Prepare to get gloriously messy with your sarnies
The best part about sandwiches is that they can be eaten at any time of the day, be it for a hearty breakfast, light lunch, or an afternoon snack. This is just as well because with the addition of Stack, a new Halal and Muslim-owned sandwich cafe in Bugis, you’re going to want to eat their sandwiches all day, every day.
Located just a quick 8-minute walk away from Bugis MRT, Stack is housed in co-sharing space Camelia & Co. Awashed in bright cheery hues that lift your mood instantly and double as a good backdrop for that #foodporn shot of your sandwich, the cafe is spacious enough to fit a sizeable crowd too, so you don’t have to worry about not being able to find seats!
One of the best things about Stack is the sheer variety of flavours and ingredients that they offer, and their menu consists of an impressive selection of savoury, sweet, spicy, and non-meat options. Even the bread they use range from sourdough, multigrain, rye, and Pullman loaves, to bagels and french toasts!
Almost everything is freshly made in-house, from the baking of the bread to the whipping up of the sauces and fillings. If you’re unsure of what to try first, here are some of their staff recommendations:
Chunky AF ($15)
Opt for the Chunky AF if you’re a meat lover! Made with toasted garlic bagels, squashed lamb meatballs, garden greens, roasted beets and eggplants, and a generous spread of tzatziki and savoury peanut butter hummus, it’s juicy, comforting, and satisfying meat fix.
The nutty hummus also adds to the overall creaminess of the sandwich too, and don’t worry about the distinct gaminess of mutton either – it’s hardly noticeable thanks to all the refreshing greens!
The Makcik ($13)
For something local-inspired, make sure to order The Makcik. It’s one of their best-sellers so far thanks to the winning combination of fluffy rye bread, homemade beef rendang, juicy bruised tomatoes, pickled onions, and garden greens!
There’s also garlic aioli and fresh jalapeños in it for that added punch of spice, just like how your own makcik’s beef rendang would have, and only tri-tip meat is used, which ensures lean, tender, and extremely flavourful meat.
Sleepy Nonna ($9)
If you’re craving for something sweet, make a beeline for the Sleepy Nonna. Inspired by how nonnas, which is Italian for “grandmothers”, can whip up something delicious simply by throwing together whatever they can find in the fridge for you when you’re having late-night hunger pangs, this decadent dessert toast is made with french toast and cinnamon, ripened banana, crushed Oreos, a large dose of Nutella, and swiss cheese.
It might sound like an odd combination, but the savoury flavour of the swiss cheese helps to cut through and balance out the gooey sweetness of the other ingredients!
A modest beverage menu that covers the basic staples like Black Coffee, White Coffee, Cold Brew Coffee, and Cold Brew Tea is also available, and while Stack plans to expand their coffee selection further in the near future, they currently offer a mild and sweet Batavia blend that boasts subtle chocolate notes from local coffee roasters Dutch Colony Coffee Co.
Officially opening their doors on 18th November, Stack will be launching an all-day Coffee and Bagel combo for just $5.90 on top of their current offerings. Perfect as a grab-and-go fuel if you’re in a rush, you’ll be able to choose from yet-to-release spreads like Blueberry Cream Cheese, Garlic Rosemary Butter, Speculoos Butter, and Strawberry Basil Jam!
