When Japanese-inspired café Hello Arigato first opened in Upper Thomson, their sandwiches were an instant hit. For all Easties, good news: they’ve recently opened their second café along the Joo Chiat stretch, near Dunman Food Centre and hole-in-the-wall coffee joint Kohi

The sandwiches here are all freshly breaded and prepared, with two thick slices of shokupan (Hokkaido milk bread) and packed with savoury fillings like teriyaki-glazed chicken and Australian wagyu striploin. Throw in Japanese influences like an ajitama egg or katsu sauce – now, that’s what you call a good sando. 

As of now, they’re still in the soft opening stage and their menu might be subject to change. But you should be able to order the classic wagyu sando ($40) – the obvious crème de la crème with its generous slab of wagyu. There are only limited portions of this daily, so if this has caught your eye, make sure to head down either for brunch or an early lunch.

Knowing that most wouldn’t fork out a hefty $40 for a sandwich, they do also offer a more affordable version with their gyu sando ($26). This comes with 160 grams of angus beef striploin and caramelised sweet onion jam. As a special item on the Joo Chiat menu, you can also order a HCG sando ($16), featuring har cheong gai (shrimp paste chicken) that’s left to marinate for 48 hours. 

We’re still debating if they should make it on our list of best sandos in Singapore, but if you’re got sandwich cravings while in the East, this is worthy of a weekend brunch out.
