The decor at this little cafe located at VivoCity is inviting with all that red. They do say in food psychology that colours like red, orange and yellow stimulate the appetite.
I had a mini grilled chicken baguette which was so good. If I had to eat healthy I could definitely do it eating Vietnamese style sandwiches like these. I liked the crunchy slices of carrots and red pepper and the sandwich has a sweetish sauce that went very well with the grilled chicken.
My partner had the 6 inch Saigon Baugette (S$5.80) which is a ham sandwich, but he wasn’t too impressed. He felt that the portion size in terms of the 3 ham slices was not enough and he also thought the the vegetables were undercooked. He added that the bread was too hard and dry. He might know better than me, as he’s had the real stuff in Vietnam, while I haven’t. I still think I would have a sandwich here again but this time 2 minis as 1 is definitely not enough. It’s only S$2.90, but it’ll leave you hungry unless you’re tiny and waif like and hardly eat anyway.
The bagettes were very neatly and attractively wrapped.
They have a loyalty card system with 1 stamp for every S$6 spent, which means you get a free meal worth S$6.90 but only when you’ve spent S$56. Work that out. Also note that the card expires in 4 weeks so unless you have lunch here 2-3 times a week, you can forget about the free meal. If this was at an office location, it might definitely work. It’s also great if you want to eat healthy and you can have wholemeal bread by adding 40 cents.
This is actually their 3rd location and you can check out their other locations here.
