The Moomba Tuckshop, Battery Road

Ham & Swiss Emmenthal Cheese Sandwich

Cool. I'd known about the Moomba for ages but never bothered to go in as I figured that its chi-chi Australian fare would be too fancy for my taste. But when I heard that they had opened a small sandwich shop at the Bank of China building (4 Battery Road #B1-01, 6536-5235), I rushed on over to check it out, especially since neighboring Post Express Deli had shut down.

I liked it. My ham and cheese sandwich tasted like it looked: a bit stingy on the portions but consisting of enough quality ingredients for me to consider this to be one of the better sandwich shops around Singapore (and no, that's not moldy bread by the way - it was tinted green with spinach). Like most places here though, they toast your sandwich by default, so next time I'll have to remember to tell them not to do so...and maybe get a big salad on the side while I'm at it.

I've noticed a lot of places automatically toast your sandwiches and I'm not a fan - I prefer soft bread to the harder toast - scratches my mouth. Having said that, that sandwich does look nice - I did notice the green tint, glad you mentioned the spinach! :)

Post Express Deli has shut down?! That's probably the best sandwich joint in Raffles Place, if not the whole of Singapore!

Hey if you like to eat untoasted bread go try the sandwiches og Freshly Baked by Le Bijoux at Killiney Road. The soft fresh baked bread is really awesome
