People have been raving about the healthy and enormous sandwiches at King George, a cafe bar in Daikanyama, so I went to check it out. They weren`t kidding. Located a short 5 minute walk from Daikanyama station King George offers 3 floors for seating; the 2nd and main floor is bright with natural light, the 2nd floor offers a large communal table and the rooftop has great views of the city.
Trying to go healthy this summer I ordered their vegetarian sandwich which comes with avocado, marble cheese, seasonal vegetables and a choice of bread (rye, dark rye, sesame or macrobiotic) and a complimentary soda (a complimentary juice or soda comes with a weekday lunch set).
My sandwich was the height of a small glass and the width of two! It was tasty and filling (I could only finish half. The other I took home). Definitely a place I`ll revisit.
