Written by Nicholas Chia

It’s lunchtime and you wanna just grab something that’s hearty, tasty yet convenient at the same time. I don’t know about you, but my go-to meal would be a sandwich. What could be better than having layers of delicious filling sandwiched between two slices of crusty bread?

Don’t think of sandwiches as your boring ol’ ham and sliced cheese held between soggy white bread. In fact, these days more and more places are including gourmet twists and influences from all over the world into their sandwiches.

Just the thought of it makes me drool. So, here are 10 places in Singapore to grab a flavour-packed sandwich!

1. Park Bench Deli
