The Ultimate Sandwich Challenge – With 8 HK Best Sandwiches!

This September, The Forks & Spoons, Crave Magazine and Deliveroo have prepared 8 gourmet sandwiches from some of Hong Kong’s best restaurants and deli to compete for the honorary title of Ultimate Sandwich.

From the classic ingredients of breads, fillings, sauces to the building and presentation of a well-constructed sandwich, these are what complete a perfect and delicious gourmet sandwiches.

The line up includes some of my favourite joints such as Bread & Beast, Beef & Liberty, Posto Pubblico, and long-awaited Morty’s, Mrs. Pound and the newly opened Second Draft.

Taking inspiration from Hong Kong’s favourite food destination Sai Kung, Bread & Beast has prepared theirs with mantis shrimp in Tsing Tao based tempura batter and sweet shrimp paste mayo.

Beef & Liberty stays close to their beef roots, a pressed and grilled sirloin steak sourdough with typical smoked cheddar, dijon and grain mustard.

Korean-inspired bulgogi-wich made by Jinjuu has been well-seared however lacking a significant Korean flavor, whereas the hearty combination of Australian minute steak, chili onion jam and chimichurri with rocket is by Knead.

While Morty’s takes a spin on their signature pastrami and cheese with rye bread, pan-fried bacon and homemade Thousand Island dressing, Vinny Lauria of Posto Pubblico has never failed to impress me, this time with a sandwich made with an amazingly chewy and crusty bun, Italian ingredients and a rich and cheesy gorgonzola sauce to finish.
Also, Mrs. Pound’s Banh Mi has a fantastically light and airy Vietnamese baguette stuffed with rich stew.

And tonight, the winner goes to Second Draft’s Shanghai Dip, which is also my favourite! Resembling the traditional French dip, this version is made with a deliciously tender 24-hour braised pork leg, in Stonecutter Scottish ale pork jus and cucumber pickles.

Each will be available at its own restaurant from 12 Sept-10 Oct, so grab the chance to taste these limited edition sandwiches, ordering from Deliveroo.
