Today’s Vegan Mofo prompt is Best Sandwich Ever. In terms of buying a sandwich somewhere, I have two favourites. The first is Trang Bakery in Hardware Street, Melbourne (there’s an outlet in Collingwood too). Trang Bakery make the best banh mi I’ve ever tasted. There are great vegan options like eggplant tempura, roast BBQ pork, lemongrass tofu and the roast mock duck, shown above. I love the chilli, peanuts and fried shallots. A banh mi costs $6 and they’re really filling. Get some vegan fresh made donuts while you’re there!
My other favourite is Smith & Deli. You can read about my visit here, where I had this amazing sandwich called the Home Alone, though in this photo you see the sandwich in bread slices form. The deli had run out of the bread rolls, but this is still one super sandwich. It’s basically a roast meal in a sandwich: turkey, roast brussels sprouts, mashed potato, stuffing and cranberry sauce:
True North in Coburg make a great vegan Reuben too:
Toastie Temple have a stall at Preston Market and serve delicious organic vegan cheese toasties using locally produced artisan ingredients:
Rosalie from Quinces and Kale has an awesome Mofo theme this year. She’s blogging about Smith & Deli sandwiches every day! I haven’t been back to Smith & Deli in an unbearably long time so I’m loving all the different sandwiches Rosalie is featuring. It took me a long time deciding what I wanted the first time I visited because so many sandwiches on the menu sounded fab.
My favourite home made sandwiches come out of Vegan Sandwiches Save The Day. I reviewed this awesome book and made some ace sandwiches, my favourites being the Chickpea Shawarma:
… and the Asian Eggplant Sandwich:
Happy fifth day of Mofo!
