@samwitchsg is a fortnight old (at time of writing) sandwich shop that currently only serves two sandwiches: a slow cooked shredded chicken sandwich, and this beautiful beef pastrami sandwich. As for why it’s called Samwitch, well, one of the three women running the place is named Sam. No surprises there.⠀

At $10.60 nett for this sandwich, a tiny tub of coleslaw, and a cup of either amazing American sweet tea that’s ravishingly refreshing or ice lemon tea, it’s an acceptable deal. The pastrami, which is slow cooked till it falls apart with minimal convincing, is a little underseasoned on its own. The brilliant brisket is spiced with all the prerequisite spices that make a pastrami, but the flavours are very subtle & are quite shy to reveal themselves to your tastebuds.⠀

However, this was balanced out with an ample application of smoky barbecue sauce onto one half of the sandwich. The mountain of meat that was piled between the bread was definitely the selling point here, and as mentioned before, the tender meat was amped up with the savoury BBQ sauce which made for a delicious eating experience. That, and the slices of sharp pickles, and the shredded cheese. Admittedly the cheese could’ve been melted more, but it ain’t too bad for a start.⠀

For all my Muslim ladies & gentlemen out there, I’m sorry but no, Samwitch has no intentions of going halal yet even though they use neither pork nor lard in their preparations & recipes. They are looking to expand their menu sometime soon though, so I’ll definitely be watching them. In a non-creepy way of course.
