SweetSpot Deli, Marina Bay Sands

SweetSpot Deli, reuben sandwich

Woah, sweet! This (Bay Level, L1-30, The Shoppes at MBS, 10 Bayfront Avenue, tel : +65 6688 8584) was definitely the best one yet and was incidentally also the answer to an indirect question that I had some time back. The mixed thin slices of warm layered Pastrami and corned beef paired with savoury melted Gruy√®re and the Russian slaw for texture....I think you know where I'm getting at. Oh yeah, throw that between buttered & toasted rye as well.  

While this wasn't NY sized, it was a still very generous fillings by local standards. Hmmm....this is a tough one against the hot Reuben from Nassim Hill Bakery. The latter just had that amazing bread which this one didn't, but this pretty much takes the cake for everything else on the middle. Not to mention that it's actually less expensive here.

SweetSpot Deli, pastrami sandwich

The pastrami with mustard on rye paled side by side in comparison. It wasn't a mediocre sandwich per se, but their Reuben really blows this one out of the water.

SweetSpot Deli, matzo ball soup

Matzo ball soup was serviceable sick person's food. But I've had better chicken soup.

SweetSpot Deli, lemon meringue pie

This was an unusual lemon meringue pie/tart that they had. Unusual because of the meringue which was so eggy that we had initially thought that some of the egg flavour came from the lemon curd. Until we scraped the fillings off separately to taste, then realise that all that egg came solely from the meringue. After a while, it was just unsettling considering that the eggy-ness actually powered over the lemon curd.

Nice one, but I think serving food on biodegradable disposable plates and cutlery at a cafe of a "reputable" name is a misfit. Were the sandwiches you had the regular or large version?

Those were large.
