These sandos look deceivingly simple yet they are bursting with flavors. Each portion comes with six pieces. Esoraโ€™s sandos are filled with breaded and deep-fried cutlets of meat or tamago and slathered with a Japanese tartare sauce (homemade mayo, egg, pickles, and balsamic vinegar) and topped with shredded cabbage.

I ordered the ๐‘ฉ๐’๐’‚๐’„๐’Œ ๐‘จ๐’๐’ˆ๐’–๐’” ๐‘ฉ๐’†๐’†๐’‡, ๐‘ฑ๐’‚๐’‘๐’‚๐’๐’†๐’”๐’† ๐‘ท๐’๐’“๐’Œ, ๐‘พ๐’‚๐’ˆ๐’š๐’– ๐‘ท๐’๐’•๐’‚๐’•๐’ ๐‘ช๐’“๐’๐’’๐’–๐’†๐’•๐’•๐’†, and ๐‘ป๐’‚๐’Ž๐’‚๐’ˆ๐’๐’š๐’‚๐’Œ๐’Š. My two favorites are the Japanese Pork and Tamagoyaki (โญ๏ธ4.5/5) followed by the Angus Beef and Wagyu Croquette (โญ๏ธ4/5). The Tamagoyaki was the crowdโ€™s favorite. The egg itself was sweet and so fluffy. The pork katsu is crispy yet juicy and the shiso leaf elevates the flavor.

I had the Spring menu which continues to amaze me with their presentation, cooking, and decoration. Esora is probably the only restaurant in Singapore that goes the extra mile to decorate its dishes. Pictured is their signature dish the ๐‘ญ๐’๐’Š๐’† ๐‘ฎ๐’“๐’‚๐’” ๐‘ด๐’๐’๐’‚๐’Œ๐’‚.

I enjoyed the menchikatsu sando! Itโ€™s basically a soft fluffy potato croquette with specks of minced beef inside. And the standard sandwich topping of shredded lettuce and egg Mayo.

Overall my main gripe (apart from the price and size) is that the sando toppings are all pretty similar and so despite ordering 4 sandos, it tasted all somewhat homogenous. The sandwiches are all pleasant and I donโ€™t dislike them, but I donโ€™t think they warrant all the praises theyโ€™ve gotten. That said, I still want to dine in at Esora!

The tamago sando is not bad. It isnโ€™t really anything life changing. Thereโ€™s fluffy panko-crusted tamagoyaki and the same shredded lettuce egg mayo combi like in every sando. Delicious but not really a must try.

The gyukatsu sando was quite disappointing. Same ingredients as the tonkatsu, but didnโ€™t feel like a thoughtful pairing. The shiso was too overpowering with the beef, and the beef was kind of tough. Iโ€™m not really willing to pay for the $88 omi wagyu to taste the difference either. Wish they had done another flavour for the beef!

I tried Esoraโ€™s sandwiches during the last dine-in ban because of the billions of reviews about how good they are. My verdict is that while they were decently yummy, they werenโ€™t very extraordinary, particularly when you factor in the price and the size of the sandwich. Not really sure why people rave about it so strongly. Itโ€™s a taste of luxury from Esora for sure, but other than that, I canโ€™t see why itโ€™s so appealing. (Iโ€™m sure dining in is a whole other experience though, and I do want to try it.)

That said, my favourite was the tonkatsu. I thought that the floral taste of shiso paired the best with it and the shredded cabbage made me feel like I was eating tonkatsu w rice. The punchy mustard also toned down the flavour of the pork.
