The humble sandwich is something that we are all very familiar with, given that we eat one for our lunch pretty much every single day. While most are drab, boring and are not cause to get excited, there are some that go to another level. As ever we have done all the hard work for you in finding the very best sambos in the capital. There are quite a few changes from the 2014 list and some seriously mouthwatering big hitters on the list...

10th. Hatch & Sons - The Blaa

The perfect weekend sandwich that either gets you over a hangover or sets the tone for a wonderful day with a few pints watching sports. All about the unique bread that was in danger of dying out but now becoming well known again. Delish.


9th. Grilled Cheese - Oxmantown

They have a bunch of great sandwiches that all come served in baskets with big flavors. Make sure to get a napkin and enjoy the 2 types of cheese, awesome tomatoes and delicious bread while you try to figure out how they make ingredients taste this good.


8th. Pitt Bros Brisket Roll

This is one for the serious eater and not one that you'd have every day of the week but as a special treat it just doesn't get any better. Huge meaty flavor and a massive portion.


7th. Daily Flatbreads - Brother Hubbard

They now have 2 spots in town with Sister Sadie opening, and any of their sambos could have made the list but the daily flatbreads are exciting, constantly change and often feature super healthy toppings.


6th. Pear And Bacon - The Pepper Pot Cafe

One of those sandwiches than when you first hear of it wouldn't exactly get the heart racing with excitement, but you have to taste it to believe how good it is. You'll be raving about the unique taste you have been missing out on for your whole life.


5th. Porchetta - The Fumbally

Their menu changes on a daily basis but one thing remains on the list and is ordered in huge volume by the faithful. Incredible bap with delicious meat, that is an absolute treat.


4th. The Fish Finger Buttie - Super Miss Sue

A special treat that you are not going to have for lunch every day but head into the cafe at the weekend for brunch of get one of these after a couple of pints in the chipper and you'll never think of fish butties in the same way ever again.


3rd. Home Smoked Turkey - 147 Deli

If there were Oscar Awards for sandwich-making this place would be taking home a couple every year. They've made the humble sambo into an art form with incredible inventions and wonderful bread. Always exciting.


2nd. Green Bench

You only have to look at the queue outside their shop just off Harcourt Street every single day to know how good this place is. Daily sandwiches are advertised on their Facebook page and you'll want to get here early as they sell out fast. Incredible fresh meat options.


1st. Poulet Bonne Femme

I don't care what anybody else says or who wants to fight me about this, because this is hands down the best sandwich in Dublin. You'll get it in Avoca in town or Monkstown or Suffolk Street in town. All sorts of roast meats, and simple beautiful bread. If I had to choose the best I'd probably go for the pork, but they are all amazing to be honest.
