Wanpaku Sando Disaster


It has been a while since I posted my kitchen disasters. Have you heard of Wanpaku Sandwich?

It was a sensation at one time and yet I only found out about it last year. Where have  I been?

Wanpaku Sandwich or Wanpaku Sando is a big ass Japanese Sandwich which is colorful and stacked to the max.  It is quite tricky to make these sandwiches as you not only have to layer your ingredients, you also need to wrap the sandwiches neatly, slice it in half and reveal a gorgeous cross section.

I was stoked after watching a few videos. Wah! Semangat! 

Then when I started assembling the sandwich, I realized that it was quite a challenge. Wrapping was another obstacle (something I failed at). Wanna see ugly sandwich?

I am not ashamed to show my failures to all and sundry.

Look at the egg in the sandwich on the right. So sad.
My sandwiches were on the right side of tunggang langgang.


Tsk! Tsk! Tsk! 

It is just too hard for me. I need practice. I am sure I can nail this.

But in the interim, I reckon, it would be a lot easier if the ingredients were all flat and in one (or two) piece(s).


So I made my hampalang version using luncheon meat, fried egg/hard boiled egg, cucumber slices and bak kwa.

Nothing impressive but at least my sandwiches did not fall apart and oh my, they were so good! hee..hee... Imagine, luncheon meat and bak kwa together mmmmpphhhhh!!!


Maybe one day, a beautiful Wanpaku Sandwich might appear on my blog wahahaha!! Good luck! Jia Yu! to me!

  6. Your super big sandwich in photo 1 looks so nice and professionally prepared that I thought it was bought from a famous store. I would have difficulty eating this giant sandwich.

    1. What yo saw is actually two sandwiches, each cut into halves. One for lunch, one for dinner hee..hee..

  7. I think it's even harder to eat than to assemble. How do you eat that without it falling apart and making a mess? I don't think I can finish one sandwich in one sitting! >_< I wonder how many meals you took to finish that. Your localised version of wanpaku is certainly very sinful what with both luncheon meat & bakwa! ;)

    1. It is quite OK because the plastic wrap holds the sandwich together. What you see is actually two sandwiches cut into halves. So I had one sandwich (two halves) for lunch and another for dinner. Finished! hee..hee...

    1. Not that messy if it is firmly wrapped up as the plastic wrap hold it together. But must open mouth big big hah..hah..

  9. your effort is still 10 times better than what i could do! my favourite sando in kl is at sunbather coffee - really great proportion of quality bread and tender eggs with all the other ingredients - if you're ever in bangsar south, it's worth checking out - here's a customer's photo of their sando: https://www.facebook.com/sunbathercoffee/photos/a.2981267568870645/2981268408870561/?type=1&theater

  10. Definitely know about this sandwich for its aesthetically presentation!
    Little suggestion, put omelet or cut ur hard boiled egg before ensembling would be better, agree?
