Pre-made sandwiches are often gross. But thankfully not at Sliced, where they’re insanely fresh.
There’s a massive selection of inventive items, but you’ve got to be quick – I missed the Lobster BLT and Moroccan Chicken sandwich.
An innovative feature is Sliced’s half sandwich. Pair it with one of the eatery’s salads or Ravi soups, or do as I did and get two different halves to keep you from sandwich ennui.
There isn’t much tuna to speak of on my Half Lemony Tuna ($4.75), which isn’t lemony at all, but the Full Shrimp & Avocado ($9.75) is simply, nicely composed with watercress and mayo.
The Half Brick Lane Chicken ($4.75) with big juicy cubes of curry chicken blended with sultana raisins, mango, toasted cashews and topped with baby spinach is fantastic. The soft bread can’t contain it though – filling spills out everywhere.
Still, pre-made sandwiches just got a serious upgrade.
