Rock your taste buds to their core with CHAR’s new content pillar. You guessed it; it’s Sandwich of the Week!

The humble sandwich is a work of art. It’s a knife’s edge balance of flavours and textures. Sandwiches are a portable feast that can be eaten on the go or savoured slowly. Dublin Sandwiches are our favourite way to eat. They pack together everything we love in slightly different yet comfortably familiar ways. That means that when you buy a sandwich, it has to be good. It has to do something you can’t do.  

Sure, you can get a sandwich in every cafe trying to get an add-on sale. Ergo, every week, we’ll bring you the latest and greatest in the world of Dublin Sandwiches, from towering Dagwoods to delicate tea sandwiches.

The Moroccan Lamb

Greenville Deli’s The Moroccan Lamb sandwich is an absolute delight. The 12-hour slow-cooked lamb shoulder is beautifully tender and juicy. Infused with a complex blend of spices that transport you straight to the bustling markets of Morocco. The pickled red cabbage and feta cheese adds a wonderful tangy contrast. At the same time, the caramelized red onions impart a sweet depth of flavour. The pomegranate seeds burst with a refreshing burst of juiciness, and the rocket provides a lovely crunch.

What really elevates this sandwich is the spicy harissa mayo. It adds a fiery kick that balances out the other flavours perfectly. All of these wonderful ingredients are sandwiched between two slices of perfectly toasted sourdough, making this a sandwich that is both satisfying and incredibly delicious.

This isn’t just a sandwich it’s more like a well-composed symphony of deliciousness that’ll make you want to sing (or maybe moan in pleasure, I won’t judge). It’s something you’d never make for yourself. It’s an Avengers of assembled textures and flavours playing together perfectly.

So if you want to experience sandwich nirvana, get yourself some to Greenville Deli for CHAR’s Sandwich of the Week.
