Ginza is one of the best areas to eat out in Tokyo as there are hundreds of restaurants, cafes and bars gathering.

Besides Japanese restaurants, there are also numbers of great spots to enjoy Western cuisine, and sandwiches are one of them 😉
I personally really like sandwiches, and went to several sandwich stores in Ginza area (near my office) during my lunch break, and today, I’d like to share my favourite sandwich shops in Ginza area. So please have a look 🙂

1. AMERICAN

American is a retro and old-fashioned sandwich eatery in Ginza area. The cafe is long-established and loved by locals for many years. Customers enjoy the eye-popping jumbo sandwiches which come in thick and fluffy white bread with generous amount of fillings. The choice of fillings are egg mayo, tuna mayo, ham cheese, pastrami beef and more. The lunch meal is served with a side salad, small soup and one drink. The cafe is so popular especially during lunch time that sometimes there is a waiting queue outside.

Takeaway sandwiches are also available and they are even more popular as the prices are more reasonable than eat-in. It’s very likely to sold out during lunch time. American is open from 8:00 serving breakfast till 10:30, then re-open for lunch from 12:00 till the bread is sold out.

2. BAREBURGER

Bareburger is an organic burger shop from N.Y., USA, which landed in Tokyo in 2015. The shop is located on the 10F of one of the most iconic shopping buildings of the area, Tokyo Plaza Ginza. Although it’s a burger shops, besides their signature American sized mouthwatering burgers, they do make good sandwiches, too!

I picked a sandwich from the daily value lunch meal which is available daily till 4 pm. It was a fried chicken and coriander sandwich filled with a fried egg, some veges and sweet chili sauce. The generous portion of the sandwich was served with the choice of side dishes: french fries, sweet potato fries or salad, and one drink. The set meal costs around 1,500 yen. My friend had the classic burger “the County Fair” with an avocado topping, and it was also looking pretty good! As the restaurant is situated on the 10th floor , I have also enjoyed the overlook view of the Ginza shopping area by the window seat.

3. LUKE’S LOBSTER

Luke’s Lobster is a popular Lobster Roll restaurant base in New York, USA, serving delicious lobster, crab, and shrimp rolls and sandwiches in Maine style. In the past years, Luke’s Lobster has opened 5 shops in Tokyo in total, and they have been extremely popular. Their newest Ginza branch has just been opened in July 2018, and it’s located off the main street of Ginza shopping street.

While other Luke’s stores in Tokyo are usually tiny and have small seating space, the Ginza store offers a spacious eating space where customers can enjoy delicious lobster rolls and sandwiches in a cozy and relaxing atmosphere. The casual marine themed interior is totally instagram-worthy! I shared a lobster roll and crab grilled cheese sandwich with my friend. I really liked both, especially with the spicy Sriracha sauce which gives an extra flavour! I also liked the french fried a lot which were really crunchy and tasty!
