While we all have our own comfort foods, arguably, one of the most comforting things to sink your teeth into is a warm grilled sandwich – specifically, a grilled cheese sandwich.
Lay out some bread, slop on a slice of cheese, pop it in the toaster, and you have yourself a delicious snack that never fails to hit the spot.
If you’re a fan of grilled cheese sandwiches, there’s a sandwich shack you need to meet that serves up grilled cheese sandwiches that will put your homemade stacks to shame – 52 Sandwich Shack.
Located at the basement of Raffles City Shopping Center, this takeaway-only sandwich kiosk sells 6 types of sandwiches piled with plenty of the cheesy goodness we all love.
Their sandwiches are hearty, delicious, and sinful AF, and that’s precisely why we love it. Eating healthy can get boring after awhile, no?
Stack ’em Up
A 52 Sandwich Shack original is the 52 Grilled Cheese ($6.90).
This sandwich creation is named after the 52 cheesy experiments it took for the head chef, Chef Daniel, to find the perfect combo of cheese for the local palate. Consisting of 3 different types of cheese – cheddar, mozzarella, and fontina – the trio of cheeses is sandwiched between buttery, toasty brioche buns.
This sandwich is all about the cheese, so don’t be surprised to find that there is no meat in it!
Can’t do without your meat? Then try the Wagyu Beef With Onsen Egg ($11.90)!
Now, this is a fun sandwich to eat.
The Wagyu beef sandwich is served separate from the Onsen egg, which comes in a small container. The sliced beef is tender and topped with tangy balsamic onions and 52 Sandwich Shack’s signature combo of cheeses.
Dip your sandwich into the egg or break your yolk and drizzle all that good stuff all over your beef!
The flavours come together very nicely, making for a hearty meal that will fill you up for quite awhile.
If you’re not into beef, maybe you’ll like their Pulled-Pork Yakiniku ($8.90).
With a generous amount of marinated pulled pork, pickles, and their triple cheese combo stacked between warm brioche buns, this sandwich is heavenly. The tangy, slight sourness of the pickles complements the heavier flavour of the pork, making for a delightful marriage of flavours.
Mac & cheese fans, have you ever tried mac & cheese in a sandwich? We know, it sounds like a great idea and a terrible idea at the same time.
The Bacon Mac & Cheese ($7.90) is literally a sandwich containing mac & cheese, with some bacon bits to give it a savoury kick. A carb on carb sandwich that’s the definition of sinful, try this if you want to go all out – calorie-wise – in treating yourself.
Be sure to dig in immediately after you order it so the mac & cheese is still warm inside the sandwich!
If you find yourself in the CBD either for work or for pleasure, be sure to make a detour to Raffles City to grab yourselves these decadent sandwiches! A guilty pleasure that’s super affordable, this spot is definitely a must-try for those who love cheese.
