If there is one food item that is found all over the world, it is a sandwich. The size and style, type of bread, sauces, condiments, and proteins will change depending on the culture. That's the beauty of a sandwich, it changes depending on where you are in the world!
We have selected 10 places in the greater Montreal area to enjoy these handheld mouthwatering sandwiches.
2660 Rue Beaubien E., Montréal, H1Y 1G7
Inspired by the traditional banh mi, they now have two branches: one on Beaubien and another on Duluth East. Many vegetarian choices like the "Auber-Chine" or the "Shiitake".

4675 Boulevard St-Laurent, Montréal, H2T 1R2
Here you can find French tacos with meats cooked in their charcoal oven. You'll find that smoky taste in their sandwiches and they can all be gratinated for a little extra. Several recipes remind you of a nice evening with friends in France such as the "Tommy" with homemade marinated chicken, the Brick Top with multiple slices of cheese, or the "Sol" with shrimp on the board. Adjust the size according to your hunger by taking the medium, large or extra large size.
Located in Verdun and Plateau Mont-Royal, this place is clearly worth a stop and/or a detour. They offer generous and tasty Italian sandwiches with elements from their own garden. With over a dozen choices, choose whether you want a hot or cold recipe. Hot options include chicken parmesan, Italian sausage, or meatballs.
