Echo Park sandwich shop Konbi receives big honor


The Echo Park shop is intimate, and there’s space for just 10 customers at the counter. Welcome to Konbi, the Japanese-style sandwich shop wedged between a corner store and a crude vegetarian cheesecake bread kitchen and blessing shop.

In spite of its humble size, Konbi has proceeded to win far reaching acclaim from eatery pundits and foodies, who line up for crustless sandwiches, plates of mixed greens and cakes.

Presently, Konbi has piled on its greatest respect yet: nourishment magazine Bon Appetit put the Sunset Boulevard shop at the highest point of its 2019 rundown of America’s best new eateries.

Gourmet experts Nick Montgomery Akira Akuto opened Konbi, which is their interpretation of Japanese comfort stores called konbini, just about a year back.
