Seeking sustenance in a hurry? Head to one of these excellent eateries serving substantial gourmet sandwiches.
1 As one might expect, Banh Mi Boys specializes in the Vietnamese bahn mi—a sub-like sandwich with fixings like pork and lemongrass, or braised beef cheek. Diners can also get stuffed on steamed baos, Korean tacos and even kimchi fries. 392 Queen Street West, 416-363-0588. See map »
2 When Torontonians just have to have a nice bit of pork shoulder wrapped in proscuitto wrapped in pork belly on a fresh sourdough bun, they visit Porchetta & Co. Feel guilty about all that meat? Make it “healthier” by adding rapini. 825 Dundas St. W., 647-352-6611. See map »
3 Sandwich traditionalists have a new fave in Sliced, which features the likes of peanut butter and jam, ham and swiss, a Caprese salad sammie, and even a decadent lobster BLT. 650 Bay St., 416-971-4000. See map »
