Me-An and I are big sauce lovers. For us, a good sauce can turn a seemingly dry, lifeless dish into something really yummy. When I learned the existence of Sandwicheese!, a restaurant that serves anything with cheese on it, from Me-An, I couldn’t resist trying it out too.
For a little bit of a background, Sandwicheese! came from the same owners of Banapple, Sandwicheese’s sibling that is a bakery cafe. In fact, Sandwicheese! branch in SM North is located just beside Banapple.
Thus, those family members or friends who can’t survive a meal without rice can order next door and have it served at Sandwicheese! Meanwhile, those who are seated in Banapple who also craved for some of Sandwicheese’s menu items can also order there and have it served while in Banapple. How convenient is that!
Of course, we recommend that when you’re in Sandwicheese! your order from there. It’s because you’ll miss their great tasting sandwiches.
Sandwicheese! feels like dining in a cottage kitchen because of their metal tables, hanging pendant lights, and checkered tiles that remind us of a kitchen, and the usage of a wooden fence as decor reminds us of a cottage. Meanwhile, the deconstructed sandwich art makes us feel that we’re part of the preparation of the sandwiches which all the more adds to the kitchen feeling. It feels befitting for a casual sandwich dining place.
By the way, since Sandwicheese! is a casual dining restaurant, one must go to the counter to order and pay. They’ll give out a number afterwards, then one must patiently wait for his order/s to be served.
Sanwicheese! offers mostly sandwiches and some salads as well.
Additionally, they also offer a sandwich, burger or frankfurter to be turned into a meal.
I went with the HICKORY SHREDDED PORK SANDWICHEESE, PhP 160 (or 3.36 USD) with CHILI & CHEESE NACHOS and 12 OZ. ICED TEA for an additional of PhP 120 (or 2.52 USD).
The shredded pork simmered in Hickory BBQ sauce was put in a garlic cream cheese spreaded cornmeal along with several other toppings which were fresh romaine, diced tomatoes, caramelized onions, cheese sauce and grated mozzarella cheese.
Although it can get quite messy because of the drippy sauces, I love it because of the tender bun and the taste of the mixed barbeque and cheese. Eating it with all the flavors combined was really a treat for me.
As you can see in the photo, they put generous servings of cheese sauce, their delicious Chili con Carne, grated mozzarella cheese and chopped Jalapeños. I like that it was quite large for a side dish. And even though the actual chips aren’t as good as the others that I’ve tried before, the pricing is good, and the chips are crispy and tasty themselves.
On the other hand, Me-An chose something she hasn’t tried before, THE GALLABERGHER, PhP 170 (or 3.57 USD) with SEASONED FRIES and 12 OZ. ICED TEA for an additional of PhP 90 (or 1.89 USD). Her choosing the fries as a side is a no brainer for me since she loves them so much.
The burger wasn’t as big as I expected it to be, but Me-An found it to be quite filling. I had a bite of her burger and the patty itself tastes really meaty with no signs of any extenders or whatsoever. It was placed also on a soft cornmeal bun with fresh romaine, sour cream, BBQ sauce, caramelized onions, cheese sauce and mozzarella cheese. You can see the drippy cheesy goodness oozing from the burger.
When bitten, one can chew the goeey goodness of the mozzarella cheese. Me-An enjoyed her order so much.
Finally, the thick-cut potato fries was fried perfectly and was seasoned with barbecue powder and parsley. Me-An can’t get enough of this since it does not only come with one sauce, but it comes with two sauces. The dipping sauces made the fries more special for her since it were garlic cream cheese and pimiento cream cheese.
Sandwicheese! is Reasonable
Like Banapple, Sandwicheese! is a great value for money restaurant as they offer great food at good prices. Their sandwiches, burgers and the like come with drippy goeey cheesy goodness for cheese and sauce lovers like Me-An and myself. It’s sad though that lactose intolerant people won’t get a chance to try it especially their good tasting cheese sauce. Aside from that, they don’t skimp on ingredients and the iced tea that comes with the meal is actually house-blended (not powder mix). So if you think that their sandwich meal won’t be enough to fill your stomach, you’ll have to think otherwise. Heavy eaters like us got full stomachs after.
