Lord Sandwich (Calgary) [moved from Canada board]

Hi Hounders,

Who makes the tastiest assortment of sandwiches, paninis and/or subs in this city? Please do not include Subway or Quiznos.... been there, done that! Anything from a high end restaurant to a street-side hawker will be investigated thoroughly.

        1. Try Peppino's in Kensington (not bad), Chachi's in TD Square (brand new), or Palace of Eats just off 17th Avenue (smoked meat and steamers). Everyone will rave about Spolumbo's but it's no big deal IMHO.

            Went to Palace of Eats for a Steamer, but no such luck. They don't sell them. Does anyone know where you can get a real Montreal Steamer?

              I think you might have to head to Alberta King of Subs, Bob. Palace used to sell superb steamed dogs w/ shredded cabbage, just delicious, and they stopped when Tubby Dog opened, which to me made no sense since their steamies were those little things you eat 2 of and Tubby's are of course grilled dogs that are meals in themselves.

          2. The best Italian sandwich I've ever had in my life was at Caffe Mauro (Sal's) on 1st St and 8th Ave downtown. Sal is a genius with peppers and eggplant. I really think his sandwiches blow Peppino's out of the water. Get the calabrese and prosciutto with everything on it - great on baquette or foccacia.

              In fact, I just had the calabrese and provolone on baguette for lunch and it was excellent. Highly recommended.

                Thanks to you Chowhounders, I had sandwiches at Caffe Mauro twice last week! A little steep at $10.25 but the ingredients are quality. I like the calabrese & hot capicolla with provolone, mushrooms, peppers & jalapeno spread on Focaccia. A brought it back to work and everyone walking back asked where I got it from!

                Its too bad they don't have a hot salami, the hot capicolla lacks kick. I also tried one on a French baguette but its really thin so it falls apart, and I don't like crispy breads (hurts the top of the mouth). I'll try the meatball next!
