Food and words.

From gourmet sandwiches that cost more than a movie ticket, to the classic steak sanga from a truck stop servo, there are some great sandwiches to be had, so we want to know where we can find the best ones in Melbourne. A good sandwich might be made with inspired fillings that amaze your taste buds, or perhaps you know a place where you design your own tantalising combo. Whether they are big or small, as long as they're tasty we want to know about them. So let us know where Melbourne's best sandwich shop can be found.

You can't mention sandwiches in Melbourne without mentioning Earl Canteen, because they definitely know how to do sandwiches. Not even the names are boring, each one designed to make your mouth water from the moment you read it on the menu till you wipe the last crumb from your lips. There is the Duck Confit with confit duck, caramelised figs, walnuts, onion jam, radicchio, watercress, on ciabatta, or the REAL steak sandwich with grilled steak, rocket and parmesan salad, balsamic baby onions, dijon mustard, on a focaccia. Their menu is filled with other amazing combinations that you would have never dreamed of making at home, they aren't cheap, but take a bite of one and you'll probably realise why.

You won't manage to miss the sandwiches at Nashi, each day they make a range of sandwiches, baguettes, and paninis fresh with some tasty ingredients. They can be a quick and easy option where you need to dash in and just grab something to eat, or you can find somewhere to sit down and enjoy your sandwich with a cup of coffee. The refrigerated plastic wrapped sandwiches can be a bit off putting, slightly resembling a hospital cafe, but they have a trendy set up which is quick to wipe away these remarks.

If you don't know of a sandwich shop around town, perhaps you're in the know about some simply great sandwiches. Restaurants and bars also have impressive menus featuring some very yummy lunch time food. Fog Bar and Restaurant are one example, alongside their lunchtime menu you'll be able to find a Grilled Angus Steak Sandwich or the equally tasty Fog Club Sandwich. One of our writers is also pretty fond of the Chicken Sandwich at Husk Cafe.

So whether you've found a great sandwich shop, or a brilliant sandwich hiding unsuspectedly on a restaurant menu, fill us in on all the details. We're looking for the tasty fillings and the freshly baked breads that come together to make the perfect bite, so help us out in finding Melbourne's best sandwich shop.

Ortigia also does great panini. Mind you, you've got me going with your description of that steak sandwich. Very hard to ignore a top-notch steak sandwich...

COFFEA Elizabeth Street Melbourne; shopfront at Queen Vic. Market makes excellent Italian-style 'sandwiches'. Fillings are always fresh, innovative and delicious! Nothing boring...always superior.
