Tips and tricks for making the best sandwiches at home.
In addition to breads, pastries, and sausages, German newcomer Landbrot offers an array of house made sandwiches. I tried the Black Forest Ham ($11.50), which layers smoked meat with Emmenthal cheese, thinly sliced cucumbers, and peppery arugula on a generously buttered ciabatta roll. The sandwich comes with a generous portion of Austrian-style potato salad (a small portion pictured here), which is heavy on the vinegar; there's also a side salad of (bagged) baby greens. My reaction to my lunch was mixed: although I found the sandwich components flavorful, I was puzzled as to why they were served on an Italian-style bread, and not on one of the dense, flavorful loaves that the café offers. I also thought that the sandwich was understuffed, with only a few slices of ham and cheese and a whole lot of bread. If you're looking for a light, veggie-heavy ham and cheese (or a nice strudel or pretzel), though, Landbrot is worth a visit.
