On the table: The five best sandwiches by McGill

McGill students are constantly on the hunt for a convenient, affordable, and filling meal in between classes, and sandwiches always fit the bill. The McGill Tribune has compiled a list of the five best sandwiches near campus for when Subway starts to taste a bit bland.

Vua Bánh Mì

A great option for those on the east side of campus, Vua is a Vietnamese bánh mì sandwich shop one block south of the Le James Bookstore. Often, the staff can get customers in and out with a warm bánh mì in under five minutes. In addition to its speedy service and low prices, Vua also offers a great seating area perfect for a leisurely lunch. Yelp reviewers are quick to note that the only thing worth ordering are the sandwiches, while the rest of their menu is disappointing. Still, Vua offers a substantial meal that will not break the bank.

Super Sandwich

Despite its odd location at the counter of an understocked dépanneur, customers receive their orders in a flash. Diners can get some combination of deli meat topped with cheese and slathered in mayo and mustard, and piled high with tomatoes and lettuce. While this may not excite the average sandwich lover’s taste buds, it is a good alternative for students on a budget.

Olly Fresco’s

While Olly Fresco’s is less convenient than other eateries on this list, hungry students willing to brave the cold will not be disappointed. This lunch spot, located in the St. Catherine pavillion in the underground city, is a popular space for the stressed Montreal business elite. This downtown deli is packed with a daily buffet, pasta bar, and a selection of soups. Students can leave with Lebanese, grilled, or wrapped sandwiches, all under 10 dollars. Tasty and budget-friendly, Olly Fresco’s is the ideal location for stir-crazy library-goers up for a short walk.

Joe’s Panini

This 24-hour sandwich joint serves up classic grilled sandwiches, which may not be creative, but are always well-made. Joe’s Panini is renowned for its spicy chicken sandwiches and late night eats. Every sandwich goes for just over five dollars, which makes up for the long walk. Recently, Joe’s Panini has appeared on popular food delivery apps, making their sandwiches more convenient than ever.

Campo

Campo is a fast-food chicken shop that serves Portuguese-style chicken in every conceivable form: Sandwiches, poutine, salads, and wings. A grilled chicken sandwich goes for eight dollars and comes with a considerable amount of chicken on a crunchy bun. Located right next to Peel metro station in the heart of the downtown area, the restaurant is located relatively close to campus. While it may not be the most economical choice, Campo is one of the best sandwiches on this list and offer a variety of lunch options.
