If you're living in Japan and the double impact of the winter weather and increasingly worrisome effects of the novel coronavirus are leaving you feeling gloomy and cold to the core, then a delicious warm meal may help you through the day.

If you read our recent review of the best croquette shops in Japan, you may be feeling hungry. However, those shops may not deliver, let alone be close to where you live.

Fortunately, it's more likely that KFC has a store near you, and they've partnered with delivery services such as Uber Eats and others, so you can rely on them. And that's great news if you want to try a delicious new cream croquette sandwich...

KFC Japan's Creamy Croquette Chicken Filet Sandwich

You may have tried sandwiches will cream croquettes in them at some other fast-food chains, but probably none like this.

KFC Japan's Creamy Croquette Chicken Filet Sandwich brings together KFC's plump made-fresh-on-premises chicken fillet patty, fresh lettuce, and a seafood-based cream croquette chock full of Sakura Shrimp. If that didn't sound great already, they've drizzled the whole thing with an umami-rich lobster sauce. Sandwiched between toasted rye buns, it's a hearty meal sure to warm you heart and soul.

The Creamy Croquette Chicken Filet Sandwich can be ordered a la carte or as part of a set meal:

  • Creamy Croquette Chicken Filet Sandwich: 490 yen
  • Creamy Croquette Chicken Filet Sandwich Combo: 790 yen (Creamy Croquette Chicken Filet Sandwich, small fries, and a medium drink)
  • Creamy Croquette Chicken Filet Sandwich Deal Box: 990 yen (Creamy Croquette Chicken Filet Sandwich, Boneless Chicken, small fries, a medium drink, and a Mini Apple Pie)

The Creamy Croquette Chicken Filet Sandwich is available while supplies last at all participating KFC locations in Japan.

I was there until the lobster sauce. Too rich.

As long as there's no wasabi in there.

Sorry, but it looks like greasy lips spewing out inedible or already eaten something that disagreed with the system.

Thumbs up in agreement to all above posters.

It doesn't look very healthy. I would rather stick to a nutritious Japanese meal which is definitely more comforting in winter months. Starbucks, McDonald's, KFC, etc.. no thanks!

It's a croque of something alright.

Well...I must differ with the above commenters. It may not be health food but an occasional treat won't damage you that much. Don't eat them on a daily basis but you could probably eat one every now and then and live through it. I would love to try one. They had me at sakura shrimp and lobster sauce.

You are right, an occasional snack will do no harm. I recall years ago when someone told me, as I was eating a sandwich, that white bread is not healthy, with all the nutrients bleached out of it. Then when I was done with my lunch, I went outside and guess what I saw? That same person leaning against a wall smoking a cigarette. Now that's healthy! What a world!
