Born & Bread @ Titiwangsa

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.

  2. So, this cafe is born and bred here? ^_* My amateur taste buds probably wouldn't be able to differentiate between a brined beef and a roast beef sandwich...wakakakaka! :D

  3. Love the play with the words, creative. Usually I am not into bread but I'm for thick, huge sandwiches with lots of stuff inside, wouldn't mind trying the ones here.

    1. Suituapui: yeah, as long as the proportion of bread vs fillings is well thought out, and both the bread and the fillings are of good quality, i'd order the sandwich! :D

  4. I love sandwiches! Time to breakaway from Subway and try something different. The sandwiches here appear to be hefty and loaded.
