Egg roll sandwich at 7-evelen

tamago salad

You can find a 7-eleven convenience store almost anywhere in Japan. But do you know they have a good selection of sandwich snacks and sweets? They are not so expensive but the quality is very high. We would like to recommend their Egg Salad roll sandwich when you want something light to bite. It is just over 100 yen, 120 yen + tax to be precise. The egg mayonnaise is very soft and creamy, the volume of the filling is quite generous, and the roll bread is very soft and light. It is just a right portion for a snack: definitely a healthier snack than a chocolate bar or potato […]
