Born & Bread has a fun concept, featuring sandwiches from across the globe - Louisianan po' boys, Philly cheesesteaks & English salt beef sandwiches share the spotlight with Cuban medianoche, Austrian schnitzelbrotchen & Vietnamese banh mi.
The sandwich servings are staggering, more than sufficient for sharing; quibblers may lament that Born & Bread's offerings fall short of full authenticity, but it's clear the cafe has devoted effort into creating sandwiches that local folks in this neighbourhood might enjoy. Satisfaction will vary - we thought the batter-fried shrimp in the po' boy (RM23.90; served in a toasted brioche bun instead of the typical baguette) could benefit from more flavoursome seasoning, while the cured topside meat in the salt beef sandwich (RM29.90; smeared with mustard & packed in a soft poppyseed bagel) tasted more like roast beef than meltingly tender brined beef, but neither was a travesty. Note: Our visit here was several months back, but this place showed potential.
