Ogura Toast/Morning Cafe Lyon

Miki Furukawa

You can’t visit Nagoya without trying the famous Ogura Toast, a Nagoya specialty that consists of thick toasted slices of bread topped with butter or margarine, and sweet red bean paste. Despite its simplicity, it makes for quite a filling breakfast.

Although this delicious snack is a staple in cafes and breakfast chains around the region, the style it’s served in may change depending on the shop. Some serve it in a sandwich-style where the red bean paste is spread between two pieces of bread, and some serve the bread and the paste separately so you can spread as much on as you want.

Ogura Toast is widely available in Nagoya, but I recommend trying the Ogura Press Sandwich from Morning Café Lyon. For 410 yen, you get a delicious hot-pressed sandwich that packs a crunch with every bite.

名古屋の喫茶店で提供される軽食といえば「小倉トースト」。厚めにスライスした食パンをトーストし、マーガリンまたはバターを塗って大粒の小豆を煮て蜜に漬けそれをこしあんに混ぜて作られた小倉餡(oguraan)を乗せたもの。食パンに小倉餡を乗せた状態で提供されることが多いが、サンドイッチのように食パンで餡を挟んだもの(小倉サンド)や、パンと小倉餡を別々にしてお客さんが好きなだけ餡を乗せられるお店もあります。オススメのお店は1日中モーニングサービスをしている「リヨン」。ぜひ食べてもらいたいのが小倉プレスサンド(410円)です。サンドイッチ用のパンに小倉餡をはさんでプレスしたもの。カリッとしたパンと中にはさまれた小倉餡がとても美味しいです。
