Panini (noun, plural): An Italian
sandwich combining freshly-baked Ciabatta bread
with various vegetables or meats and grilled to
crispy perfection. And it is also a nice, healthy,
European-style lunch alternative that won't empty
your pockets. At Mr. Sandwich, you can choose
your favorite ingredients (smoked salmon, pastrami,
prawn and more) to create your panini or salad.
The sandwiches range from NT$50 to NT$130 and,
for just a few more bucks, you can add on a daily
soup, beverage or tasty Panna Cotta. Mr. Sandwich
himself spent a lot of time in Italy and thus
only uses the best ingredients. The butter is
high-quality and from France, and each bread is
baked individually using extra virgin olive oil.
Don't miss out on the cafe's flavored herbal teas
(NT$55-65). This place is super-convenient for
take-out and also offers delivery in the area,
though there is some seating available inside.
