If you want the best sandwich in the world, come to Malaysia

A sandwich made with a dash of the humble kunyit (turmeric) by Malaysian chef Darren Chin was named the Best Sandwich in the World at the recent Delifrance Sandwich World Cup competition in France.

Darren's father David Chin, 60, said his son beat eight other participants in the sandwich-making competition.

“It is an achievement the sandwich is not a staple food here, but we can still make the best sandwich in the world,” he told The Star yesterday.

The Sandwich World Cup, which was organised by cafe-bakery chain Delifrance, took place on Feb 14 at the Paris School of Bakery and Pastry, and eight international entrants presented their sandwiches before a panel of international culinary experts.
