I took a much-anticipated trip to Joe's Sandwich Bar yesterday. Located in the CBD district of Sydney, Joe's is a newly-opened, humble vegan sandwich shop with possibly THE best bread and filling combinations I’ve had in ages. Because some days nothing beats a good, old-fashioned sandwich.
Joe's Sandwich Bar has a board of filling options to choose from, ranging from miso caramel eggplant to silverbeet roasted coconut & lime shaved broccoli, enjoying unusual combinations (potato and raisins go amazing well together!) all wedged between two slices of thick-cut bread. And that bread is none other than Iggy’s infamous bread, which I’m informed is the best bread in Sydney. Wow, how many times can I say bread in one sentence?!
I tried the Reuben (fave!) and the Smokey Potato with a kombucha (vanilla kola) to drink. Both sandwiches were amazing but the Reuben was just that little bit extra. It was filled with amazing smoked tempeh, fennel and apple slaw, cashew cream and mustard pickles. Have you ever heard of such a magical concoction between two slices of bread?!
There's something very comforting, yet indulgent about getting your hands around and tucking into a generously filled sandwich, bursting full of interesting food combinations.I'll definitely be back to make my way through the rest of the menu. For... research.
