Time Out says

Think pillowy and crustless white bread, crispy panko-breaded cutlets and lashings of infused Kewpie sauces.

Katsu is like the Japanese version of schnitzel, with the main difference being the use of fluffy panko breadcrumbs. Like its German counterpart, it makes for a great sandwich filling: think juicy, crunchy cutlet between two pieces of cloud-like bread slathered with a thick, tangy sauce. If the idea has your mouth watering, then plan a visit to this sandwich joint near Queen Vic Market. 

The chicken sando is the go-to, but you can also choose from sandwiches filled with breaded pork, prawns, mushrooms or eggs. Every sandwich comes with a side of a tart ponzu-dressed salad, and you can add on a side of fries tossed with a savoury furikake seasoning. If you're not really feeling a sanga, you can also choose from katsu rice bowls, sweet breakfast toasts, fresh pastries and coffee by Proud Mary. 

Hot tip: Meet Sando is within a stone's throw of QVM, so plan your visit on a market day so that you can devour your sando then spend your day wandering around the markets.
