18 Dublin Sandwiches You Have To Try Before You Die
Despite an ever growing of options for lunch in Dublin, many of us revert to type and head for the humble ol' sandwich on our lunchtime break.
Yet some are better than others. We wanted to pick out the truly magnificent sandwiches from around the capital.
Take a look below to see how many you've already ticked off the list, and how many are left to try...
1. 147 Deli – Bacon And Cabbage
Easily one of the best sandwich spots in town. They always have a weekly special, like the bacon and cabbage, which is always absolutely to die for.
2. Dough Boys – Meatball Marinara
An incredible spot that is always packed at lunchtime and with very good reason. This sandwich is about as good as life gets.
3. Junior's – Roast Chicken Sandwich
You'll only know how filling, tasty and amazing this sandwich is by trying it. Hardly a secret at this stage, but still one of Dublin's best.
4. Gourmet Food Parlour – The Turkey Reuben
An amazing range of foodie venues across town and the food is just as good in all of them. This is melt in the mouth stuff.
5. Poulet Bonne Femme – Roast Pork With Crackling
You'll find these awesome sandwiches in a couple of Avocas and, by God, are they tasty. Slow roasted meat with awesome bread. Simple but perfect.
6. Pablo Picante – El Magnifico
Think of these as having the best of a burrito, but in a beautiful Mexican bread instead. Packs a huge punch.
7. Grogan's – Cheese & Tomato Toastie
It might only be two slices of bread toasted with some cheese in the middle, but this sandwich was around long before the others and means so much more. An accompanying pint of Guinness is essential.
8. Pitt Bros – Brisket Roll
They don't mess around in here when it comes to portions and this sandwich feels like it could feed about five people. One for the meat lovers.
9. Hatch & Sons – The Breakfast Blaa
It's all about getting the bread here, because this Waterford bap is a huge winner. Also breakfast at lunchtime is always a good thing.
10. The Pepper Pot Café – Pear & Bacon
Everybody thinks this sounds like an unusual combo when they first hear it, but trust us, just try it.
11. Super Miss Sue – The Fish Finger Buttie
Deep fried fish with amazing bread, tartare sauce and crushed peas. Unbelievably good.
12. Green Bench – Any of the daily roast specials
They roast up their meats daily here including chicken, pork and beef. The queues out the door tell you everything you need to know.
13. Ugly Duckling – Steak Sandwich
An old school sandwich where things are cooked fresh and the taste is huge. Not one for those of you on a diet.
14. 3FE – Bacon Buttie
Best known for their coffee, but the food in here is top notch as well. Grab the bacon buttie if you're early enough, but the ham sandwich at lunch is also top notch.
