Advice: Order at the counter, sit anywhere.
This is a sandwich bar that takes the sandwich to whole new level raising the bar high, known as Sandos, their savoury sandwiches are made with house-made thick waffles then filled with all sorts of interesting combinations many with an Asian twist. I’ve visited a couple of times, having tried the Kachan Karaage ($7.99) waffle sandwich filled with ginger fried chicken & Asian slaw which is their version of a chicken and waffle dish, along with a side of the tasty Nori Chips.
For dessert there is a range of Sweet Sandos, I have had the outstanding Japanese inspired Teri-Vani ($6.99) waffle filled with soft serve vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, and Teriyaki sauce. There are also more traditional desserts with a twist such as the cheesecake and Boston cream pie waffles and you can always add some of the soft serve ice cream and make it just a bit more indulgent.
Since they are also known as a milk bar, they feature a wide range of milkshakes and yogi milks, I had one of the special milkshakes, the Matcha Milk Shake ($5.99), they also offer tea and other beverages including beer. I say don’t go with a regular sando here, choose something out of the ordinary and enjoy!
