160) The Hangar: Institution Of Coffee, Sarnies & Salads At Arab Street
It is never enough when it comes to having good stuff enough, isn’t it? I am referring to The Hangar, a relatively new kid-on-the-block at Kampong Glam neighbourhood. Pav who was previously a co-owner of Sarnies at Telok Ayer, is the brain child of The Hangar situated along Arab Street.
Meet Pav, one of the coolest cafe owners I’ve met so far.
Grubs served here are mainly mouth-watering sarnies and salads, while coffee and craft beers as beverages.
And some healthy home-made blended smoothie.
What sets The Hangar apart are their assortment and unique sandwiches. On top of that, there are also occasional surprises off their menu such as the Sheikh’s delight ($18): a slow-cooked lamb shoulder spiced stew, which I ordered.
True to Pav’s words, the lamb meat was succulent and fully embodied with spices (not forgetting the mild gaminess).
On the other hand, Patricia order the Pulled Pork ($13): 12 hour slow cooked pork with secret spices.
Both were delightful! Sandwiches are served on Sourdough with a thin layer of Wasabi Mayo to give that extra “kick”. Having said that, for someone who refrains wasabi at all cost, I actually thought it complimented the sandwich really well.
Coffee ($5) pulled with Raging Elephant Blend was full-bodied, earthy and has mango tropical notes. Loved every sip!
Dwelling deeper about the coffee, Pav introduced other blends such as Bali Energy and Rowdy Marmalade which are meticulously roasted by him.
Always fascinated and drawn to industrial light bulbs .
I was informed that he will introduce Vietnamese beans as well. Looking forward to it on my next visit to this laid back industrial themed cafe!
