Munchwich -Chengdu’s 1st sandwich bar- offers a wide selection of fresh bread, club sandwiches, salads, side dishes and much more. The venue was awarded “Best Café/ Bakery 2016” and is on the 2nd floor of the Blue Carribean Plaza – perfect to enjoy beer or Nespresso coffee in a cozy environment. They also do delivery and wholesale for various businesses in the city.
After operating as a take-out and delivery-only sandwich shop for the last year, Munchwich has officially opened with a proper store-front. It does much more than sandwiches now and is one of the most exciting new western food options around. At their shop they bake all bread themselves, and make all sauces, dressings and sides in house. No longer to be seen as just a sandwich shop, they serve tapas style appetizers, sweets, coffee, soup, sides and salads and are also offering an delightful series of weekend brunch options and daily specials like an Israeli hummus platter.
We sampled a series of sandwiches and sides and were most impressed by the Jean Pierre- made with pepper corned beef, gruyere, onion jam, cripsy onions, arugula and truffle aioli. Served on their fresh ciabatta it was toasty, melty, cheesey, savory and delicious. The attention paid here to utilizing a variety of breads, cheeses and homemade sauces across their sandwich menu is something that should be taken note of and celebrated. The sides were a nice change-up from the usual of french fries and garden salads and reflect the diversity of the chef’s experiences and aspirations. The home fries were cubed potatoes served in a tangy, barbecue dressing and the lettuce-less salads were acidic and flavorful making them superb accompaniments to the sandwiches. Simple and creamy, the mashed potatoes wewr also on point. The ‘cappucino’ cream of broccoli soup, served with milk foam on top, was like being greeted with a warm hug after walking in from the brisk weather.
The young Chef Masovlati had a successful career working in high-end restaurants in his home of Israel as well as with Michelin starred chefs in Japan and London before coming to Chengdu. His industry experience and commitment to creating something different in Chengdu’s food scene are both apparent and welcome.
Munchwich is a casual open concept restaurant, with a handful of tables on the main floor and a number of cozier seating areas are being put in upstairs. All sandwiches are made fresh to order at the deli counter and fresh baked bread is also available for purchase or order from the store. Munchwich also has draft beer and serves cocktails, and is open daily from 11am to 2am. While we highly recommended eating in-house to get the best of what the place has to offer, the full menu is also available for delivery.
