SANDWICHES

Because there is always a time and a place for a sandwich. Here’s our pick of the bunch…

VISIONS CANTEEN

31 New Inn Yard, Shoreditch, London EC2A 3EY, UK

There’s some incredible sandwiches around London at the moment and our new current favourite is, without a doubt, Visions Canteen in Shoreditch. The only bad news is that it’s daytime only but even if you don’t work in the area, you can head over on weekends. And if you do work nearby, then LUCKY you. These sandwiches are beasts – you could probably skip dinner after one of these. Full of pop culture references, the menu changes a hell of a lot but you might just find “The Sergio Zucchini” (grilled courgette, red pesto, provolone, rocket, tomato, and pickled onion) or the “Hannibal Selecta”, (slow roast lamb shoulder, salsa verde, tzatziki, chicory, parmesan, lemon, and breadcrumbs. This is the sandwich shop of your dreams.

SONS + DAUGHTERS

££
Unit 119a Coal Drops Yard, Kings Cross, London N1C 4DQ, UK

Sons + Daughters, the brainchild of James Ramsden and Sam Herlihy (the duo behind award-winning East London restaurant Pidgin) celebrates the sandwich in all its glory. The Coal Drops Yard spot is an ode to all things between two slices of bread. There are six sarnies on the menu and they’re all beasts. We particularly rate the CHICKEN S+DWICH, with Swaledale chicken, pickled cucumber, miso mayo, green sauce, soy-cured parmesan, gem lettuce and wasabi cress on white bloomer, and the PRAWN S+DWICH, with Cornish prawns, S+D mayo, prawn crackers, crispy shallots and cabbage on granary. Remember the crisp sandwiches you’d make as a kid? This is like that except way more mindblowing. Yes the sandwiches here are more expensive than Pret but they still all come in at less than a tenner and when you see the amount that’s stuffed in there, you’ll see they’re worth every penny. If sandwiches are what get you out of bed in the morning, then go venture in this playground, it’s like being given a AAA pass at Glasto. Rock on.

MORTY & BOB’S

49 Coal Drops Yard London N1C 4DQ

Having started out life as grilled cheese enthusiasts, Morty & Bob’s haven’t forgot their roots whilst building their empire. Their crispy bacon grilled cheese, with streaky bacon, tomato and avocado salsa is always a winner, whether it’s morning, noon or night.

SAGER & WILDE

193 Hackney Rd, London E2 8JL, United Kingdom

Who’d of thought one of our favourite sandwiches would be served in an atmospheric wine bar on Hackney Road?
Oh yes at Sager and Wilde you’ll find two epic toasties, one with cheddar and jalapeños and another with cheddar and nduja. Question is, which one will you choose.

LE SWINE

Spitalfields Market, London, United Kingdom

We once said that Le Swine served ‘probably the best bacon butty in town’, and you know what, we are sticking with it. They have taken the humble bacon sandwich to the NEXT LEVEL using thick cut middle bacon, a toasted milk and onion bap and their own Swinez tomato sauce with a fried duck egg. Just look out for the pimped up sixties ambulance. Catch them at Spitalfields market on Thursdays.

GRILL MY CHEESE

Leather Lane Street Market, Leather Lane, London EC1N, United Kingdom

Grill My Cheese might not have a bricks and mortar site but that doesn’t stop them knocking up some absolute bangers with cracking names too. The Justin Brie-Ber, Baby Got Mac and the Jay-Cheese and Bean-Once are pun-tastic but it’s their classic G.M.C – sourdough bread, bechamel sauce and cheese blend that will have you standing at their stall time and time again.

SUB-CULT

82 Watling St, London EC4M 9BX, UK

Born on the streets in a 1970’s camper van, Sub-Cult invite you to have a slice of the American dream with their deep filled subway sarnies. Our fave, the Rodeo Sub, is piled high with bavette steak, truffle mayo, onion jam, chilli oil, and parmesan.

MAX'S SANDWICH SHOP

19 Crouch Hill, Stroud Green, London N4 4AP, United Kingdom

In a nutshell Max’s Sandwich shop is a late night, sarnie shop you can get pissed in. Expect quirky names and filthy creations. Our fave is The Original Gangster, a braised beef, sauerkraut and “incredibly slutty gravy mayo” creation and don’t miss the crispy potatoes coated in crack-like rose harissa yoghurt either.

EGGBREAK

30 Uxbridge St, Kensington, London W8 7TA, United Kingdom

EGGBREAK serves up a posh take on a Maccy D’s McMuffin -need we say anymore? That’s a rare breed sausage patty, fried egg, American cheese and sambal encased in a soft muffin. Hangover = SORTED.
