(not quite a) Year in Japan

Miscellaneous Food Pics #8: Konbini Bread Edition

Scroll down to content

So Konbinis (convenience stores) are great, I’ve alluded to this in previous posts, but you can do so many things there – which I’ll probably talk about in a later post. Today though, konbini food, specifically bread (because I could spend a year making posts about konbini food alone).

1. Yakisoba roll (たっぷり焼きそばロール)

Ok…I’ll say it.

Worms in a bun.

That’s what it looks like right?

Well thankfully it’s not that – it’s yakisoba (stir-fried buckwheat noodles + sauce + veggies) in a bun. I feel like the bun adds nothing here other than being an edible bowl, which I’m totally fine with.

2. Curry Bread (ビーフカレーパン)

Up there with the yakisoba roll as a Japanese lunchtime staple. It’s curry wrapped in dough, breadcrumbed and deep-fried…so of course it’s delicious. This being a konbini (コンビニ) = convenience store variety, it’s not amazing (and doesn’t compare to the fresh stuff I’ve had), but still good.

2. Sugar Margarine Lunch Pack (ランチパック、シュガーマーガリン)


Margarine + sugar sandwiches. That’s all it is.


I don’t know what I expected, it’s pretty gross.
