Top five gourmet sandwiches in Vancouver?
Just wondering what your other top 5 gourmet sandwiches are?
Harvesting ideas from this thread! And here's a few more:
I really like the Mexicain at Coco et Olive but they never seem to have it now (only tried the Kits store).
La Ghianda -- I've only tried a couple but both were very worthy.
I've also had some standout panini at Thos. Haas over the years.
On my to try list: the toasted schnitzel sandwich at Ploeger's, chicken schnitzel one at Euro Pastry House, the muffaletta at Cardero Bottega, and the crispy chicken one at Local Public (not sure if any of these qualify as gourmet as I haven't tried them yet).
My list keeps on changing, but currently my favourite dt sandwiches are:
- the prosciutto, pear & brie at Finch's
- the hot smoked salmon sandwich at the Kaboom box food cart
- the shrimp & crab baguette at the dirty apron
- whatever the special is at Meat & Bread
-the La brasserie food cart chicken sandwich
I have noticed an under renovation storefront near davie & howe (i think) that will be offering Philly cheese steak sandwiches and i look forward to trying it when it opens
Top of my list of best sandwiches in Vancouver has to be the bahn mi at Au Petit Cafe - this sandwich will set you free
The porcetta sandwich at Meat and Bread and their meatball sandwich.
The chicken with brie and fig jam at Earl's
A true Montreal smoked meat sandwich - Siegel's bagels probably has the most authentic. I will be giving the new Dunn's (from Montreal) on Seymour St . a try as soon as they open.
Fmed, thanks for starting the separate thread.....I wasn't sure how to do it....:-).
Many of the above are now on my to try list also.. The best schwarma sandwich I\ve tried here is at Abdul's on Kingsway.....spicy really means spicy there. And the Ahi tuna sandwich at Go Fish is also delcious.
My sister tells me there's a great veal sandwich downtown at a cafe but will have to get you the name of the place once I track it down.
I'm not sure if this is considered gourmet in the slightest, but Baguette Time on Davie has really good Chicken sandwiches. They bake fresh bread as you order it (well, they finish it anyhow) and it comes crispy, and light.

I can't believe no one has mentioned la grotta del fromaagio..my favourite sandwich of all time
re: Georgia Strait
I've been to Dunn's once. I'm glad it's not closer to my office because I'd be a 300 lb whale in no time.
It was by far the best smoked meat sandy I've had in Vancouver and it definitely compared to the meat I had in Montreal at Schwartz's.
Fries and salad were excellent also. Highly recommended!
