A Michelin-Starred Sandwich from Delifrance?

Le Paris-Singapore

Yep - you read that right. That's from the Delifrance chain from across the island that has used things like fake bacon bits in their food. Now they've hired some Michelin-starred chefs to create a sandwich in recognition of their 30 years in Asia.

The description sounded pretty nasty, featuring a puzzling combination of ingredients like oyster sauce, pineapple, and wakame. And while my first few bites elicted expressions of disgust (especially with that pineapple!), I have to admit that it eventually grew on me.

See, the oyster sauce description was a bit misleading. It was actually more of a Thai chili sauce. And once my brain got adjusted to how sweet it was, it actually kind worked with that pickled wakame, as strange as it might be. That pineapple was still really disturbing though.
