You can expect some of the worlds finest and most delicious sandwiches tweaked and refined to perfection by Head Chef Mattie Taiano and his strong team of sandwich experts. Oh and make sure you don't miss out on their famous Mac n Cheese balls! Made with a classic Jamaican recipe, the Mac n cheese pie is baked and cut up; then rolled into balls, breaded, and deep-fried to give you a glorious taste of melted Caribbean cheesy heaven!

Head Chef Mattie Taiano is well known from his time as Head Chef at Franks Rooftop & Llewllyn's Herne Hill. After gaining valuable experience in his early years working at award-winning restaurants in the industry such as Anchor & Hope (Southwark) and The Camberwell Arms, Mattie decided to begin his own venture pursuing a personal passion of his in sandwiches.
