The Cubano, really worth my calories.
The roll is soft inside but crispy outside, served with very generous roast pork and ham,, pickles, and Swiss cheese.

📍Park Bench Deli.
179 Telok Ayer St

The bacon bits is somewhat of a scam because you're really kind of forced to add it, you need a little bit of contrast. So that wasn't super value for money

Nonetheless this was absolutely delicious. Creamy, rich, there's some umami from the cheese, yet it wasn't too jelat. Pasta was on point as well. I haven't had too many gourmet Mac and cheese, or even Mac and cheese tbh, so this is definitely the best I've had so far. Nonetheless, it's worth it

Even tho I say it's not too jelat, probably best to split with someone lol

Saw a video of bifengtang lobster on eater? And was tempted to try.

This wasn't a great version though, the white wine? Taste overwhelmed everything else and you can hardly taste the spices.

Meat sauce(Ragu) had a slight tang, pasta texture was decent. If I'm not wrong they replaced liver w foie gras, very crispy outside and creamy inside, but there was a taste which I didn't like at all, maybe cos I rarely eat foie. Overall a competent rendition

Burgers & fries were yummy!

Wanted to order the pastrami sandwich but they didn’t had it so we got the hot honey chicken burger & roast beef sandwich together with tater tots as sides!

Wasn’t a huge fan of the beef sandwich due to the strong beefy taste but chicken was well marinated and tender! We also love how generous their portion was 👍🏻

The piece de resistance of Park Bench Deli is none other than their Pastrami Reuben. A towering sandwich of house-smoked pastrami, sauerkraut, swiss cheese and Russian dressing all packed between toasted sourdough bread.

This is all you could ever want for a meaty sandwich, with delicious smoky and savoury notes that paired well with a hint of sourness from the sauerkraut. The toasted sourdough added the perfect bite for a mix of textures and if you ever so please, there's a dill pickle on the side as well. No fries or added sides are needed it - I was pretty amazed that this single sandwich could fill my stomach up leaving just a little room for dessert [Yes that lone bombolini at the back.]

I do like PBD's deli vibes and concept, though the price reflects more of a high end cafe if anything. Oh well, good things come at a price don't they?

If you can resist this, well then off with your head. This Crème Brûlée Bomboloni ($8) by PBD is, beyond a doubt, the most memorable doughnut I’ve had this year. As a crème brûlée dessert, it’s got that hard, burnt sugar crust that cracks audibly when you bite (or tear in my case) into it. The custard filling’s smooth, creamy and rich, but not overly heavy or thick so it’s very light on the palate. As a bomboloni, it boasted the quintessential fluffy and buttery dough and a GENEROUS amount of filling. I was a little sad to find the custard pooling into the box, but the thing is there’s sooo much of it you can just dip and dunk the doughnut as you eat along. And I’m proud to share that there was zero wastage — sustainable dining at its finest 🙃 What I found really interesting, is that as the sugar’s being torched and caramelised on the surface some of it melts into the doughnut as well; so when eating the doughnut it tasted extra moist and shiok while still retaining its fluff, structure, and crumb. Also noteworthy is how neither the dough nor the custard was too sweet, so as saccharine as this sounds it’s actually just perfect.

I felt that the custard was a little too cold so it’s definitely stiffer and less oozy compared to my previous takeaway; and perhaps cause it’s freshly piped so the custard didn’t quite have the time to nestle into the dough and work some magic, so I did find the doughnut drier. Not that it was bad; it was still fluffy and tender, but wasn’t quite as moist and shiok as before. Still a fabulous bomboloni nonetheless, I may just let it sit longer before tucking in the next time 😉

This is a definite must-get while you’re here! The perfectly toasted sourdough bread was so crisp and dipping them into the flavorful in-house marinated olive oil with prawns was simply mind-blowingly delicious!

Ending our meal on a sweet note - A beautifully plated dessert that’s refreshing and rich at the same time.

The pork ribs were so tender that they fell off the bone easily without having to use a knife! Coated with a layer of sweet sauce, the pork ribs were very flavorful with a perfect fat-to-lean-meat ratio. The ribs came with a side of pomme puree and charred cauliflower which was simple yet delectable.
