Hung Rui Chen (洪瑞珍) has a sign above their shop that says "Taiwan No. 1 Sandwich", so naturally we wanted to try for ourselves. However, there was a little problem with the staff and their service.
Long story short, we were sent out into the rain by a sandwich shop, and we didn't even get to try the sandwich. It really put a damper on the whole mood.
Luckily, there was a 2nd sandwich we purchased in one of our bags, so we took the wrapper off at home, and that's the one we used for this review. Basically, the sandwich was okay, but the service we experienced that day was quite confusing.
So, here is the big question: If I was dying, and I needed to choose my "last sandwich", would I choose one from Hung Rui Chen?
The answer is "No". But, we have high standards and not every sandwich makes our Last Sandwich List.
To be perfectly frank, the No. 1 sandwich in Taiwan comes from Toasteria Cafe', and Hung Rui Chen (洪瑞珍) would not even be in our Top 10. I am very curious why they put "Taiwan's No. 1 Sandwich" on all of their advertising, and will update this article if I ever get an answer to that question.
Ending on a positive note, the restaurant's atmosphere was very pleasant, and the counter and floors were very clean. I feel safe eating their food, and it seems very sanitary.
