, while kuya

of adults’ eyes, Sandwicheese

has already gained for the family
’s renown, Sandwicheese
takes it upon itself to continue, and even surpass, to “serve the tastiest and heartiest.” According to Jimenez, little brother has not disappointed as positive
feedback is on the same level as kuya’s
Keeping true to the family’s prominence as being worth it, Sandwicheese
has earned great reviews
from several bloggers, much like kuya’s
own beginnings. “Sandwicheese has reasonably-priced dishes, and their food is worth the price,” said blog yummydatenight.tumblr.com.
Furthermore, continuing Banapple
’s distinction of quirkiness, Sandwicheese
is uniquely the family’s as well: delectable home-cooking smell, warm lighting
, comfy seating
, relaxed sound
and overall steady vibes. As thepickiesteater.net put it, “Sandwicheese is a cozy nook with a refreshing and homey feeling.”
With a role model to both emulate and challenge, Sandwicheese
now sets out to live up to the family
name. Still with help on the business front from Daddy GJ and on the kitchen
front from Mommy Maricel, of course.
And as brotherhoods
always go, big brother Banapple
may have all the renown at present, but sooner than later, youth will be served. In this case, literally and figuratively, by little brother Sandwicheese
