One of a pair duking it out with Pret A Manger (the other is Simply Sandwich, just across the road) for supremacy on the same stretch, The Sandwich Shop offers a comprehensive takeaway menu that includes vegetarian sandwiches, breakfast sets and platters for large groups. The chicken tikka ($7) is almost always sold out. Our ham and Brie baguette ($7.50) was clammy and dry thanks to its stint in the chiller (a fate common to many of the sandwiches we tried, so when ordering, insist on fresh portions that aren’t swiped from the chiller). Rather good was the Club TSS ($7.90) – a chunk of onion bread embracing salad, large cuts of hard-boiled eggs and bacon strips. We were stumped by the chicken satay salad ($6.50). The generous tiles of moist, curry-flavoured chicken, crushed peanuts, tinned pineapple slices and leaves, we understood – but what does lemon mayonnaise have to do with satay?
The Sandwich Shop was included in our recent Working Al Desko - Working Lunch feature.
Note - 8 Jan 08 - Pret a Manger has now closed its' branch in Singapore.
