Sandwiches usually fall under the category of snacks and light refreshments. However, when I come across a really good one, I simply can’t resist making a whole meal out of it! And there are so many great cafés and bistros in Bangalore where this has happened to me, and quite often too. Here are my picks of some of the best sandwiches in Bangalore:
The “B.E.L.T.” @ The Hole In The Wall Café
The B.E.L.T. is an enjoyable little twist to the classic bacon-lettuce-tomato combo, with the addition of fried eggs! Who doesn’t love juicy bacon? In this particular version, you get a grilled sandwich with a scrumptious crust on the bread – a simple traditional favourite with the added goodness of eggs.
Open Chicken Sandwich @ The Ants Café
The jalapeño peppers really add some zing to this sandwich. But what really makes it is the cheese and olives combo. You can even request them to add two different cheeses for a more flavourful sandwich. The extra olives really add a great texture to the sandwich. All in all, I highly recommend this customisable option!
The Yacht Club Kejriwal @ Boondock Bistro
This is a legendary dish from the famous Bombay Yacht Club. An extremely simple yet elegant sandwich that includes eggs, bread toast and a spicy cheese spread with chillies. It is often the simplest of recipes that make for the most memorable meals. And in the case of sandwiches, this spicy Mumbai import at Boondock Bistro really does make the grade!
A fusion sandwich at Krazzy Folds combines fish with Mexican sauces, Chinese veggies and Italian bread – what’s not to love? At the heart of it is, of course, the delicious fishy goodness of Mahi-Mahi. The spicy chipotle mayo complements the fish, while the fresh veggies add to the overall texture. The Italian ciabatta bread gives this sandwich a nice crunchy texture making it an innovative option for those who love trying new foods.
Croque-Monsieur/Madame @ Café Noir
This is a humongous sandwich meal at Café Noir is served along with French fries and salad. The filling is basically ham and béchamel sauce, with extra cheesiness guaranteed with a delicious topping of Emmental cheese. If you want to add further sunshine to your dish, order the Madame version to get a fried egg topping, sunny side up, of course!
