A lot of credit goes to the genius who decided to slap two pieces of bread together. A sandwich can be whatever you want it to be—as long as you can think it, you can make it

A sandwich knows no boundaries. The brilliant thing about it is the fact that many countries, and the cities within them, have found unique ways to transcend what we would typically think of as an “ordinary” sandwich. Sandwiches are not just your classic BLT or egg and mayo flavours anymore; they can be so much more than that. There are still ongoing debates on what a sandwich should actually constitute, but we won’t get too technical here. In this list of our favourite sandwiches in the Klang Valley, some may surprise you but trust us: they're worth trying.

1. The Versatile One: VCR Stacks 

@vcrstacks

If you’re someone with varied tastes, VCR Stacks brings together sandwiches from near and far with a modern twist. Many of you might be familiar with VCR, and Stacks is just an extension of it, focusing on all things bread. Notable items on their menu include the Reuben Pastrami (for that New York deli feel), the Four Cheese Toastie (a classic comfort food), and the Egg Sando (for all the weebs). Aside from their stacks, another must-try is their various tartines.

2. The Chicken Sandwich: FOWLBOYS

@fowlboyskl

Is a burger a sandwich? We argue the affirmative. It’s hard enough watching endless food trends that are based in America blow up on TikTok, with the most prominent one being Popeye’s Chicken Sandwich back in 2019. The argument of whether Popeyes or Chic-fil-a has better chicken sandwiches seems a little far from reality for most of us. Luckily, Fowlboys has become the perfect alternative for us Malaysians. We can now get a taste of the delicious, buttery Southern-style fried chicken with the Motherclucker or O.G. Sandwich. Better yet, lay it between two fluffy buns and it becomes the perfect chicken sandwich. Fowlboys also allows customers to pick different spice levels (let’s see if you can really tahan that Malaysian spice), all while accompanied by different potato sides.

3. The Sando: Yakuza by Dark

@yakuzabydark

Caviar and foie gras in a sandwich? That is luxurious. Yakuza by Dark oozes decadence by incorporating some of the most highly sought out products in the culinary world. Their most popular dish on the menu is the Yakuza M8 Wagyu Katsu Sando with Foie Gras, a combination that packs a punch. Only available through delivery, this is the perfect sandwich for those that enjoy the finer things in life. Yakuza by Dark pride themselves on using high-quality ingredients that blend together well in a seemingly simplistic sandwich.

Opening Hours: 12pm - 9pm (Closed on Tuesday)

4. The Bahn Mi: Pho King

@phokingkl

The bahn mi is one of the most interesting sandwiches. With its history of French and Vietnamese influences, it is the prime example of fusion done well. This quintessential Vietnamese delicacy is a perfect concoction of acid, fat and heat. Pho King’s Traditional Bahn Mi is a must-try, fusing ingredients like pickled radish and carrots, chilli, red pork, and pate with a crunchy yet fluffy baguette. If the Traditional Bahn Mi isn’t your cup of tea, Pho King offers other variations such as the Grilled Pork and Beef Stew Bahn Mi.

Address: 153, Jalan SS 2/6, SS 2, 47300 Petaling Jaya, Selangor

5. The Eggs Benedict: Antipodean

@asians.eat.food

Betcha didn’t see this one coming. We understand that this might be a controversial choice, but we argue that the eggs benedict is an open-faced breakfast sandwich. Let us know your stance. Either way, the eggs benedict is probably one of the most well-known dishes of the brunch universe—and it’s also arguably the most delicious. Antipodean whips up this brunch classic in two different ways: with bacon or with smoked salmon. If the eggs benedict isn’t the perfect brunch dish, we don’t know what is.

6. The Shawarma: Halab Gate Shawarma & Kebab

@halabgate

This time we make our way to the Middle East, home of the shawarma and kebab. Seeing slabs of meat stacked up on each other, slow roasting on a rotating spit, is a magnificent spectacle. The smell of Middle Eastern spices is enough to make our mouths water. A great sandwich doesn’t need to be stuffed with ingredients. Halab Gate’s shawarma is a great representation of that, blending just four ingredients (chicken/beef, onion, coriander, garlic sauce) to make the perfect sandwich. Less is more, and more isn’t always better.

7. The Kaya and Butter: Thong Kee Cafe

@janicekoh_

How can we forget the classic local delicacy of kaya and butter that has brought up many Malaysians. Every bite of kaya toast from the neighbourhood kopitiam always brings back a sense of nostalgia. Thong Kee, however, does their Kaya and Butter a little differently. Instead of just offering plain bread, they also provide croissant as an option. Who knew this version would be available at a local coffee shop. Needless to say, the combination of a flaky croissant with kaya and butter is a heavenly trio. But no kaya toast meal is complete without the addition of two runny soft-boiled eggs.

Address: 33, Jalan 21/1, Sea Park, 46300 Petaling Jaya, Selangor
