Meat & Bread @ Vancouver

I took a short trip to Vancouver with my family over a long weekend and had some pretty amazing food experiences over a couple of days. My first stop was to Meat & Bread, a very popular lunch spot known for their roast meat sandwiches. 
As you line up to order, you can see the chefs hard at work chopping up the porchetta. I was initially planning to share a sandwich with my mom, but after seeing that delicious pile of meat, I knew I had to try more than one sandwich!
Naturally, we ordered their famous porchetta sandwich. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of  porchetta, and unlike most people, I did not like Porchetta & Co at all. I was happy that I gave the Porchetta a second chance because I ended up enjoying this one a lot! It was certainly a delicious, hearty sandwich. The meat was very juicy and well-complemented by the salsa verde. In addition to the mustard, I asked for an extra dollop of hot sauce to add an extra kick.
The daily special sandwich featured Buffalo chicken with peppercorn ranch and carrot celery slaw. At first I was hesitant about the celery, but fortunately it wasn't very strong at all. The chicken was tender, and in general the sandwich was super saucy with a nice tang. Literally, juice was dripping down my arm as I was devouring it! While I found the sandwich perfectly tasty, my mom didn't like the combination of spices.
My verdict- thumbs up for the sandwiches! My only regret is that I didn't get to try their maple bacon ice cream sandwich, which sounds amazing. Maybe next time!
