In the past when my workplace was nearby, I used to patronize the Robinsons Centre branch. A few days back I had the chance to drop by the area and sample its sandwiches once again.
Queue was predictably long but had no trouble finding a seat (turnover was high) and the queue moved fast too. Service was average, no fuss.
I had the Chicken Avocado sandwich. At SGD7.30 it's quite pricey for chicken bits and avocado between 2 slices of bread, but the taste of the sandwich was fantastic. It was well-toasted (my first time having it toasted as previously I took the sandwiches away in its prepacked un-toasted form), so if possible, opt to have your sandwich toasted.
My husband had the Teriyaki Chicken Wrap (SGD6.90 thereabouts). We both concurred that it didn't taste as good as the sandwich. It was also not as filling as the sandwich.
The Sandwich Shop is situated at the second storey of Hitachi Tower and right beside the escalator. The shop is a hit with the office crowd because of its reasonably price and nutritional selection of food. Do not be misled by the shop's name as you will also be able to find a wide variety of wraps, salads and soups besides their signature sandwiches. I had the Crayfish Sandwich which consists of nicely toasted bread with generous amount of crunchy vegetables and of course, succulent and flavourful crayfish meat. The staffs are well-trained and greeted me while I was making my purchase. They were also efficient in preparing the orders. If you are health-conscious, The Sandwich Shop is a good place to have your lunch. However, it may be better for you to do takeaway as the tables are often crowded during the lunch hours. As such, you may have to spend a little time queueing up before you will be served. But do be patient and you will be rewarded with the scrumptious food.
