South of 14th St. sandwich tour

I'm doing a south of 14th St. sandwich tour on Saturday with a friend and would appreciate some recommendations. I recently tried, and loved, the following: the duck confit sandwich at Blue Ribbon Market; the brook trout BLT at Mary's; the porchetta panini at Il Buco and Despana's "Picante" sandwich.

I now have on tap:

The lamb with prune-hyssop butter at Savoy
The pork rilletes sandwich at Blue Ribbon Market
One of the ssam's at the new Momofuku outlet

What else should I consider? Are there any must-try items at Bread and Inoteca?

        Are you referring to the chinese mustard greens sandwiched between two sesame flatbread?

          I don't know what it is but I saw it being sold outside a little shop at 75 E Broadway. It is, as you said, under the bridge.

        3. vietnamese samiches.... banh mi so (on broome near elizabeth).

          1. Banh Mi Saigon, Mott St. between Grand and Hester (crystal and jewelry shop in front, lunch counter in back).

            Also, not to ignore the obvious: Pastrami at Katz's.
