Texas-Based Japanese Sando Pop-Up Headed to New Orleans

Super soft fluffy bread Japanese sandwiches are headed to New Orleans by way of Sandoitchi, a Texas-based pop-up. The Japanese Sando has popped up throughout Texas including in Houston and Austin as well as Los Angeles, and will be making its way to New Orleans next week!

Sandoitchi plan to offer a variety of Japanese sandos made on fluffy milk bread. Milk bread has an incredibly soft texture and was developed in Japan in the 20th century using tangzhong, a “warm flour-and-water paste traditionally used in China.”

Fillings for their sandos include egg salad, pork katsu, hot chicken katsu, and a fruit-filled version for $9 to $12 each. We are excited for the egg salad sando, pictured below.
