The PBD crowd favourite returns

If you were a little cut up when you discovered that the new Park Bench Deli all-day menu no longer features the lip-smacking Cubano sandwich, then do we have good news for you. ‘Cause the item that put the diner on the map has gotten its very own dedicated joint near Boat Quay—and now it all makes sense.

Onda, the humble shop which soft launched yesterday (Jul 8), is a hole-in-the-wall, quick service restaurant offering a modest menu of cubano sandwiches, beef hot dogs and fried pork rinds.


So sink your teeth into the Cubano ($16.50) you know and love; it’s jam packed with sweet ham and lechon and oozing Swiss cheese. Some Chicharron aka fried pork rinds will set you back a mere $5 while the Hot Dog ($12) sees a smoked beef frank held in a brioche bun.

For drinks, caffeine enthusiasts can choose from a selection of Cuban-style coffee beverages, including the special La Rosita ($7) which is an iced Cuban coffee with milk and caramel.

Up for a cocktail? Choose anything from the classic whisky Highball ($15) to the unofficial signature, Cuba Libre ($15).


But that’s not all. If we’re lucky enough, the PBD team just might set up another Onda-like, mini sandwich shop somewhere else in the city—but that’s all in due time.

For now, count your lucky stars and head down to 21 Lor Telok for your Cuban sandwich fix.
