We all have cravings, and those cravings can be extravagant, or they can be simple. And sometimes, they can be as simple as a sandwich.
For the next installment of mGuides, it’s all about sandwiches! Instead of your run-of-the-mill sandwiches that are just some meat and/or vegetables in between two slices of bread, the sandwiches on this list are much more substantial than that, and are guaranteed to satisfy your cravings.

It’s only fair that we start out with the oldest name on this list, and Steeple’s Deli has been around since 1981. Located in Tanglin Shopping Centre, they dish out renditions of classic sandwiches like the Reuben, Pastrami, Cuban and BLT, just to name a few.
The decor has barely changed since they opened, and Steeple’s Deli looks like a time capsule of the eighties, with its wood counter, chalkboard menus and old-fashioned bar stools. Tanglin Shopping Centre has available parking, so be quick to head there as Steeple’s Deli will be moving out soon due to the successful en-bloc sale of the building.

Next up is Park Bench Deli! Located at Telok Ayer, customers have a full view of the open concept kitchen, where they can witness the staff preparing their food à la minute. Besides classic sandwiches like the Ham & Cheese and Pastrami Reuben, they also have more interesting ones like Crispy Tofu and Turkey Avocado!
Park Bench Deli is the modern epitome of a sandwich shop, with an extensive menu that includes pancakes, burritos and even housemade desserts. They also have a selection of beers and wine. Parking along the street at Telok Ayer Street can be difficult, so do consider parking at one of the office buildings that surround the area instead.

If what you desire is a sandwich that is generously loaded, you won’t be disappointed with Korio. If you need proof, just look at the photo above. With their playful names and takes on sandwiches, you’re bound to find something to satisfy your hunger. There’s also no neat way to eat their sandwiches, so make sure you have serviettes handy!
Do take note that there also isn’t any space available within Korio to dine in, so you’ll have to find somewhere else to savour your food. Parking is easily available within Far East Square, where Korio is located. So if you can’t wait to find a table, you could use your car as one!

Now this is something not seen very often, a sandwich shop nestled in the heartlands. Located in Hougang Central, Samwitch offers only three sandwiches with beef, chicken and fish, which does make your choice a lot simpler than the other shops. And sometimes, simpler is better.
Besides sandwiches, there are also a variety of housemade teas and coffees available. And while they aren’t Halal-certified, Samwitch doesn’t use pork or lard in any of their dishes. Best of all, being located at Hougang Central, you can get there easily by both car or public transport.

For a change, how about an Asian sandwich? While Banh Mi may not be the first or most predominant choice for Vietnamese food, give the ones at Banh Mi Thit a try. You know they are serious about their food when their baguettes are made in-house, as well as the staff being predominantly Vietnamese.
Choose from beef, chicken, pork and ham, before fresh vegetables are added to the sandwich to provide a flavour and texture contrast. Best of all, their Banh Mi starts from $3.80, the most affordable on this list. As for parking, streetside parking is available both along Geylang Road and the adjacent streets.
