We tried to ask our readers about their favorite sandwich shop, but it turns out too many shops are big national chains. So instead we asked our readers for their favorite sandwiches, even at places that aren’t specialty sandwich shops. The answers were tasty and enlightening…

Honolulu Chicken Breast Sub at Sarducci’s– Kirkland and University District. “A giant piece of chicken, tons of pineapple, and the sauce, oh the sauce! Drips off your fingers but you lick every last drop up.”

Turkey, Apple, Brie, & Bacon at Specialty’s Café– all over. “While this is a chain, this sandwich can’t be missed. Every element is delightful and fire roasted apples? Yes please!”

The Tripleta La Isla in Ballard or Redmond. “Ham, steak, and pulled Puerto Rican pork make this sandwich a winner in my book. Ask for garlic sauce to dip your sweet potato fries in and you’ll get the best meal possible.”

Grilled Pork Banh Mi Sandwich at Thien Phat on Rainier Ave, Seattle. “Usually under $3 a sandwich and made as fast as you need one, these are the best banh mi in the city.”

And one for old times’ sake: “Can someone please revive Sal’s Deli in Burien so I can get one last giant family-feeding Club Sandwich?”

What is your favorite sandwich around Seattle? Do you have a favorite sandwich shop you visit often?
