Albeit simple, Potters Place's Streaky Beef Sandwich was a good afternoon snack. We thought we would not like the ersatz Toasts but it turned out to be alright. They were thin and crisp... lightly spread with Butter and Mayonnaise... sandwiching Lettuce, Tomatoes and Beef Bacon. The pastries were alright... though they did not quite impress us. Not too sure if we were supposed to bench-mark them with the local Curry Puffs (we did anyway), we thought the flavors (and fragrance) were rather weak and would prefer stronger 'spice' factor. Save for the presentation, the Banana Fritters were nothing out of the ordinary.
