best bread for sandwiches
i have been trying to find a really good whole wheat bread in los angeles. I used to love the poppyseed whole wheat bread at Trader Joes but they discontinued it.
What would your recommendation be in town for a really good whole wheat bread, or multigrain bread that is good for making sandwiches? Which store/ bakery and which bread/ I will want it to be already sliced.
I like the La Brea Bakery whole wheat/whole grain, whatever it's called from Costco because they finish bake it in the store and it is always fresh and often warm from the oven. $3.99/2loaves!
Commercially, I love Sara Lee Honey Wheat.
Restaurant: Polly's Pie's Cracked Wheat. Thick and delicious.

I like the Trader Joe's 8 + 2 Grain bread for sandwiches. Earthy with some texture and whole wheat flavor, but fairly light -- good plain, toasted, or grilled. Less than $2 for a 24-oz loaf.
Much against my usual preferences, I really like the TJ's flourless sprouted wheat bread for sandwiches. Never thought I would (except for things like PB&J), being so fond of both sourdough and rye, but when we were doing some serious refined-carbs cutting we bought nothing but the sprouted wheat, and I found I really like it for both toast and just about any kind of sandwich. Makes great grilled ham & cheese. Less than $3/loaf, too.
