Just like in Japan. If you are craving for them authentic finger sandwiches you find in Japan, this is the place. We stop by here often and they never disappoint- in both service and quality, perfectly consistent.
I visited at about 11 on a Saturday. There was a line out the door (about 8-10 parties in front of me). The line is understandable as there is very little room on the inside and the biz is still being cautious about COVID.If you haven't been there before please note: they only have the flavors in the case and will shut down when everything is gone. I watched the last of several flavors be sold as I waited near the door.They do have an order ahead option on their website which requires 24 hour+ advanced ordering.I will be doing this next time I have a hankering because everything I had was exceptional. Can't recommend it enough.Since all of the sandwiches are served cold, I got the fried cod sandwich as more of a dare, not comprehending how a cold, fried fish sandwich could be a viable option. It was a unanimous fan favorite.You owe it to yourself to try it at least once, but definitely prepare ahead.
As someone who questions the presence of a dessert sandwich I was pleasantly surprised with the strawberry and oreo sandwich!!!! The whipped cream isnt too sweet or heavy with a good balance of milkiness. The strawberry is definitely necessary to balance out the cream amd oreo while the bread has a nice and soft quality to it. Would come back another day to try the pork cutlet or croquette ones next time I come!
I LOVE THIS PLACE! The lines are very long even before they open in the mornings and I am not surprised! This place was cute sandwiches with a lot of variety. The white bread used for the sandwiches are soft and simply delicious. I drove from Bellevue to Portland to visit my friend and the sandwiches were still fresh and yummy! I definitely recommend pre-ordering the sandwiches you want beforehand because they sell out super quickly!
The House of TRES. Don't want to give them a 5 star, because then everyone will find out about this little GEM tucked away in Bellevue. Don't come. It's too amazing. Stay away! So many varieties of Sweet & Savory sandwiches, like the 7- Eleven in Japan, style sandwiches. Get on youtube and check it out yourself. My favs, Yakisoba noodle sandwich and the egg salad, ham & cheese and strawberry cream. You want matcha something or other, they got it. You want potato croquette? You got an itch for port tonkatsu and bread? They got it. If you like 7 grain, organic, single-sourced, vegan, GF...This is not for you. They feature this lovely triangle cut sandwiches, built on white bread. Oh yeah. White Bread. So, processed, white and fluffy. No crusts. They cut the crusts off. Genius! Don't come here. It's too amazing. Lots of parking. QFC and a killer Teriyaki place is in the same parking lot and the Sunset Hills Memorial Cemetery is across the street...maybe a picnic at the cemetery?
If you want an excuse to eat 5 sandwiches in 1 day, here's the chance. You cannot go wrong with any of the variety they have. Both sweet and savory are delicious. Whatever you happen to be in the mood for, they have a sando for you. They're so simple and so satisfying.
Saw this place in a few videos before our Seattle trip so we already planned on going here & it was just as good as we heard & hoped.Ordered 5 sandwiches total (shrimp cutlet, exotic Japan, miso katsu, curry croquette & tres special). The shrimp cutlet (basically fried shrimp & egg salad) definitely was our favorite but none of them were bad honestly.The miso katsu was a little sweeter than I would have liked but overall flavor was still good. Curry croquette had a light yellow curry flavor not too overpowering. Tres special was a triple layer sandwich (egg salad, ham with cucumbers & potato salad). It had a lot going on but seemed to work pretty well. It can get a little to "bready" towards the end & I think just a little more ham would enhance it.The exotic Japan was a dessert sandwich & nice change from all the savory ones. It had fresh strawberries, azuki beans & matcha cream. The fresh berries with the sweeter components worked well. The matcha flavor was pretty strong so keep that in mind.One critique for all the sandwiches in general is they could be filled a little more to the edge of the bread. They're all cut in half so when I bit into my shrimp cutlet half I noticed the end piece was basically bread.All in all I'd eat any of the 5 sandwiches again, but I'd definitely pick the shrimp cutlet as my number 1.Be sure to order online so you don't have to wait in line & so you can be sure to get exactly what you want. There was probably at least 15 people in line when we parked out frontParking was easy since it's located in a plaza with a larger lot. Service was fine for how busy they were.Pro tips: Plan to pickup these sandwiches to enjoy on your drive out to Snoqualmie Falls since it's somewhat on the way there if you are coming from the general Pikes Place direction.Also I saw they sell these sandwiches at Uwajimaya market so if you're there it could be a good time to grab some.Will definitely return here (& order online again) when back in Seattle.
This place has been on my list for a while now. I finally got my lazy butt up early to grab their popular items before they get sold out. Arrived around 9:10 am and already the cases looked a bit sparse. But some of the ones I wanted were still available - Yay!! I got the Miso Katsu, Pork Cutlet, Teri-tama, Strawberry custard cream, and the egg salad! I rushed to work and immediately tried the Miso Katsu - let me just say - I think I died a little and went to bread heaven. That bread was fluffy soft and the contrast of soft then crunch from that Katsu was absolutely mind blowing! And the Miso sauce was not overwhelming either - really well balance. The entire sandwich was very simple and I felt extremely satisfied - not full - but satisfied. The kind of satisfaction where you say to yourself, "Damn, nothing can beat that flavor right now so I'm just gonna stop eating." But eventually, I got to the other items and they were mostly very delicious. My dad enjoyed the pork cutlet and my mom was in love with the strawberry custard cream. I have to admit though that the Teri-tama was just ok - so I will skip that item next time. Gonna do their online order in the near future though so I can get me some Loco Moco, Shrimp Cutlets, Crab Croquette, and so many more!!
Finally tried this place after adding it to my must-try collections list and I'm so glad I did because it was so yummy. I ordered the crispy chicken, egg and oreo sandwich. Once I got in my car I started on the chicken and loved it that I immediately went back inside and ordered 2 miso pork, 2 katsu pork, 2 crispy chicken and 2 strawberry for my family to try. My fam live in a small town in Kitsap County so they wouldn't ever get a chance to try this place since it's so far for them. My little sister was visiting me at the time and she ordered several of the ham sandwiches and pork cutlets too. We were both happy, like we were flying high nothings gonna get us down cuz we just ate an awesome adorable reasonably priced meal happy. If you're in the area try this place but hurry cuz once they run out they are DONE!!!
In and out service! Grabbed a few sandwiches and walked out! Sandwiches were great and I will try more when I come back! I got the: Miso Katsu (Pork, Miso, Sesame, Sugar Salt, Pepper, Flour, Panko, Butter, Bread) Strawberry (Strawberry, Whipped cream, Sugar, Bread) Fried Shrimp (Shrimp, Egg, Ketchup, Mayonnaise, Tartar sauce, Salt, Pepper, Butter, Cabbage, Bread)
Absolutely love!! Their sandwich bread takes me back to my Tokyo trip eating Seven 11 sammies that are SO good. They sell out very quickly so if you don't go in early you likely won't get everything you want. I love their strawberry cream and eggs sandwich. The sweet meaty combination is just okay, I prefer the salty crunchy fillings. I'm always impressed with their excellent service and prices. Cannot recommend enough!
Love this place. Excellent for grabbing some light food items on the go. All the sandwich options I've tried tasted great, and kids love them too. Good portion and store in a good location with plenty of parking to just jump in, grab, pay, and go.If I'm going on a road trip, this is usually my first stop to pack some food either for snacking later, or as a light meal. You can't go wrong with any choice.

Sandwiches are fresh and there is way more variety in store than at uwajimaya. Service is always good and friendly. I love the variety and options they have.
