05: The Sandwich Shop
For a seriously good sandwich, among other things, do check out the new Sandwich Shop outlet. Owner David Cheung, who has been running the business since 2003, shares that the food is still prepared from scratch daily at the outlets (they have eight to date, the latest opened at Marina One in February this year) to ensure freshness. We love the variety of offerings here (there are easily over 50 different items on display at any one time). They have everything from gourmet sandwiches, baguettes, salads and wraps to grilled sandwiches, soups and hot pots (the latter two are thoughtfully kept warm at the hot cabinet section).
Highlights from the sizeable selection include the Massive All Day Breakfast sandwich ($8.50), which tempts with the goodness of streaky bacon, sausage, egg mayo, mushroom, mesclun mix and ketchup; the vegetarian-friendly Veggie Bean Grilled Wrap ($7), filled with avocado, sweet corn, red capsicum, chick peas, kidney beans and pesto mayo, and a refreshing Wakame Salad ($5) which consists of mesclun mix, shredded carrot, sautéed mushroom, boiled egg, cherry tomatoes and wakame (seaweed). Definitely try the Warm Cous Cous Hot Pot (think: a stew of sorts in a cup), which has cous cous, roast chicken, spinach and boiled egg submerged in a homemade tomato soup ($6.50). Each mouthful is a savoury tangy symphony. Delicious.
