Most of us grew up eating sandwiches. All you need are two slices of bread, and filling as simple as peanut butter and jelly (or, if you’re Asian, condensed milk and peanut butter). Feeling fancy? Throw the bread in the toaster, stack on the sauces, and layer on your favourite protein. The simple sandwich can be anything from a convenient snack, lazy to-go meal, or even a gourmet meal fit for the queen—if you do it right.
To celebrate World Sandwich Day on November 3, we’re compiling our favourite places in Hong Kong for a good-for-the-soul sandwich. 7-11, you’ve been good to us with your fluffy, Japanese-style sandwiches, but there’s no room for you here. From American-style Reubens and hearty cheese toasties, to Japanese-style sandos with thick-cut wagyu steaks layered in the middle, here’s where to celebrate this very special day.

1. Fat Chad’s
It’s almost impossible to write about sandwiches without mentioning Hong Kong’s favourite New York-style bodega, Fat Chad’s. Come for a ridiculously indulgent Reuben that’ll cure your homesickness for Katz’s—made with corned beef, smoked mozzarella and Russian dressing on malted rye bread. They also do a mean Cubano sandwich with plenty of ham and cheese, as well as their creamy egg sandwich.
