They were offered four street-food concepts: gyoza, from grilled cheese, from cheeseburger and sando. They voted for two months and in the end it’s the sando, a Japanese sandwich, who won. It’s a sandwich with a sandwich bread prepared by our baker from rue des Filatiers. The sandwich bread is aerated with egg white and milk, and accompanied by marinated vegetables, pickles and red onions. We are going to offer it with breaded prawns, in breaded chicken, or even with scrambled eggs ”.
