Sandwich Shop by Plato Wraps

Humans are visual creatures so when you are trying to make a good impression, being attractive is the key. The same principle applies in food establishments and other places of business. You create a beautiful ambiance, you attract people. It’s the exact thing that led me to the Sandwich Shop by Plato Wraps at the SM Jazz Mall. In this food adventure though, I learned that looks is not everything.


Sandwich Shop is visually appealing, Instagram-worthy even. It’s a marriage between vintage and modern themes; the gray and brown tones, that old telephone at the counter, the round mirrors on the wall, wooden furniture, the faux plants, modern lighting fixtures, and the cardboard letter decors all made for an impressive interior.

I loved the interiors, not the food. I ordered a pasta dish called, Tuna and Capers (PHP150). It came with two pieces of crisp bread, so thin it would remind you of potato chips. The pasta itself was dry, too salty, and has that sharp capers flavor. It was actually filled with capers, so that should explain it, but I don’t eat capers so there goes the problem. I spent some time taking them off my pasta. It tasted wrong in so many levels that I hated myself for ordering it.

My friend ordered Moji Milk Tea (PHP 80). It tasted just like your ordinary milk tea, only it’s served in a mason jar.

The Polloslab Sandwich (PHP 150) is the only thing that passed to my liking. It comes with a salad too, only this wasn’t my order so I didn’t get to enjoy it that much.

It took time and some inner scolding from myself to finish the pasta. Yes, I didn’t get to order much from the menu so I couldn’t give you a comprehensive review. There’s a possibility I just missed the best food that they could offer. If you ask me though, I may not go back again.

    The pasta looks so sad! If only their food matched their tasteful interiors.

    Great interior! I was already drawn by the Drip Coffee signage. I’m now wondering how big their salad potion is if it’s not a side to the sandwich. 🙂

    Uhm, i think the pea-sized green things you were referring to as olives are actually capers (they’re different and you said you ordered Tuna and Capers). Capers, like olives, are salty because they are cured with salt or else they would be bitter. But i’d rather eat an olive than a caper so i would probably end up picking them out from the dish too. 🙂 The chicken sandwich looks promising though.
