The Beef Cheek Sandwich was a must to order, and it was mindblowing.  The beef cheek has been slow cooked for 12 hours or more, melted once it hits my tongue.  There were lots of onion wirh rocket which accomplished the beef cheeks splendidly.  I am a slave for sourdough, they even toasted the sourdough, this sandwich is the bomb!  The Chicken salad wasn’t bad at all, the greens were very fresh and crispy, with lots of Mexican chilli black beans which gave off a spicy and tangy taste.  The chicken was very tender and moist.  

Despite being a small joint that focus on handcraft sandwiches, their coffees are great too.  I must mention the iced coffee which has two espresso shot with condensed milk and topped with milo powder.  It is more on the sweet side due to the condense milk, but it taste damn good.  

This place is original and the owner obviously loves what they do.  Both food and coffee is way better than my expectations. I would love to visit again just for the Beef Cheeks Sandwich!

Would I go back again? Yes
