The result for my inability (or lacking in opportunity) to reach Singaporean shores for the past three years brought me revelation on how to make my next visit worthwhile.

Undertaking the task to make my blog promoting more on halal food from time to time gave me a homework to research Singaporean food scene beforehand. I have to say that it gave me so much pleasure that Singapore is more halal-minded than Indonesia and halal certification is even applied in five-starred hotels, which I will share to you in another post.

So, long story short, I was looking for good subs other than the usual Subway – which at times became an irreplaceable choice whenever Indonesians visit other countries because we got none here!

Luckily, Singapore has their own subway chain and already halal-certified by MUIS. Yup, that’s why I decided to visit Yellow Submarines.

Not only that Yellow Submarines came with a neat concept but also tempting choices of subs to try. Immediately I tried the Classic version first but only as ala carte. The Meal version is equipped with fries and soda but I had to skip that part for now. Well, there were other places that I had to try aside from this that day. Haha..

The sub came in awfully uninviting, I had to be honest with that and that’s why I’m bringing you the good looking picture instead. But try to dig in and you will see that what people say about “don’t judge a book by its cover” means a lot here!

The sub was fluffy and lovable. The sliced sirloin was just perfect and you would really ask for more and more. It’s a feeling when you experience a really good pastrami sandwich and that you can’t stop digging in. Unfortunately, there’s no all-you-can-eat restaurant for good steak and pastrami, at least here.

Meanwhile, the melting cheese kicked in and blended well with the caramelized onions as well. You might feel that the cheese may be overpowering at times but oh my God, that was highly addictive for me! Honestly, it was a dangerous choice to give in to such earthly pleasure but for a halal food, it’s even too good to be true, and I’m more than thankful for it!

Despite the slow service, the submarine’s way of saying sorry was just irresistible. I will definitely take my lovely wife to try this one on her first trip ever to Singapore some other time. I hope the standard will be sustained well and I believe Singaporeans are good at that.
