Because there is always a time and a place for a sandwich. Yes the sarnie is not just for lunchtimes ya know, over the past few years they’ve had a real glow-up and the sandwich scene in London has exploded – if you thought sneakers were hyped, you should see the queues that some of these bread babies cause. Eat your way around the city’s top tier sandwiches with a little help from the Sausage Press Sandwich Guide.
Our pick of the bunch includes the smaller-in-size-but-not-in-flavour sandwiches from Sons + Daughters (truffle crisps in a sandwich is always gonna be a winner), the cult subs from Mondo Sando in Peckham and Dom’s Subs in Hackney, Morty & Bob’s classic cheese toasties, and the excellently-named full meals between bread at Max’s Sandwich Shop aka the late night sarnie shop you can get pissed in.
Crunch London is Old Spitalfields Market is serving up experimental (and big) brioche sandwiches, with fillings including flat iron steak, provolone, roasted red peppers, garlic confit & chimichurri and southern fried chicken, lettuce, pickles & allioli, which have been drawing the crowds. And Hackney falafel pitta don Pockets has been so successful (the queues have become legendary amongst East Londoners) that it’s graduating from a stall at Netil Market to a full-on permanent shop.
