo.
Underground area of Nagoya station is very difficult for strangers because it is like labyrinth. You’d better be there with map. Because we didn’t have map, we lost our way on the way to Konparu.
Many kissaten in Nagoya serve toast and boiled egg by free of charge if you order drinks in the morning. And the size of foods are large. Konparu, too.
But we wanted to eat sandwiches that is our acquaintance’s recommendation.
And many guests didn’t order valuable breakfast and order those sandwiches.
Speaking of bread in Nagoya, miso cutlet sandwiches and ogura toast is very popular. Konparu serve them, too.
Yummy foods that we had
Nagoya Cochin egg sandwith
Nagoya Cochin egg sandwich (名古屋コーチン玉子サンド, 630 yen). Four pieces of sandwiches were served. This is one of the most popular sandwich at Konparu.
Tamagoyaki was sandwiched. It is standard egg sandwich for Kansai area.
Worcester sauce was spread. It’s the Nagoya-style ! In Tokyo area, Worcester sauce is not common for sandwiches except cutlet sandwich. Unexpectedly it was delicious.
Ebifurai sandwich (エビフライサンド, 930 yen) have three ebifurai (deep fried shrimps) and much shredded cabbage. And the bread was baked.
So thick… Shredded cabbage dressed with mayonnaise, deep fried shrimp and fried egg. But delicious. Umm. The half of it is enough for me. It’s not suitable for breakfast.
Cafe au lait
Drinks are normal size.Cafe au lait (カフェオレ, 400 yen).
