If you are bored with Subway (are you?), there are always sandwich shops known for their exciting fillings such as Park Bench Deli, Sandwich Lab and 52 Sandwich Shack.

Which I think you should give a try.

Stack should also gather some attention for their cheekily-named sandwiches such as Chunky AF ($15), Sweet Valley High ($11), Deli Alli ($13), Blue Steel ($11), Sleepy Nonna ($9), Green Goblin ($9), and Gold Finger ($9). (I can imagine the meeting behind naming all these sandwiches should be fun.)

This is a concept behind The Black Hole Group, which must be doing something right as they are on the roll for shop openings, from The Great Mischief, Santap, Tipo Pasta Bar, The Thievery, to The Mad Sailors.

They obviously know their target customers very well.

The sandwich café is located along Jalan Klapa (10 minutes’ walk from Bugis MRT station), a few shops away from Kumoya known for their pop-up themed café, sharing space with co-working office Camelia & Co.

It has a colourful, almost beach-like vibes, just that there is no air-con and you may find part of your sandwich flying away if a big gush of wind comes descending.

There are a couple of sandwiches I am keen to try, such as the Sweet Valley High with French toast, country apple and peach compote, hickory turkey ham, blueberry cream cheese with speculoos sauce.

I can imagine all that party in the mouth with the savoury-sweet combination.

It wasn’t hard to settle for The Makcik ($13) – the name and components got me sold.

Rendang? Of course.

So the Makcik sandwich comes with tri-tip beef rendang, garlic aioli, bruised tomatoes, garden greens, pickled onions and fresh jalapeños, in Rye bread.

The fillings were quite da-shiok, with that familiar spiciness that tickles your tongue, balanced by the amount of greens.

I only thought that the bread was on the dry side, and could have either been more toasted, or replaced with something softer (Either would have been fine with it, I just thought that the bread was neither here nor there, and didn’t gel well with the fillings.)

This could make a good grab-and-go place, but I am wondering about the price, could be slightly on the high side for the youth and students who definitely love their sandwiches.
