Yesterday, in the early morning, we were jolted awake by a teeny earthquake. I am normally a light sleeper so I normally hear and feel these things, but Satoshi is a deep sleeper, so he usually doesn't hear or feel anything.
I was surprised that he felt the earthquake. I actually heard it work its way up the street, it didn't last very long but still scared us.
Anyway, do you like kim chee?
I think I love it.
I must, I have about 20 posts tagged with the word "kim chee" and about 60 posts with the mention of it.
Anyway, I was surfing the web and came across something that piqued my attention.
Kim chee sandwich. Have I piqued your attention too? I hope so...
The best part? They are made near our shopping arcade.
The weather was rainy yesterday, not really fun weather to go out for groceries, but we needed some fruit, and I needed something for lunch, so I walked to our shopping arcade and decided to check out the shop that makes the kim chee sandwiches.
Tougarashiya is a tiny shop located a minute or two from the West Exit of the Hankyu Ishibashi station. By the way, tougarashi is chili and ya is shop, so in essence the name is the chili shop.
They sell kim chee, chijimi (pajeon) as well as a kim chee nori maki (which I think is kim bap and will have to check out on my next trip there!)
Everything is reasonably priced too.
The sandwich comes in two sizes, small and large. I bought the small...350 yen (about US$3.50). By the way, the large is 600 yen (about US$6)
I watched as the lady made the sandwich and it is so easy to make! Lots of kim chee, a layer of scrambled egg, sliced cucumber, mayo & bread.
I gasped when I saw her squirt about a tablespoon of mayo on both slices of bread AND the egg.
And then was sad when I saw her cut off all the crusts.
It was a little messy to eat, but was really delicious. I also had it with some leftover 4 bean salad.
I am re-creating this sandwich soon and eating them with the crusts.
It's Friday here, hope you have a great weekend!
