Making Great Sandwich with O’Briens Irish Sandwich Cafe

How do you make a sandwich?

First you select your type of bread, cut it in half, toast it then fill it with your selected fillings and sauces. Sounds easy right? Well, it is easy and fun as it sounds. I love sandwiches but making them is not something I usually do. The only time I made an effort in making a good sandwich is when I make a grilled cheese sandwich.


But thanks to O’Briens Irish Sandwich Cafe and Seeties, I was able to experience how to make an awesome sandwich like a pro.

After washing my hands and putting on my gloves, I went ahead to work on my sandwich.


I had a hard time cutting my sandwich in half, I thought it was easy hahaha.

… Struggling…
Still struggling (lol)
… Still struggling (lol)

Then the fun part, the placing of my choice fillings and sauces.





Then we toast for few seconds in a very very hot oven.


A little plating here and there.


And here’s the end product of my creation… O’Briens Irish Sandwich ala Reia!

    Sadly, in Malaysia, they don’t serve with Pork Bacons. 🙁 Always get into arguments with O’Brien’s and Subway because of that. Bacons are Pork… Using the name Bacon and have it substitute with Beef or Chicken is just plain wrong.
