Expensive sandwiches that are worth it?

Ok, I know fancy sandwich places charge absurd amounts of cash, but I just spent $11 on a sandwich from Cardullo's in Harvard Sq. that was worth it and then some. It's called the Donald, and it has duck confit, fig spread, and gruyere on a baguette. It ruelz. It's like the sandwich that Henry VIII would eat right after getting remarried.

Any others that merit the steep price?

  1. Hi Rise Bakery in Cambridge is definitely worth it as well.

    IMO, All Star Sandwich Bar is not.

    1. Flour's BLT is amazing. It's not crazy expensive, but definitely pushing it at somewhere around $7.

      1. If you're in harvard square you can't miss the cuban at Chez Henri. More decadent than a quick sandwich, it's like the sandwich Rauol Castro would eat right after taking over the revolution.

          Amen! Had it last night and WOW. It's also ENORMOUS so you can easily share it between two people.

            agreed! I don't even like pickles, and I love that sandwich.

          2. Yes, the cubano at Chez Henri is well worth the steep price. Best sandwich I've had in the Boston area!

            1. Since no one has said it yet, might as well be me: hot lobster roll from Neptune.

                  At neptune its very simple and delightful - chunks of hot lobster meat and butter on a toasted brioche bun. Yummmm.
