I love sandwiches. I’ve eaten more sandwiches than just about any other food over the course of my life and, as a result of all those years of hard graft, consider myself to be quite good at making them. Putting something tasty and edible between two slices of bread isn’t exactly rocket science but there’s an artistry to making the perfect sandwich that requires an understanding of textures, flavours, and how to make sure all those elements are balanced in harmony. Then again, I would say that when I’m making a sandwich every day, wouldn’t I?
We’ve got plenty of Mob’s Sexiest Sandwich Recipes on our website but if you can’t be bothered going through the rigamarole of buying all the ingredients, you should read on for my list of the best sandwich spots in London where you can have someone else go to all the trouble of constructing a sandwich for you. Now, before anyone goes and makes an official complaint, we haven’t included a lot of specific sandwich-type dishes like wraps in this list – falafel already has its own dedicated guide and the kebab will be getting its dues sometime soon – but have kept the focus on subs, sarnies, baps and anything in that genre of sandwich.
From freshly made bánh mì to weighty ham, egg, and chip-stuffed constructions that’ll dislocate your jaw, this list is full of some serious sandwiches. Happy eating.
