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.

After their residency at the Grove House Tavern in Camberwell, you can now grab one of Mondo Sando’s cult sandwiches at their perm home at The White Horse pub in Peckham. Taking inspiration from the food in Miyazaki films, Redwall novels and the Beano, as well as from delis, diners and drinking dens across the world, Mondo’s sandos are stacked with eclectic ingredients and big flavours. Expect the return of faves like The Fauxmoor (rare roast beef, shoestring fries, peppercorn sauce, sweet peppers, rocket & gravy mayo) and CTM Mate (chargrilled chicken tikka thigh, masala sauce, cucumber raita, onion salad and nigella seed & garlic naan chips), alongside sides like Mexican fries with lime & salsa roja, a new vegan Thai larb and a special roast menu. And, of course, everything pairs perfectly with a pint, and luckily The White Horse has plenty of those.

Dom’s Subs may be relatively new to London’s sandwich game having only opened on Hackney Road in 2020 but they made a big impact with their house-baked semolina sub rolls stuffed with epic fillings. The OG site runs collections and deliveries but if you want to get in-store, the Bevis Marks shop (which used to be a Subway, so it’s got the perfect set-up) is the place to go to get your hands on the likes of the Doms Club (with roast turkey, ham, bacon, Swiss cheese & guac), This Spicy D (with schiacciata piccante, salami, ham, nduja mayo & chilli oil) and The Roman (tenderstem broccoli, roast aubergine, marinated artichokes, provolone & romesco).

No prizes for guessing what Mat & Jack’s serve up. Yep big fat sub sandwiches. The London Fields-based shop is a newbie on the sarnie scene but it’s making a big impact with some generously stuffed subs, like the Drunken Chicken Parm, with fried chicken fillets, parmesan & mozzarella and Bloody Mary tabasco sauce; the Italian Job, with gravy-dipped roast beef, taleggio & pickle relish; and the Shroom With A View, with crispy oyster mushrooms, dill pickle, iceberg & ranch. If you like the sound of those, be sure to check their socials to see what weekly specials they’re cooking up. Come hungry and grab a napkin.

SAM SANDWICHES

9 Shepherd's Bush Market, London W12 8DE, UK

Sam Sandwiches is a proper hidden gem inside Shepherd’s Bush Market and these guys are slinging some of the best sarnies around with a menu inspired by Algerian street food flavours. Meat comes in the form of marinated chicken, lamb’s liver, merguez or a fish fillet before being topped off with a fried egg and chips. And these hefty sarnies are also slathered with plenty of harissa and mayo too, just how we like ’em.

Marylebone’s uber-trendy Monocle Café may be small but it’s serving up some mighty sandos, from the katsu chicken, shrimp and pork ones to the classic egg salad slapped between soft Japanese bread. And what makes these better than rest is that they’re served with a side of salt and vinegar crisps (as all good sandwiches should be).

MAX'S SANDWICH SHOP

19 Crouch Hill, London N4 4AP, United Kingdom

Max’s Sandwich Shop, the late night sarnie shop you can get pissed in, might not serve up the cheapest sandwiches in London, but for the comedy value and the fact you probably won’t be able to move after noshing down it’s so worth the £7. Expect quirky names and filthy creations. You can’t go wrong with the classic ham, egg ‘n’ chips but we also love 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.
