7 45 Issue71 / 2015 FOOD Crisp sandwiCh anyone? The latest niche cafe has hit Belfast and it's bringing back crisp sandwiches. When we say Chip Butty we can sense your smile as you longingly think of your childhood days, before responsibilities and Monday morning rush hour. Andrew McMenamin has set out to capture that nostalgia by opening Simply Crispy in Belfast, a café with only one thing on the menu, an array of crisp sandwiches. The initial idea was a satirical article, by Ulster Fry, part-mocking The Cereal Killer Café which recently opened in London. The article went viral and McMenamin contacted Ulster Fry with intentions of turning the idea into reality with a pop up shop. Simply Crispy has taken off since opening and selling out within two hours on Monday 13th January. It attracted a crowd as mixed as it's crisp flavours ranging from teenagers to businessmen and women. A meal boasts crisp sandwich with choice of bread, soup and fries all for the bargain price of £3.50. The success of both Cereal Café and Simply Crispy clearly demonstrates the power of social media in determining a market and no cost publicity. Niche café's seem to be the way to go and we will undoubtedly be seeing more before the year is out. e a cornerstone of the Peckham community.
