We had breakfast at Konparu on the under ground of JR Nagoya station.
Konparu is a kissaten expanding their business mainly in Nagoya city. There are 9 branches in the city now. Every 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.
Under ground 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.
But we wanted sandwiches that is our acquaintance’s recommendation.
And many guests ordered sandwiches.
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.
Deep fried shrimp sandwich
Deep fried shrimp sandwich (エビフライサンド, 930 yen) have three 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.
Cafe au lait
Drinks are normal size.Cafe au lait (カフェオレ, 400 yen).
Speaking of kissaten in Nagoya, Ogura (azuki) toast is very popular. Of course, Konparu have. I want to try next time.
