You can never quite imagine this right within CBD Singapore. A Muslim-owned hearty sandwich bar with the name of “Hungry Bazterdz” (NOT “Hungry Bastards”).
You have to walk all the way into The Arcade to find this dimly-lit shop, complete with underground, reggae vibes, a stark contrast to its surroundings.
Hungry Bazterdz is set up by the people behind Nomad The Gallant Coffee Roasters, a local independent coffee roaster brand.
Here’s how to find it: Walk out of Raffles Place MRT to that iconic grass field, find The Arcade, and walk past money changers and random shops to almost the end inside.
The Hungry Bazterdz menu consist of #epicsandwiches such as Mighty Cheese Steak ($15) – grilled Beef in a secret 4 cheese sauce, on a buttery and toasty hoagie bun, Salmon Teriyaki ($15), and Grand Poobah ($14).

A friend had the Falafel Marinara ($13), which happened to be a vegetarian sandwich consisting of home made falafel patties, a “HB original” marinara sauce, arugula, red onions, and roasted mushrooms within wholemeal bead slices.
She descried it as “ordinary ingredients put together, which came to life with that punchy robust housemade marinara sauce”.
And thought that even a meat lover may become a convert.
I had a Grand Poobah ($14), which had a family secret recipe of braised beef in jus with emmental Cheese, within a buttery and toasty Hoagie Bun.
The taste was almost grubby-tasty-crazy, unexpectedly bursting with flavours.
I grabbed one of those sauces (sorry, didn’t take a close look) and poured some over. Felt almost like eating a satisfying hotdog bun, with double the sensation.
On another occasion, I had an Avocado Toast with Honey, which was unfortunately quite blah and needed a larger portion to feel substantial.
Drinks offered include an inhouse Cold Brew Coffee, Sea Salt Caramel Latte and Thai Iced Tea.
So CBD folks who feel the need to grab some ‘epic’ sandwiches, go to The Arcade, and walk till the end. Find The Hungry Bazterdz. Ohh-laa-laa.
