12 Must-Try LA Sandwich Spots

A "Bäco" at Bäco Mercat
With the opening of Downtown's Blue Cow Kitchen & Bar, we're reminded that before Los Angeles was a hotbed of high-end hamburgers, pizza and fusion tacos, it was the sandwich that defined the cutting-edge cuisine of the City of the Angels. In fact, some may argue that angels dine on sweet pastries and manna - we like to believe they consume French dip sandwiches. Click through the slideshow below to see 12 spots serving sandwiches that go way beyond the brown-bag lunch.

  4. Yes Merrill, these sandwiches all look good, but I'd like to add one to your list. How about The Apple Pan. They're tuna is to die for along with their extra lean ham sandwich. Judging by the prices you listed, they are a bargain. The tuna as robust as the ones you showed is only $7.25 as is the ham. I will check out yours if you check out mine.

  5. Philippe the Original coffee went up to to 45 cents. when I was a kid my father worked at Philippe and coffee was 5 cents with free refills. The place is still great. Don't forget to walk over the to Union Train Station for a trip to the old days in LA

  6. This is why Zagat is waaay behind Yelp. This list is dated, boring and reeks of daddy's sandwiches. This is a tourist list, not for locals. All About the Bread is today's Bay Cities. Johnnies should be condemned.
