A visit to Japan is incomplete without trying out the splendid food there. I brought back fond memories of my gastronomical experiences from my vacation and thanks to my love for cooking, I recreated some of the dishes I tried there and loved. Japanese strawberry sandwich or strawberry sandos or fruit sandos (as it is called there) is one of the most popular and loved breakfast foods there. In fact, as soon as the strawberry season starts, you can spot this simple meal being sold everywhere - from departmental stores to roadside eateries to plush restaurants. The sandwich looks so pretty that it'll catch your eye from a distance. Even if one won't buy it, it would probably be prepared in their kitchen!
You can't have Japanese strawberry sandwich and then forget about it. That's what happened with me; its taste lingered on my mind till I blew off the steam by making it back home. Surprisingly, it was super easy to make. So, here I am sharing the recipe with you and insisting you to give it a try.
