Sarnies Revisited @ Telok Ayer Street

12:00 PM , , 0 Comments

After my first visit, I declared Sarnies a must for good service and great food. Fast forward a year and the crowds seemingly more on a weekend afternoon and the rest of the entry will address the quality of food and service.

I almost ordered exactly the same items off their limited brunch  menu but made the decision to try their famous Sarnies, otherwise known as sandwiches.


Bacon and egg weekender Sarnie with fried eggs, loads of bacon cured by us and tomato relish ($15.90)

Crusty sour dough baked to almost perfection with all the crunching sounds I made and slapped on with tomato relish, bacon and a drippy fried egg. No brainer? Here's the juice on it - immensely satisfying with just 3 of the brunch staples in a single sandwich. 


THE Fry Up: Fried or scrambled eggs, bacon cured by us, a real pork sausage, homemade baked beans, grilled mushrooms, sourdough toast.  ($25.90)

Hangover be gone with this massive fry up - massive enough to shoo the hangover away or so the owners thought. Crispy bacon, a decently "real tasting" pork sausage and delicious toast made this dish rock.


It's more of brunch place than coffee. 

The lowdown on the bad service came when a particular waiter decided to be particularly nice to a group of foreigners and chose to wave us off when we requested for the table to be cleaned. "Waved off" included the hand gesticulating in a heck care manner - to offer better services to a foreigner versus a local has long been debated to death and this very same waiter came back and forth with wrong orders, haphazardly swiped the cloth over the table and repeated hit the chairs with his knickers. Not cool at all and yes, this service glitch did mar the experience a fair bit - for one, the husband has sworn off the place. I may just return for those awesome sarnies. Takeaway next time.
