Ah, le sandwich. A staple of French food, the simplest and most down to earth of foods, and one that transcends time and place. Every culture has some rendition of it—falafel, burger, pork bun…
But as with everything (okay not everything, but many things), France does it best. In this video by LivingBobby’s Bobby Brisket, our pompadoured guide to cheap foreign eats gives us a tour of the best sandwiches in Paris. He ranks three sandwiches from different boulangeries, all while giving out some interesting trivia on French bakeries and why their food stays so fresh.
The winner? A masterpiece from the Chevet Marache Madeleine in the 11th arrondissement. Baked on éclair bread (non-traditional but definitely tasty!) and filled with salmon, caviar, sun dried tomatoes, avocado, and arugula, this is the kind of sandwich worth booking a flight for.
