B'Wiched by BIG @ Publika

April 14, 2012

It's a bread story, baby, just say yum: The BIG Group has teased its Facebook fans all week with word that B'Wiched, a sandwich bar, would begin buttering up customers on Friday the 13th inside Ben's Independent Grocer at Publika.

Crab meat brioche with ebiko, Japanese cucumber, romaine lettuce & mayo, hot dog-style (RM20.90). Sandwiches are prepared to order & packed with ingredients, with bread that boasts a fresh-baked feel & fillings that taste flavorsome & seem well-chosen.

Bahn Mi baguette (RM15.90), bursting with char-grilled chicken breast, turkey bacon, pickled carrots, onions, cucumber, coriander & chilies. At first sight, some of these seem similar to sandwiches at Ben's, Plan B & T Forty Two, but choices for the bread & fillings are wider.

Tasting slices of the Reuben toastie, with salted beef, sauerkraut & Russian dressing. Portions might not look princely, but rest assured that hunger pangs can be easily satiated here.

Peanut butter alert! Here's a dessert toastie, stuffed with bananas & peanut butter (RM12.90). Could be made at home, but we like how B'Wiched keeps the bread convincingly crisp on the outside & comfortingly soft within, with plenty of sweetly ripe bananas & sticky peanut butter.

All sandwiches come with The BIG Group's now-familiar four root chips.

Bread massacre! This was what BIG employees were enjoying at their table _ everything from ciabatta to tortilla bread, heaving with tuna, beef meatballs, slow-cooked lamb & cured salmon.
