Meat & Bread is one of those places that is down to earth, trendy, upscale, and cheap all at the same time. It is a sandwich shop in Vancouver (corner of Cambie and Hastings) that is pumping out some of the best sandwiches I’ve ever had the pleasure of putting in my mouth.
I first heard about Meat & Bread while I was living in London just through some friends’ Facebook statuses. My curiosity was then increased when I saw it featured in an issue of Wallpaper* magazine. I knew that as soon as I got back from Vancouver I would have to visit.
The signature sandwich at Meat & Bread is the Porchetta sandwich. Piled between two soft halves of a ciabatta bun are juicy pork, crispy pork skin, and tender pillows of pork fat. All of this amazingness is supported by a house made mustard that is out of this world. Best part aside from the flavour? 8 bucks.
They also feature an additional daily sandwich, feature soup, feature salad, meatball sandwich, and a wicked grilled cheese. It’s a small menu and that’s the beauty of it. Simple food, done right, and affordable.
To the guys and girls of Meat & Bread, thank you for your gift of Sandwich.
