sarnies and such

having nourished us with their squeezed-upon-order fruit juices and wheatgrass shots for several years now, boost juice malaysia now wants to keep you on the healthy track with their new food concept, london sandwich co (lsc). much like the very popular pret a manger from london - that perhaps explains their name - lsc offers ready-to-go sandwiches, salads, yogurt cups, muesli bars and fresh fruits for a quick and easy complete meal for city folks who need to be on the move. salad pots will be added to the range soon.

there's a good variety of sandwiches, categorised by bread type: wholemeal, multigrain baguettes, multigrain bread, toasties and also children's choices. choice of fillings range from the familiar and loved - tuna mayo, smoked salmon, bblt (with beef bacon), cheese & tomato - to the more gourmet like prawn cocktail, the ploughmans (australian mature cheddar cheese with english branston pickle) and the londoner (like the previous, but with the addition of turkey ham). for vegetarians, the naked avocado should please as will the cheddar salad on baguette.

there's also a selection of pastries, including danish and brownies that are freshly baked on premise. wash it all down with espresso-based coffees. occasionally, they also stock fresh juices from boost.

...promise of real honest food

we taste-tested the chicken avocado in artisanal multigrain, a hearty serving of fluffy bread holding together well-seasoned pulled roast chicken breast dressed in an english mustard mayonnaise and topped with tomatoes, basil, romaine and lollarossa lettuce.

all of their selections (except baked goods) are displayed in the chiller so you can simply pick, pay and go. sandwiches are wrapped in clear plastic that let you see exactly what you're getting, salads come in cardboard boxes while the toasties are sealed in brown paper bags - they'll reheat them for you. the packaging is simple and projects a clean, fresh image that's matches their promise of 'real honest food'.
