An unlikely place to find a decent sandwich at a decent price!

You always find rarest of thing in the most unlikely places. 
In this case a decent sandwich at a decent price. Trust me it is indeed difficult to find. Especially in Fort where the options are expensive Barista which does not necessarily mean good quality or the not so expensive low grade Perera and Sons muck. Of course I found my sandwich haven in the last place one would expect - if you are on a hunt to satisfy your hunger pangs that is - because it was in a tea bar. The Heladiv Tea bar or lounge to be precise. At the Dutch Hospital in Fort.
An interesting side note. I was with a group of visitors from overseas when it was discussed that we should be having lunch at Dutch hospital. The confused/concerned look on their faces was priceless.
If you haven't been to this place you should. It is sad that it has not created any kind of buzz. Especially when compared to all the excitement the fraud Starbucks created. By the way pardon the bad quality pictures it seems I have been shaking with anticipation when clicking.

Anyway, I found the place absolutely calm and tranquil. The décor was unique too. At least it was not a cross between Bawa and Paradise Road. I loved the sofas they had it was made from some kind of foam and absolutely heavenly to sit on. I did not sample any of the beverages or desserts. Both which looked absolutely nice and tempting. However the sandwiches were out of this world. The bread was fresh and fresh and so was the salad which accompanied it. It was simple but you could taste the freshness something you don't experience at Barista. I had tandoori chicken but what was really interesting was the beef sandwich as it looked as if it was made out of corned beef. Next time I am going to try it for sure. 
Another side note. After much guessing I finally found out what kind of restaurant WIP is. It is a German Restaurant. I went there for a meal the other day and the food was excellent though the menu did not hold that much variety. A special mention has to be made of the spare ribs which I had. It was truly out of this world. If you have been to any of these two places do let me know what your experience was like.
