singapore best sandwiches two men bagel house the lox review

Sandwiches are like burgers, but more diverse. Perfect choice for takeaways, with an overwhelming variety to spice things up too.  

Whilst my previous listicle was on burgers, I couldn’t refrain from doing one for sandwiches too. Considering some of my favourite places are heavily bread focused, and some of my favourite dishes ever are sandwiches, it was only natural.

I kept this list as varied as possible, because the tedium of monotony would have obviously kicked in by now at the start of phase one post-circuit breaker.

Two Men Bagel House

singapore best sandwiches two men bagel house the lox review
Two Men Bagel House have the most famous bagels in Singapore, for good reason.

Talking about bagels in Singapore, Two Men Bagel House will always be mentioned. There’s little mystery to their popularity after you bite into their handmade bagels.

The Lox ($12) used supple smoke salmon and smooth cream cheese to form a flavourful foundation for an array of complements, like pickles and red onions, to deftly build upon.

The recommended sesame bagel capped the profile with a nice fragrance, whilst its fluffiness mixed with the slickness of the ingredients for an enjoyable mouthfeel.

They are open fortakeaway or islandwide delivery, and also available on deliveroo (Novena, Holland Village, Tanjong Pagar).

wine rvlt

""</p

WINE RVLT is a wine bar but many know them for their patty melt ($26). Costs a pretty penny but worth its price tag — my vote for best sandwich in Singapore.

Eating it was truly a romantic experience. Lips quivered as they met the perfectly buttered and crispy Japanese milk buns, then an euphoric mingling of saliva with the sensual juices from the succulent Westholme A4 Wagyu — my heart swooned as I chewed.

Pleasure was further amplified by a magical blend of balancing sweetness and zest from the ketchup and herb sauce, a different richness to complement the beefy decadence.

Wine RVLT have launched make-it-at-home kits starting from 8 June, DM them or whatsapp them at 9022 2655 or 9388 1436 for info.

Park Bench Deli

park bench deli peanut butter and jelly sandwich review
Peanut Butter and Jelly revolutionised by Park Bench Deli.

Park Bench Deli is the synonym for “sandwich” in Singapore. Their sandwiches have never disappointed, especially the classic peanut butter and jelly ($10).

This decadent beauty was a crazy stroke of genius. Layers of crunchy cornflake-crusted chocolate and milk bread made me scream “diabetes is worth it”. As you bit down, gloriously thick peanut butter and berry jam geysered out.

Park Bench Deli has revolutionised PB&J. It’s simple, you take the unhealthiness and turn it up to eleven. Simply sinful. Yet. So. Satisfying.

All of Park Bench Deli’s great sandwiches are available for takeaways and delivery now.

salted & hung

Salted & Hung wagyu pastrami sandwich review
Salted & Hung’s wagyu pastrami is a behemoth worth every cent.

Salted & Hung is known for one thing — their meat. Needless to say, it’s hard to resist this hunky wagyu pastrami ($25).

A massive alpha that shames all other sandwiches; but it’s not just quantity over quality. Every morsel of the thick stack was crammed with smoky rich beef juices. These flavours popped quite boldly after some ingenious attenuation from the mustard and tart pickles — crazily decadent.

Pastrami was immensely tender and beautifully graced by intermittent scores of gentle fat, though slightly chewy at parts. Finished with some impeccably toasted sourdough, it compelled me to swiftly this beast liek David Fell Goliath.

Sink your teeth into this massive boy now, through pickup or island-wide delivery .

le bon funk

""</p

Le Bon Funk is yet another natural wine bar with a legendary sandwich, name me a more iconic combo.

This beef tongue sandwich’s ($26) highlight was a mound of crazily tender beef tongue that sported an endearingly unique texture. It was all cloaked in a herby gribiche, essentially an egg-mayo salad sauce, which was an exceedingly complex concoction.

The sauce mingled harmoniously with the heavy savoury notes and cumulated in a fascinating explosion of flavours.

They are open for delivery or takeaway currently only on Friday and Saturday.

Sando

sando singapore pork katsu sando review
Sando’s pork katsu sando is the quintessential Japanese sando, simple and elegant.

Japanese sandwiches are all the rage and Sando, a hidden gem, makes great and affordable sandos.

A pristinely crispy panko crust encased the bouncy patty of this pork katsu sando ($10). Caramelised onions sprang with a controlled sweetness and acidity, which tangoed elegantly with the softly piquant tonkatsu sauce.

The buttery buns’ fluffy insides and light crispy crumb, combined with crunch from the lettuce, made for the perfect finishing touch.

These sandos can be picked up or delivered to your door step ; they have outlets at Labrador Park and Telok Ayer.

Korio

korio grilled cheese review
Korio’s grilled cheese is filled with dreamily luscious caramelised onions.

Korio’s grilled cheese ($8) has seen plenty of exposure on instagram because it’s just that photogenic. As delicious as it looked.

The stunning crisp of the sourdough encased the dreamily molten cheeses, with the sharpness of the cheddar particularly striking and blending beautifully with the bread’s sourness, as well as the depth of flavour of the caramelised onions.

The onions were dreamily soft and not fibrous and oozing with vivacious sweetness, complemented by a kiss of acidity. 

Snag some sandwiches and fluffy donuts now, they are open for delivery and takeaways.

gyu & tori

gyu & tori singapore wagyu sando review
Gyu & Tori’s wagyu sando is a massive steal at its price.

Wagyu sandos often carries hefty price tags, but not at Gyu & Tori. The original wagyu patty katsu sandwich cost merely $10, probably the cheapest around.

The patty was so consistently tender and gave a nice contrast to the crunchy panko crust; though the bread could have been toasted better. Still, the quality was pretty damn good for the price. 

The tonkatsu sauce also packed plenty of piquant-umami notes, and blended harmoniously with the gush of beef juices.

Gyu & Tori doesn’t have a website, but delivery can be arranged on grab, deliveroo or foodpanda  , whilst pickup can be arranged through a call or SMS to 9722 7545.

Micro Bakery

micro bakery grilled cheese review
Micro Bakery’s grilled cheese is just crazy good.

Still my favourite at Micro Bakery after multiple visits. This grilled cheese sandwich ($12) with brie, cheddar and mozzarella was scrumptiously rich, and possibly one of the best I’ve had.

Its flavour profile was thoughtfully balanced, seeing pronounced Brie earthiness and Cheddar sharpness bookended by sauerkraut piquancy. Served with an addictively zesty tomato dip, this was love at first sight.

Get some of that sourdough and sandwiches, by picking up or through delivery at Botanic Gardens or Katong.
