An American brand which claims credit for the world’s first submarine sandwich has opened its first Asian store, and yes, Singapore, that means us.
Visitors can get a bite of signature Blimpie subs in Tampines. That means classic subs, paninis, or wraps, with salads to come at a later date.
What’s a Blimpie? Think Subway, but with a different name and a fraction of the storefronts globally.
Customers can choose from a selection of breads including white, wheat, olive, or parmesan before picking mains such as turkey breast, roast beef, beef salami, and more. Sandwiches come in two sizes.
Well, how much are they? Two Blimpie fan faves are the Meatball Hero (S$9.50- S$15.50) and the Philly Cheesesteak (S$10.50- S$18.50 large).
Blimpie’s traveled a long road and changed ownership numerous times since its 1964 origins in the U.S. state of New Jersey.
Blimpie Singapore is a joint venture between American restaurant group Kahala Brands, a wholly-owned subsidiary of MTY Food Group, and Singapore’s Deelish Brands.
Stores in Singapore will have distinct menus with items adapted especially for the halal consumer.
The store is open 11am to 10pm daily at Tampines Food Co. 10, a community of restaurants in Tampines at 10 Tampines North Drive 4.
