Okay, so I got tired of eating rice and noodles daily for the past two weeks. Having some sandwiches for a change, sounded real good.
I didn’t know of the Wake Up Bar until my friend told me about it. Apparently, while heading to the train station on his way to work, on some mornings he grabs a sandwich on the go for breakfast. It’s “sedap”, he said. So, I figured today would be a good day to give them a try.
They have a kiosk at Kerinchi Train Station (Bangsar Trade Centre) and a cafe? at Gleneagles Hospital, Ampang. So, I suppose their area of coverage is rather wide and not limited to only one spot.
As you can see, the Wake Up Bar offer sandwiches, waffles, rice bowls and noodles. I opted for the sandwiches. What I like about it here is that you have complete control on what goes into your sandwich. You get to pick the filling – the meat, the vegetables and the sauces.
I decided to order two sandwiches and and a waffle for dessert. These were my sandwich combinations ….
The sandwiches were LARGE in size. You’d definitely be getting full halfway through eating them. I was truly satisfied with the sandwiches.
It was really yummy. I am truly satisfied with the sandwiches I received. Here, you will not get a stingy serving of the filling. If you order for chicken ham? Rest assured that they’d give you a thick piece. Chicken floss? They’d stuff a generous portion in. Egg? Thick and fluffy. Tuna flakes? Lots of it too. So, trust me when I say that the sandwich is bound to fill you up real good. “Sedap” indeed. Yummmm!
The waffle though…
Ummmm, I would not order it again. Why?
Firstly, the waffles itself was thick and dry. It had no flavoring, no butter, nothing. Secondly, the filling itself. I requested for a peanut butter + chocolate combination. One half of the waffle had sufficient peanut butter, the other half had none. Thirdly, the filling was half heartedly spread. There was a chunk of chocolate in the middle and very little streaks of chocolate anywhere else. I had to do the spreading myself.
So, awesome sandwiches, questionable waffles. I’d definitely be placing another order for the sandwiches, perhaps even try their rice bowls next.
