Sandwiches aren’t just for breakfast. They are good enough to fill your tummy for lunch or dinner meals, particularly when comes to the stacked varieties filled with proteins, veggies and cheese. Which brings us to the sandos, which mean “sandwiches” in Japanese. We have different variations of sandos here, covering the classic Japanese styles to fusion options. So, here are the 8 Delicious Bite-Worthy Sandos in Singapore worth checking out.
1) 46 Mittsu
Suppose you prefer something simple but satisfying. In that case, you can’t go wrong with 46 Mittsu’s B.E.C — a savoury bestseller that comes with scrambled eggs, bacon, cheddar cheese and pickled mayo sauce sandwiched between ciabatta bread. Some of their hearty sandos include the Korean-style Firebird (gochujang fried chicken with purple slaw & sunny egg) and Holy Cow (beef chunk with garlic butter, chimichurri sauce, melted cheddar cheese & sunny egg).

Words like “tasty” and “filling” are best described for Korio’s range of sandos, offering wholesome bites like Caprese Grilled Cheese and the smoked turkey ham-based Biggie Croque. The former comes with a trio of cheesy goodness including cheddar, mozzarella and American cheese. Not to mention delicious add-ons like marinated Roma tomatoes, basil and caramelised onions sandwiched between sourdough bread.

Park Bench Deli’s offshoot, Onda, specialises in tummy-filling Cuban-inspired sandos. The highlight includes Cubano — a mix of sweet ham, lechon, Swiss cheese, pickles and mustard all sandwiched between the soft bread roll. They have familiar favourites too, namely the classic Ham & Cheese and Turkey Avo Melt.

4) Cafe Natsu
Here’s a brunch spot located at Joo Chiat Road that specialises in Western-Japanese fusion cuisines. Their menu includes Signature Sandos, covering the classic Egg Mayo and the beefy goodness of Wagyu. The latter is what fascinates us the most: you’ll get juicy grilled Wagyu beef sandwiched between Shishito ketchup and rainbow slaw in two slices of Shokupan (Japanese milk bread). If that’s not enough, the Wagyu choice comes with a side serving of Togarashi fries.

Hello, indeed and this is especially true with their freshly-prepared sandos. They have two outlets available in Upper Thomson and Joo Chiat Road and each outlet has its own exclusive sandos. For instance, if you dine at the Joo Chiat outlet, they have HCG Sando — an interesting combo of marinated har cheong gai (shrimp paste chicken) and cucumber sandwiched between the Japanese milk bread. Alternatively, try their bestseller (and yes, it’s available in both outlets): the Gyu Sando, which comes with Angus beef striploin and caramelised sweet onion jam in Japanese milk bread.

Hiryu may have been specialising mainly in authentic omakase meals. But if you are here during dinnertime, check out their luxurious Hiryu Wagyu Sando, which is available as part of the a la carte menu. It comes in four pieces consisting of charred-grilled Wagyu Miyazaki A5 with caramelised onion sandwiched between toasted white bread.
