The Best Sandwich Shops in the World

The humble sandwich is probably one of the most underrated and unjustly mutilated foods in the entire world. Instead of seeking out superlative sandwiches for our lunch time, we take our business to chains like Jimmy Johns and Subway, who churn out tasteless, insipid meals that smell better than they taste.

Instead of thinking of sandwiches as an easy meal, think of them as an opportunity to challenge your taste buds with unique combinations of delicious, fresh ingredients. The next time you’re traveling, make it your mission to get to some of these amazing sandwich shops, and sample the cuisine of their chefs, who are truly some of the most exciting culinary innovators working today.

Cochon Butcher – New Orleans, Louisiana

New Orleans has a wealth of amazing dishes, and one of the most popular is the muffaletta sandwich, which is closely tied with the shrimp po’boy. While there are plenty of places to get amazing po’boy sandwiches, today we’re going to focus on the muffaletta.

It’s widely known that the best sandwich in the city is made by Cochon Butcher. It’s a wine bar with a butcher counter in the back, and they have a huge menu of amazing sandwiches. They cure all their meats in-house, and the muffaletta — a combination of mortadella, salami, ham, and cheese — is out of this world.

Santropol – Montreal, Canada

Although it may not have reached worldwide popularity (yet!), Santropol is a Montreal institution that prides itself on its honored place in the community.

At Café Santropol, they make all their own bread in house, and the massive loaves don’t last long because their sandwiches are not only popular — they’re huge. Half of the sandwiches on their menu are triple-deckers, which require some intense jaw-unhinging to consume. Make sure to check out their unique offerings like the Duluth (caramelized onion, pear, and cheddar), or the Paspebiac (cream cheese, tomatoes, and tuna salad). In addition to their amazing café, they also have a meals-on-wheels service which feeds hundreds of people daily.

It was called the crazy tomato and it was crazy good

The Best Canadian Hockey Towns

Canada and hockey go together like peanut butter and chocolate. If you didn’t know that, you either don’t watch hockey or you’ve never been to Canada in the wintertime. Just like any sport, hockey has its hotbeds. Coincidentally, each and every one of the cities and towns mentioned in this article claims superiority. Mind you, in entirely different ways. Some cling to a long and storied history. Others flash around their laundry list of NHL alumni, current Hall of Famers, and future Hall of Famers. Today, we’ll take a look at the best of the best. Lace ‘em up, tape up your stick, and put the foil on. These are the best hockey towns in the Great White North.
