World’s first – Crisp Sandwich shop hits Berlin
A pop-up shop exclusively selling crisp sandwiches – believed to be the first such shop in the world – sold out within two hours of opening its doors.
According to its owners, Simply Crispy in Belfast experienced “overwhelming” demand for cheese and onion baps, with queues snaking out of the door and into the street as lunchtime approached.
The city centre café boasts 35 different flavours of crisp, mostly Tayto crisps but with some Walkers on offer too, as well as a variety of breads and sauces.
Traditional-cut is represented along with novelties like Monster Munch and Frazzles.
The shop is the brainchild of Andrew McMenamin, who transformed his business That Wee Café in Bedford Street after reading a spoof article on satirical website The Ulster Fry.
The Fry posted an articlemocking the opening of the Cereal Killer Café in London – but when the piece went viral, Mr Mcmenamin decided to cash in.
I have been told it is the world’s first.
It is a school thing, people remember it from their school days, it is a classic and it is old-school.
We are riding on the back of the publicity the cereal cafe got in London – if it helps us and Ulster Fry then it’s a good thing.
