Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Many menu items in Japanese restaurants, coffee shops and sweet shops are influenced by foreign words and phrases and are sometimes expressed or written in Katakana characters. Some of those may be transcribed into English, French and Italian and make sense, but others may produce expressions that are incomprehensible to native speakers of those languages. As an example, sandwiches are borrowed from English into Japanese as サンドイッチ or sandoicchi, which is then truncated into サンド or sando. Some restaurants and eateries in Japan mistakenly express this as “sand”, most typically in “hot sand,” which in English cannot mean anything edible. Interestingly, there are uses of “sandos” on some of the more recent YouTube video clips, most notably with reference to “tamago sandos” or “boiled egg salad sandos.”
