It wasa rainy day and i followed Google Map to King George. I wandered around the building for several times but i coudn't find any sign at all, the photo above shows the only possible entrance, without any signboard. Yes, here it is.
Walked up the stairs and you will find King George on the left hand side, it is much smaller than i imagined. Only 4 seats at the counter and 4 tables of two. There is another two larger tables on the third floor, probably a terrance but i didn't go outside because it was raining.
Once i stepped into this cozy sandwich bar, the lovely toasted smell made me really mouthwatering. Sandwiches are the top-sellers at King George, they also have salads avaialble which comes with one slice of toast. But no matter which one you order, it comes with a drink such as fresh juice and tea. Smoothies are also available.
I was in the mood to eat clean, thus i picked the Vegetarian Sandwich (JPY 1500) with fresh grapefruit juice. It sounds quite boring to have vegetarian sandwich, but this sandwich with georgeous portion of avocado, marble and seasonal vegetables is even more expensive than most of meaty pnes. For the bread part, you may choose from white, dark rye or sesame bread.
It was incredible large that i don't even know how to eat. The vegetable toppings of my sandwich includes: cheese, tomato, black olives, romaine, red cabbage, cucumber, red and yellow peppers, radish, carrot and avocado.The dark rye bread was well-toasted, very thick and tastes 'real'. The sauces works well and i even forgot i was eating a vegetairan sandwich.
In short, i loved this place a lot. Very satisfying sandwich which is quite filling and worth the value. The staff is very friendly and the ambiance makes me feel like eating at home. Certainly will come back for more sandwiches.
