ISO the best sandwich in YYC

I've been craving for a well made sandwich lately full of meaty or veggie goodness. Whether it be a grilled cheese, philly cheese steak, or banh mi, where is one of the best places to have a mouth watering sandwich?

I'd have to say that one of my favorite so far would be the Philly cheese steak at Sunterra. Although it isnt a true Philly Cheese steak, the tenderness of the beef and the awesome sauce drives me crazy knowing that I cant have one anytime soon.

  1. My best recent sandwich was the grilled cheese at Dairy Lane. I went with the gruyere on sourdough...simple - but perfection.

      This just in!

      All this talk of sandwiches inspired me to drop in at the cowtown beef shack on thursday aft. I was chatting with the owner when he mentioned that he has a brand new smoker that he can leave on all night. I'm told that he should have pulled pork and brisket sandwiches by next week! Could be a great addition to the menu. Drive through BBQ would be awesome if it's done well. I do know the owner takes a lot of pride in his products so I've got faith it will be pretty good even if it takes a few weeks to figure out the subtleties of the new smoker.

    2. The one sandwich I cannot get enough of right now is the Beef and Cheddar at Cowtown Beef Shack. I order it with orions and horseradish. For $8, it is packed with awesomeness.

        Should mention here that Cowtown closes at 5p on weekdays. Not sure about weekends, but get there for lunch on weekdays.

      2. Roast chicken sandwich at Boxwood Cafe! It's the preserved lemon and basil aioli combined with the toothsome ciabatta that makes it. I'm still trying to replicate it at home.

        Kind of on the opposite side of the meat sandwich spectrum from a Philly cheese steak, though.

        1. I love the Ban Mi at Kim Anh subs on 17th Ave, Montreal Smoked Meat at King of Subs in the NE, Lina's Italian Market on Centre St (either a pre-made one or buying the fresh foccacia and hitting up the awesome deli), and just today, I had the Traditional at Mercato on 4th street (with on of Mamma Cathy's huge homemade donuts...) Oh and Peppino in Kensington is always great too...

          1. Keith's Deli makes good, simple sandwiches.
