Best Japanese Shrimp Sandwiches in London | Monocle Cafe

MONOCLE-CAFE3

After coming back from Tokyo, I have to admit that everything seemed alittle darker.

Food didn’t taste as good, even the toilets were not on the same level.

MONOCLE-CAFE-2Japanese toilets are in a league of their own. What I’m basically saying is….

I NEED A TOILET THAT SPRAYS WATER UP MY BUTT OK. IS THAT SO MUCH TO ASK!??!

I DON’T FEEL CLEAN WITHOUT THIS FUNCTION IN THE UK. I HAVE NEEDS GOD DAMNIT!

That out the way, we can now focus on what I’m really here to talk to you….

My all time favourite cafe is Monocle, located in Baker Street, London. The cafe is is cross between a Japanese patisserie & Swedish bakery everything just feels right in this cafe. It has the most relaxed & chilled out vibe without the pretension normally associated with “hipster” cafes.

MONOCLE-CAFE-1There are 3 things that I come here for:

1) Flat white

2) Japanese Shrimp Sandwiches

3) Japanese Matcha Cheesecakes

MONOCLE-CAFE8Feeling like the cat that got the cream, you’ll normally find me perched on my favourite seat outside the cafe.MONOCLE-CAFE9Mark my words you have not taste Japanese Shrimp Sandwiches quite like this!

The batter is so thin & has a panko crust that is almost buttery that armours the delicate & chunky pieces of shrimp.

The piece de resistance is the tartare sauce, made with egg, pickles, gherkins and mayo. This sex sauce combined with the golden panko armoured shrimp is heavenly.

MONOCLE-CAFE3Every other sandwich just looks and tastes inferior compared.

MONOCLE-CAFE4Do the noble thing, and order their Japanese shrimp sandwiches when you next come to Monocle.MONOCLE-CAFE5You’ll ask yourself, why you didn’t listen to me sooner.
