Best Sandwiches in Winnipeg: the bánh mì at Viva Restaurant

Sandwich lore contends that the bread-bound dish was invented by John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich, as a one-handed solution to sustenance while playing cards. While the historical accuracy of this is contested, the sandwich’s mobility and versatility are undeniably universal. After much lifting and chewing, we’ve selected the best five sandwich spots in Winnipeg, listed here.
