So.cial at Le Magasin's Deli and Custom Butcher (pictures)

I had a hankering for a sandwich. So for lunch I headed to Gastown to have a roast beef sandwich at So.cial. Great value - small (but large) sandwich for $5.50 (CAD).

I have purchased some of their charcuterie in the past - specifically their bresaola and some sausages. Great stuff. They also sell dry-aged beef (at $37/kg not cheap, but at least I know I can get it here in a pinch for those special occasions.)

    1. I was kind of disappointed by my experience there. Did you get any house-made potato chips? They're supposed to be included.

        No they ran out.

        I'll do a review of the Greedy Pig soon. I was there a couple of weeks ago, but forgot my celphone. I actually prefer the Greedy Pig, but I think So.cial is a pretty good sandwich deli (if you are into sandwiches).

            Also in Gastown on Cordova and Cambie. Great roast beef with foie gras and mushroom sandwich. It's closed on Mondays (hence my trip to So.cial instead).

          They never give me chips either! I didn't even know that they were supposed to come with until the guy slipped up one day and offered...

          Best sandwich value here I always get a full and take the other half home for later.
