I'm currently in search of Vancouver's perfect sandwich.
Here is how I'm rating the sandwiches:
5 points scale with half points available
A. Bread - is it fresh, taste, texture, hardness, toasted?
B. The meat - how good is it? Does it work? Is it too salty?
C. The sauce - how does the sauce compliment everything? Does it all tie in together?
D. The veg - are you using quality veg, is there generous amounts? Does the veg work?
E. Breaking the jaw - how severe is this sandwich? How well is it constructed ?
The Top 5 sandwiches in my long term review will be contacted to be featured in my video.

Roasted Chicken Sandwich with Hot Gravy
Bread - Toasted baguette that reminded me of Bahn Mi sandwiches. Good level of crunch, good texture, light enough that it wasn't too doughy. - 5/5
Meat- Damn this chicken, the perfect roasted chicken that felt like they plucked the meat off a freshly roasted bird. So good, so tender, juicy af. 5/5
Sauce- Black pepper aioli but having that gravy reminded me of a fresh thanksgiving sandwich. Like eating thanksgiving in a sandwich without the turkey but with chicken. 4.5/5
Veg - pea shoots and pickled onions 3/5
Breaking the Jaw- It was close, really had to open up that jaw to let the food flow in 3.5/5
Price - $10.00 plus tip
Overall score 21/25 - 81% - This is a messy sandwich, like wash your hands after eating type of sandwich. The chicken with the havarti really mix well together. I just really wish there was more veg and the common theme I'm noticing is that veg is missing in lots of sandwiches. But this is a decent sandwich, the one I had didn't have crackling cause they sold out of it but I would say the score would be even higher with it. Colour me impressed. As a side note, if you haven't tried their potatoes, please do, it's cooked perfect and with the sesame mayo, to die for.
