This is a really belated post. I think it dates back to April, when I lunched with Vincent in Raffles Place. He took me to this tiny sandwich shop that serves awesome hot sandwiches!
Ok, perhaps, that was an overly bold statement to make for a first visit. But the two subs we shared were really delish.
Smoke Shack is different from other sandwich shops in that they smoke their own meats. Here, you get freshly smoked ham, smoked bacon, smoked lamb, smoked duck…you get the idea.
Now, I’m not a big fan of beef, but the roast beef sandwich really blew my socks off! The star of this mega production was undoubtedly the gorgeously pink slices of tender, juicy bovine flesh, accompanied by a competent supporting cast of ciabatta, sauteed onion, herb butter, lettuce, and tomato.
If I remember correctly, the SmokeShack Roast of the Day is available only on Wednesdays and Fridays.
Sandwich Number 2 wasn’t quite as mind-blowing, but I just had to get it cos me loves smoked duck!
Initially, I was apprehensive of the blue cheese, cos I’m not a fan of pungent cheeses. Fortunately, the entire ensemble was a harmonious blend of textures and sweet, salty flavors. The caramelized apple could have been more caramelized, but that’s just a minor nit-pick.
Well, I’ll definitely be back to try the rest of Smoke Shack’s New York-style sandwiches, which are a rarity here in Singapore. They’ve got Big Apple classics like Reuben (rye bread, corned beef, sauerkraut) and New Yorker (rye bread, pastrami, cheese, coleslaw). The Montivideo (steak, ham, bacon, roasted peppers, mozzarella) looks enticing too.
Most customers pack their sandwiches to go, as it’s a really tiny shop with cramped seating, so come early if you wanna eat in.
