Japanese Egg Sandwich • Tamago Sando


If you ever visit japan, one of the things that you will notice is that there are tons of vending machines, everywhere! But the next thing is the amount of convenience stores aka Konbini and these are not your regular kind, these jewels of awesomeness are small, everywhere and have a ton of things, they are amazing, the only bad thing is that they are a bit more expensive than a regular supermarket… well you cant have it all, after 2 days in Japan you will start recognizing FamilyMart, Seven Eleven or Lawson ;D

So one of the things that they have is a wide selection of sandwiches, with all kinds of fillings, including fruit (maybe ill share that recipe one of these days hehehe), but one classic sandwich is the tamago (tamago means egg in japanese) or egg sandwich, this seems like a basic sandwich but its far from it, its not complicated to make but its amazingly ingenious and delicious.

So the egg filling is basically a mixture of really well mashed boiled eggs with a seasoned mayo mixed with chunks of boiled egg on fluffy Japanese white bread, so you kinda get… the best of both worlds, very creamy delicious mashed eggs but with chucks of egg for additional texture, its perfection and its one of those things i eat when i get into Japan… yeah right on the airport a egg sandwich and a cool bottle of green tea ;D Lets check the recipe!

Classic Japanese Konbini sandwich, the tamago sando is an amazing egg sandwich, simple to make and always delicious!


  • Bread – 4 slices (White Bread Crustless)
  • Eggs – 4 boiled
  • Mayonnaise – 5 Soup Spoons (Japanese Kewpie Mayonnaise)
  • Vinegar – 1 Teaspoon
  • Pepper – A Pinch
  • Salt – A Pinch


  1. Boil the eggs, take care that you want these well cooked but not super dry, so around 6 to 7 minutes is the perfect time for a normal fully cooked egg.
  2. Peel the eggs and crush them in a bowl, add the mayonnaise, vinegar, salt and pepper, create a paste.
  3. Spread half of the paste on one half of the bread, add another half and you’re done, repeat until you have two sandwiches, normally these are cut in rectangles, enjoy!
Notes: Sometimes people add a bit of minced onions for added texture and spiciness, also like any sandwich you can ajust it to your taste! ;D
