The London Review of Sandwiches

I have started a second blog. This is because I don’t have enough to do already with a job, a PhD, this blog, and you know, a life on the go. BUT, the temptation was just too great; I’ve wanted to read a London sandwich blog for so long and in the end I decided to bite the bullet and write one myself because the chances are if I want it, other people will too. It also means I can justify the vast quantities of sandwiches I eat and I get to go back and visit all the great ‘wiches I’ve discovered over the five or so years I’ve lived in London.

I understand this is a pretty niche area but I take the sandwich very seriously, see. Creating a perfect sandwich is like creating a work of art. I won’t hear otherwise. Readers, I bring you, The London Review of Sandwiches.

  1. Agree with everyone else, such a great idea. Mr LTT and his colleague used to have “Sandwich Club” at work where they bought all their sandwich fillings together and bought fresh bread from the local artisan bakery. I told them they should’ve started a blog but they never got time. Now Mr LTT is self employed he doesn’t have so much time to make great sarnies!

  2. Great plan – this is a necessary blog, and you know what they say – if you want it done well… So I’m really happy you’ve started it up. If you are looking for reccos, then Ca Phe on Clerkenwell Rd does some decent Bahn Mi. Right, I’m off to check it out.

  3. Amazing news; I’m going to save these up for next time I’m home.

    Two sandwiches outside London that you need to try (and which I can firmly say are my two favourites in the world) are:

    1. The Katz Deli “Pastrami Reuben” (New York).

    2. “Bake and Shark” (at Maracas Bay, Trinidad). I get to eat one of these most Saturdays and can firmly say that it is absolutely incredible.

  4. A great sandwich is truly one of the joys in life – great theme for a(nother) blog. Look forward to reading it.

    Can I suggest the bacon one at St John Spitalfields they serve up for breakfast?

    1. Kavey, I really don’t know where I find the time! I guess when you want to do things, you just find it. I hope to inspire you to eat more sandwiches!

  5. Very inspirational. The much neglected/taken-for-granted sarney needs its own stage.

    Will this new blog be available via email updates?

  6. Excellent idea. And while there are some adequate chain sandwich shops (Eat and Pret aren’t that bad in an emergency) there are some really exciting places with fabulous combinations. Bring it on!

  7. This is SUCH a good idea. I’ve been drooling over the various creations on your site for well over a year now and love any excuse to read about food, especially if it involves sandwiching it in lovely bread. Yum. Good luck!
