World's best sandwich is from Montreal and not what you are expecting, but close...
Go figure ...

I really have to find the time to try it one day.
its not trendy, artisinal and its pretty inexpensive...plus its a humble place serving simple food that tastes good. the place hasn't been renovated or changed in decades and its still charming and has lots of character *and* its so popular that they had to finally start to open on Saturdays. plenty of chefs and chefy types don't necessarily eat or seek out the fanciest or most complex food in their spare moments.
Big News indeed! 292 like on facebook and 157 tweet.
That makes it a official list for the BEST in the world? Are you kidding me?
Great PR for Montreal but how about a real poll and not a chef"s suggestion.
How about we start a chowhound list of the Best sandwiches in the world?
Now that I think about it, the national sandwich of Spain is jamon iberico...
Not that the squid sammy would be bad, but the choice might piss off a Spaniard or two - plus it was picked by an Italian American.
I think the article might have been better titled as "Unique Sandwiches From Around the World" instead of "Best...".
I think the article might have been better titled as "A bunch of sandwiches picked by a random list of food celebrities".
I'm not so sure about jamon iberico being the national sandwich of Spain. Jamon iberico being a luxury product, people tend to eat it on its own or as part of a "plato de ibericos". Sandwiches are more often made from jamon serrano.
The bocadillo de calamares is the Madrid equivalent of our smoked-meat sandwich. although I believe the fried version is more common the "en su tinta". I don't think Spain has a national sandwich. I would be surprised if the various autonomous regions could ever agree on one in particular.
