The concept of a sandwich is simple. Two pieces of bread with your fillings of choice stacked inbetween. And while the concept remains simple, the creation of an epic sandwich is anything but. Its about finding the right mix of flavours and an array of textures that is equally distributed in every bite. And with the variety of ingredients that are at our disposal, there truly are infinite possibilities.

A Grilled Ham & Cheese may seem simple enough. But the choice of ingredients and a perfect grill can elevate this childhood favourite into a restaurant-worthy dish. Bayfare Social in Rosewood Hotel certainly has one of the prettiest Toasties with their combination of Ham and Swiss Cheese. Served only during lunch, diners can also try sandwiches filled with Corned Beef, Pulled Pork or Smoked Salmon.

The Wagyu Sando is a perfect example of taking a familiar sandwich and redefining it with choice ingredients and innovative cooking. The Wagyu Sanjdo is effectively a reinvention of the steak sandwich. At Katsumoto, they use an M6/M7 Wagyu steak and fry it Katsu-style before placing between two Hokkaido Milk Buns that have been slathered with Tonkatsu Sauce and Kewpie Mayonnaise. This all results in a truly luxurious sandwich. For those looking for something less meaty, they also serve sandwiches with plant-based alternatives such as Impossible Beef and Omnipork.

Like the Grilled Ham & Cheese, the BLT is another simple sandwich creation that only improves with premium ingredients. Case in point, Morty’s opts for Thick Cut Bacon in their sandwich to create a meatier texture. Morty’s may be best known for their Reuben and Pastrami Sandwiches. But they’ve also got a huge range of other sandwiches available including their Club Sandwich and Smoke Truffle Chicken Sandwich.

The Reuben is one of the all-time great American sandwiches. And Fat Chad’s in Sai Ying Pun is one of the latest openings to offer this meaty dish. Stacked high with Corned Beef Brisket, Fat Chad’s serves their Reuben with Sauerkraut, Mozzarella and Russian Dressing. But as a boozy bodega, of course they have a range of other deli sandwiches. If Reuben’s aren’t your thing, opt for the Cubano or even a Chicken Tikka Masala Sandwich served in Naan.

There was a time when breakfast sandwiches could only be enjoyed for breakfast. Luckily for us, this is no longer the case. And as far as breakfast sandwiches go, it’s hard to look past a Bacon & Egg. At Superhooman, diners can enjoy their Bacon & Egg Sandwich that is beautifully served in a Charcoal Brioche Bun. Other breakfast sandwich options here include the Avocado and Dukkah Toast or the Croque Madame.

Who says sandwiches can’t be enjoyed for dessert? Fukuro, a Japanese Izakaya, brings an East Asian spin to the concept with their Monaka Ice Cream Sandwich. The “buns” are two crispy wafers. And the filling is comprised of a Seaweed Ice Cream and Cherry Jam. A sweet and savoury way to end the meal.
