The World’s First Crisp Sandwich Café, Simply Crispy, Is Now Open For Business
And it’s being received a lot better than Shoreditch’s cereal café…
The world’s first-ever café selling only crisp sandwiches has opened in Belfast, after a spoof article by parody site The Ulster Fry caught the eye of That Wee Café owner Andrew McMenamin, and Simply Crispy became a reality.
The Ulster Fry’s article came after they heard about London’s Cereal Killer Café, which only sells cereal, and caused a media storm on opening due to supposed overpricing. You can read what we had to say about that here.
However, the satire was received so well – with people on Facebook and Twitter thinking Simply Crispy was real and dying to visit – that Andrew saw an opportunity, and rebranded his café as of Monday 12th January.
So what does one get for their money? Well, there’s a simple three-step process to building your perfect crisp sarnie:
1. Choose your bread from the options Plain Loaf, Nutty Krust or Belfast Bap.
2. Choose any two packets of crisps from a selection of 35 brands.
3. Add cheese and/or ham for an extra 50p each (optional).
Priced from £3.50, every Simply Crispy sandwich is served with fries and soup, complete with Monster Munch croutons.
While the crisp brands on offer include Irish favourites Tayto, Space Raiders and Wotsits, our minds have been wandering towards all the crisp sandwich combinations we could come up with, should there be no limit to the flavours available… Pringles and Monster Munch mash-up, anyone?
