Mine was egg and crab purchased in an Italian bar. Closely followed by prawns in dill mayonnaise that Pret sold years ago.

I had an amazing Reuben sandwich at NASA in Florida of all places.
Funnily enough I remember the sandwich and DD doing an explosive poo but not much else about the day

A French dipped beef sandwich at Phillipe’s in downtown LA.
A friend recommended the place and we walked for over an hour trying to find it with very few directions and a poor mobile internet signal.

I want to say a beef po’boy in New Orleans but honestly that’s a close second to the chicken mozerella and jalapeño panini I had after doing the glucose tolerance test at 28 weeks pregnant. I was STARVING. I still think about it now...

Anything from M&S’ plant based kitchen Range. Wow. I also love the tortilla and pimientos padrones baguettes in spain.

I'm not a big fan of sandwiches but I had an amazing one just recently, at a restaurant called The Farm north of Chicago. Ham & Gruyere on toasted bread, with some delicious kind of mustard.

My second is probably a shrimp po'boy from New Orleans.

Mine is the one I get to make, occasionally, after we’ve had a roast chicken with home made stuffing and bread sauce.

Fresh white bread, salted butter, cold chicken (with plenty of skin), sage, onion and bacon stuffing and a layer of cold bread sauce. Heaven.

Ham and cottage cheese on white doorstep. From the sandwich shop next to Barclays. They used to put it in a paper bag to takeaway. I'd then munch it on the bench while waiting for the bus. Had to be eaten cold though.

The slice of toast with raspberry jam a lovely nurse brought me at about 3am, when I finally came round after an operation that had started early the previous afternoon.
I will always remember her kindness!

A lamb sandwich at Melbourne Victoria Market

Hot lamb, fresh bread, some sort of garlicy goodness, fresh salad

Just utter perfection

M &S used to do a mature cheddar, apple and fromage fre on walnut bread. Lush!

Some kind of mozzarella, basil and tomato bagel from a deli in New York. I know it sounds boring but it was stacked about 5 inches high and the flavours were incredible.

A Philly Cheesesteak sandwich in - where else - Philadelphia.
Wonderful but left me stuffed for 24 hours (and I eat loads!)

Mine was a fresh crab meat on thick brown bread served by the beach in East Dorset. It also came with a side of perfectly cooked chips too 🤤

I had a really, really tasty tofu (of all things!) sandwich at a café in Barcelona several years ago. I’ve not been back to Barcelona since and I don’t think I would be able to remember where the cafe was but it was DELICIOUS!

One Christmas season pret did a beef wellington sandwich with lovely thin roast beef and a mushroom spread. It was heaven. Next year it was gone and I still miss it.

Our local bakers does a focaccia with roast beef, swiss cheese, gherkin, rocket and chutney. it is utterly divine.

Cheese cucumber and onion with salad cream on white bread!! Or chicken and stuffing with a freshly cooked chicken dip one slice of bread in the cooking juice off the chicken

I used to go to a sandwich bar before lectures that did an incredible ham, cheese and coleslaw baguette. Importantly, the baguette was always warm.

More recently an amazing Ruben from Monty's Deli.

I used to buy doorstep wedge sandwiches from a little indipendent shop in my local town.... About 12 years ago!. The best was a BLT with lashings of mayo or failing that a ham salad with thick chunks of ham.

I moved out the area years ago and I still remember them. Feeling a bit peckish now 😒

Ready for the disgust here......... Chichen and mushroom pot noodle, cheese slice and dorito sandwich!!! Complete mouthgasm grin

My first ever sub, from upstate New York in 1998. It was tuna, salad and gherkins. I'd never eaten gherkins. It was the sandwich of dreams!

Crispy bacon, mature cheddar cheese, mayonnaise and barbecue sauce with soft tiger loaf bread, homemade but amazing!
