Different Types of Sandwiches

Sandwiches have been in existence for thousands of years. It is said that one of the Jewish elders wrapped meat from the Paschal Lamb and different types of herbs between two pieces of unleavened bread during Passover and essentially created the modern day sandwich was born.

Sandwiches can be found all over the world and you will find variations of sandwiches everywhere from India to China to France, people all over the world love sandwiches thanks to their convenience and the wide variety of fillings (healthy and unhealthy) that are available.

In Japan you will find the yakisoba sandwich which is filled with thin noodles fried in a sauce that is very similar to Worcestershire sauce. The noodles are called yakisoba and since the sandwich is a serious carbo load, you should only try this one out when you are very hungry. If you are ever in Sweden make sure you try the incredible smorgastarta which is a gorgeously presented sandwich with layers of pate, smoked salmon, cold nuts and caviar. Delicious. (more...)
