Not too long ago, I headed to Simply Bread at Cluny Court for (what else but) sandwiches. The bakery is very plain and simple, exactly the sort of place where you can just relax and lose yourself in a good book on a lazy quiet afternoon.

Of course, with a name like that, bread takes centre stage here. There’s a good variety ranging from sourdough granary to rye walnut. If you don’t want to buy a whole loaf home, just take a seat, order a sandwich from the menu and choose whichever bread you like from the display counter.

Smoked salmon would always be my first choice but sadly, that’s not on the menu. So it was tuna salad on sourdough rye ($8.50) instead. I wanted it toasted but the staff advised against it as it’s freshly baked bread meant to be eaten as it is. Basically, this was just water-packed tuna mixed with a little mayonnaise—something I can easily make at home. The sourdough rye, on the other hand, was lovely! Soft and subtly sour with an earthy rye flavour.

The smoked ham and mature cheddar cheese on ciabatta ($9) looked good too! Initially, rustic white was chosen but the staff suggested ciabatta instead as ham+cheese+ciabatta is an ideal match. It’s great that recommendations are so forthcoming so that diners can better appreciate the beauty of bread and sandwiches!

Though the bread is good, it’s going to be a long while before I’ll go back again as I much prefer the bread from Barcook and Cedele. And FYI, to date, my favourite sandwich bakery is still Freshly Baked cuz they make a really mean smoked salmon with tomato confit sandwich that’s out of this world!
