Serious meat sandwiches. Simple.
A trip to Vancouver's Gastown is not complete without a sandwich from Meat & Bread. These guys focus on two things and two things only - meat and bread. If the minimalist signage doesn't entice you to step inside and find out more, then the smell of roasted meat wafting out of the door will.
As you enter this industrial-feel sandwich haven, you'll see exposed brick walls, hanging light fixtures and a leather boxing bag swaying near the back. Within seconds, your eyes will quickly fixate on the roasted pork under the chef's knife - and you'll forget to even look at the menu. This roasted pork makes Meat & Bread's signature sandwich - the Porchetta. Freshly made bread (still warm from the oven) is stuffed with a sizeable amount of juicy pork, crispy crackling, herby salsa verde, complete with a squeeze of mustard. Made as you pay means that you'll have one of these bad boys in seconds. Other sandwich options include a daily special, meatball or a good ol' grilled cheese. And if you can't get enough of their sauces, you can buy some sambal, salt rub or mustard to take home.
Beer, wine and soda are also available. And it's good to know that they stock 33 Acres West Coast Pale Ale - one of our favourite craft beers from Vancouver.
