Why have a Christmas dinner with all the trimmings when you can have it in a SANDWICH…and these aren’t just your typical turkey and cranberry sauce sarnies either. These are Christmas sandwiches with a twist. A special, scrumptious, sensational twist that will transform your lunch run into a magical festive adventure of tastebud titillation. We are even putting some on these onto our list to Santa, they’re THAT good.
1. Melt Room, Christmas Melt
This Christmas, New York-style grilled cheese sandwich shop in Soho, Melt Room, will be rivalling Pret a Manger for the title of best Christmas sandwich in town. Gimmicky red packaging aside (Melt Room is all about the mellow yellow), Soho’s one-stop grilled cheese shop will be offering Londoners a gourmet American-inspired Christmas Melt to warm their cockles over the festive season. The perfect festive lunch for busy shoppers on-the-go, the Christmas melt will wrap all your turkey dinner dreams into one, with roast turkey, stuffing, swiss cheese, cranberry sauce, and rosemary all melted between two slices of delicious potato sourdough bread!
26 Noel Street, London, W1F 8GY
2. Blacklock, Christmas Sandwich
Does this picture need words? No. Well, we should probably tell you what is in it, but we also wanted to reveal our utter speechlessness (a rarity) at this PHENOMENAL Christmas sarnie. The Blacklock sandwich consists of turkey rubbed with a homemade mix of Christmas spices, grilled over their famous charcoal grill and tucked into a toasted demi-brioche bun. If that wasn’t enough, they’ve added a homemade sausage and onion patty, crispy Middlewhite bacon, cranberry chutney, steamed greens and plenty of gravy to dunk it all in…at £10 it’s steep but come on, it’s Christmas. And HAVE YOU SEEN IT?!

3. Foxlow, Christmas Sandwich
Any relation to Hawksmoor and you know it’s going to be good and Foxlow’s Christmas Sandwich makes all our carb-filled fantasies come true. Smoked turkey, stacked with a chargrilled sausage patty, bacon, sprout tops and cranberry ketchup, which adds a certain je ne sais quoi (we’re clearly lost for words with this one too…) We’re not done yet though, because there’s the stroke of genius that is the bubble and squeak hash brown and gravy on the side for dipping. GRAVY ON THE SIDE FOR DIPPING!
69-73 St John Street, EC1M 4AN
4. The De Beauvoir Deli, Christmas Sandwich
This is a true to form traditional Christmas sandwich for you classic lot out there. Not only traditional, we feel like The De Beauvoir Deli’s Christmas Sandwich is also a healthy option because it’s between two slices of multigrain bread (and multigrain = health right?) Ok, so the rocket isn’t ‘traditional’ per se, but the turkey, bacon, chestnut stuffing, cranberry sauce and mayonnaise (let’s pretend it’s bread sauce for argument’s sake) totally is. Generously filled and ABSOLUTELY DELI-CIOUS! See what we did there?…

5. Hache, Turkey Burger
Ok, ok, we knowwww it says Turkey Burger, but quite frankly we couldn’t help ourselves. Sandwich/burger, who’s counting ey? It’s pretty much the same thing. And this sandwich (*burger*) will blow your mind. A butter fried turkey escalope topped with pork patty, sage and onion stuffing, salt cured streaky bacon wrapped chipolatas and grilled Brussels sprouts with cranberry sauce all served in a lightly toasted brioche bun is what a Christmas sandwich makes. GOBBLE GOBBLE indeed!
Like sandwiches as much as we do? We know where to find the best non-festive ones in London!
