Sandwiches are a common-thread dish that literally every culture and cuisine in the world shares. They may come in different shapes, sizes, fillings and what not, but at the heart of it, a sandwich is basically bread, sauce and meat (sometimes veggies too).
Crafting a great sandwich, let alone a decent one, is not as easy as it sounds. You’ve got to balance textures and flavours, moistness and crunch. Everything, from the type of bread you choose, to the way you decide to prepare your proteins, your pickled elements and your vegetables, they all require careful thought in order to yield satisfying results.
Nestled within Camelia & Co, newly-opened Stack is a Muslim-owned sandwich parlour that serves up tasty, hearty and photo-worthy sandwiches. Creativity and a ballsy attitude are key attributes that have led them to come up with so many of their bestsellers.

Dim sum normally refers to little steamer baskets with 3-4 bite-sized delicious morsels in it, but beyond the food itself, dim sum is also a culture in itself. Linked with yumcha, it’s normally the act of getting together with friends and family over breakfast or brunch.
