Finally I am back after 3 days of silence, well it has been a busy week for me with work and also KL Fashion Week. And the after work traffic is getting into my nerves arghhh... Anyway put that aside, so today I am going to kick start with some healthy, hearty and wholesome meal to cheer me up and keep me going. I need energy! What should I eat? Perhaps some sandwiches and salad… well last weekend I create my own sandwich at O’Briens Irish Sandwich Cafe, Publika Solaris Dutamas.

Ehem... Sunshine Kelly reporting at work hehehe...

Ok back to my sandwich making session, it’s quite simple just 3 steps. First step is to choose the bread. Well their breads are baked with specially formulated Irish recipe. There are white bread, wholemeal bread, ciabatta, multigrain, wrappo, wholemeal shamboo and focaccia shambo in the shape of the Shamrock. The Shamrock is the epitome of Ireland and represents good luck thus it is closely associate to O’Briens.

I love the aroma of freshly baked bread and decided on the focaccia shambo. Feel like eating the bread it on its own but with fillings, salads and sauces will definitely heighten then appetite. The next step is to choose the filling hmm… I am spoil of choices.

Let's start to create my own sandwich

After choosing all the ingredients let's start. First cut the bread into half, spread the basil pesto on 1 side, arranged the fillings and salad layer by layer and lastly topped with the cheese make sure it covers all the sides of the bread. Then toast it in the oven for 50 seconds to melt the cheese. Then cut into half.

  4. Wow, it's nice that you can create your own bread and choose the fillings. If given a choice, I would get only the basic ones and not too many ingredients. Smoked salmon and Swiss cheese are enough for my sandwich. :)

  5. I think I am going to enjoy this store. It should be challenging to mix and match which among the different ingredients there would taste good together. Some may be tempting to mix up but not taste good at all.

  8. Compared to burgers, I prefer to eat a sandwich with lots of mayonnaise, cheese and lettuce.

  14. If you were the crew, I would take a lot of time to prepare my sandwich. I like the idea of creating your own sandwich though.

  19. A lot of establishments are now offering this kind of service: make-your-own stuff. It gives the customers the chance to customize according to their preferences and they also get to know how to make stuff on their own. They're also able to appreciate each and every ingredient in the product.
