Street Kitchen Sandwich – The Best Sandwiches in London?
Street Kitchen Sandwich (SKS) is based in Broadgate Circle, in the City of London, a stone’s throw from Liverpool Street Station and is the latest venture between high end chef’s Jun Tanaka and Mark Jankel.
While all major cities in the world have their pretenders to the throne of best sandwich / sub / hero, in their own city, SKS sole aim is to make the best sandwiches in London and become a landmark site, for globally recognised quality and innovation.
Sandwiches and Salads are the main menu items. But be warned, these are no ordinary sandwiches or salads though.
Great care and attention to detail has been lavished in selecting the finest ingredients and where these are not available, SKS have innovated and made their own, such as their own home smoked Scottish Salmon, which is used in both the Sandwiches and Salads.
The salad selection focusses on the freshest produce and the initial offering is 4 salads available in two sizes, one as a side salad and the other as a main. There are Ham Hock, Smoked Salmon Salad, and Vegetarian options. You can taste the level of skill and deliberation put into making these salads, right down to the micro herbs, there is flavour everywhere, popping in your mouth.
As a confirmed professional carnivore, I was expecting a lot from the “Sandwiches”. The Beef & Vegetarian Sandwiches come in 24 inch lengths. Depending on how hungry you are, you purchase these sandwiches in incremental 2 inch lengths. Again the freshest and tastiest ingredients are used and sourced locally wherever possible. Was I disappointed, not a change, mouth-watering and delicious, and I was even totally surprised by the Vegetarian Sandwich, which was truly delicious.
Artisan bread making “lives” and all the bread used here comes from small (sometime 1 person bakeries) where their expertise and passion is transformed into mouth wateringly delicious output. There are two further sandwiches, the chicken which comes in hand made sesame seed rolls, lamb and chicken kebabs in the most exquisite pitta bread, so light and fluffy and I have never tasted anything like it.
Are these the best sandwiches in London? Of course they are by a country mile!
Are these the best sandwiches in England, certainly the best I have tasted.
Best sandwiches in the world…………..Probably.
