Boston doesn’t exactly have an iconic type of sandwich, at least not in the same way some cities do — Philly has the cheesesteak, Chicago has the Italian beef, and New York has pastrami on rye, for example. Sure, there’s the lobster roll, but if hot dogs aren’t sandwiches, lobster rolls aren’t sandwiches either (and are thus excluded from this map, except for one that actually is a sandwich; find the best of the best here).
The dearth of a definitive sandwich type notwithstanding, an eater can absolutely find a lot of very good sandwiches of various types in and around Boston, from banh mi to chicken parm to roast beef to fried fish. (And if you’re eating an Italian sub, don’t forget the hots.)
Here are 18 of Greater Boston’s must-try sandwiches.
