For the first few weeks of lockdown, one of the benefits of working from home was being able to knock up our own lunches. Many, many weeks in and that joy has seriously palled. So here who's delivering more interesting sandwiches around London for you to order.


arrosqdPressed Cuban - Dominique Ansel Bakery

It's made with slow-braised pork shoulder seasoned with garlic and marjoram, thinly sliced York ham, melted Swiss cheese, mustard, and pickles, served on focaccia and pressed until crispy, with housemade fries on the side.

Ekte - SmorrebrodSmorrebrod selection - Ekte

Where: 2-8 Bloomberg Arcade, London EC4N 8AR

Choose from meat options like Aged Beef from Glenarm estate, celeriac and horseradish remoulade, crispy onion & Watercress or vegan choices like Grilled Celeriac & Wild Garlic - but you might want to save the curried herring to when you’re not in an open office.

Lockdown toastie - KappacaseinLockdown Toastie - Kappacasein

Where: 1 Stoney Street, London SE1 9AA

It’s lockdown and you’ve survived yet another week of Zoom work meetings and prescribed exercise. What better way to celebrate the Fri-yay feeling (yes we used it - and no, not sorry) than ordering this once-a-week special from Kappacasein. The Lockdown Toastie consists of Montgomery cheddar, Ogleshield, London raclette, onions and leeks toasted in Poilane sourdough. The only problem is that you need to be pretty close to Borough to be within their catchment area.

How to order:  Email to order (Fridays only 12-1pm - Free delivery within a mile of SE1 9AA)

More info: Follow them on Instagram @kappacasein


Banh Mi - Keu DeliSmoky Aubergine Banh Mi - Keu Deli

Where: Shoreditch and Soho

All the banh mi offerings at Keu are pretty strong, but for a veggie take, their Smoky Aubergine Banh Mi edges ahead - stuffed with grilled aubergine, mushrooms, scallion oil and organic tofu it’s got everything a plant-forward sandwich lover could ask for.

How to order: Via Deliveroo for Soho or Shoreditch.

Iberica bocadillo - LlerenaIberica bocadillo - Llerena

Where: 167 Upper Street, London  N1 1US

As it looks like being increasingly unlikely that we’re going to be heading to Spain anytime soon, this Islington bocadillo helps ease the pain. Llerena’s jamon sandwich is a  sourdough baguette packed with wafer-thin Jamon Iberico and fresh tomato. Pour yourself an ice-cold Estrella from the fridge, and make like you’re in Madrid.

How to order: Via Deliveroo.

More info: Follow them on Instagram @llerena.ibericotapasbar.


OrasayFried haddock sandwich - Orasay

Where: 31 Kensington Park Rd, Notting Hill, London W11 2EU

Jackson Boxer’s sandwich game has been extremely strong since he reopened both Orasay and Brunswick House for delivery. Each restaurant has a veggie, meat and fish option but it’s Orasay’s luxe take on the fish finger sarnie - fried haddock with white cabbage, sriracha and tartare sauce - that has our name on it. 

How to order: Via their website

Le RelaisLa Baguette - Le Relais de Venise

Where: 120 Marylebone Ln, Marylebone, London W1U 2QG

Who would have thought that a simple steak sandwich would get folk so exercised? But the recent arrival of a new item on the famously basic Relais de Venise menu certainly did that. This is their Parisian baguette, spread with their famous piquant sauce and topped with rare steak and lots and lots of frites. There’s probably not a single lockdown hangover in London that this wouldn’t cure.

How to order: Via their website

Mortadella banh mi - SnackbarMortadella banh mi - Snackbar
