The Sandwich Shop, Surry Hills
The Sandwich Shop which opened just recently on Reservoir Street, near Single Origin is a very cute and tiny place, not a lot of seating area, mostly for takeaways. However, ‘The Mother’ and I managed to grab the last two tables inside.
As the name suggests, it sells freshly made sandwiches (from memory the bread is from Brasserie bread) ranging from chicken schnitzel, to rare roast beef, pulled pork and I was even told that it has one of the nicest Reuben sandwiches in town!
‘The Mother’ couldn’t resist the rare roast beef ($8.90) – seasoned rare roast beef, horseradish, fontina cheese, tomato and leaf lettuce. Oh my, it was a relatively large serving, and incredibly fresh and absolutely delicious.
I would usually order either the pulled pork or the Reuben sandwich, however, on this day, thought I would try something different – something a little healthier, like a salad! Yes, I myself couldn’t believe I passed on slow cooked pulled pork and house made bbq sauce, coleslaw on sourdough roll! I will be back for this pulled pork sandwich!
The quinoa salad with roasted pumpkin, haloumi, which I added chicken was fresh and delicious ($9.50, a little bit extra for the chicken!). All the salads are served in a takeaway container and it was the ‘healthy’ kick that I needed that day.
The breakfast menu isn’t large, there’s the breakfast sliders ($4 each) which looked good but small, spelt and honey banana bread and croissants. Sandwiches are definitely their specialty and I am definitely keen to go back and try the New York Reuben sandwich! I’m so glad that this is just around the corner, I have been looking for a ‘good’ sandwich place.
