All About The Bread Deli Fairfax $10-$15 The Godfather (12.95) 7111 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90036
Archie's Deli and Mini Mart Deli North Hollywood $10-$15 Archie's Favorite is really damn good, my favorite sandwich in NoHo. It's a big boy to be sure, but it has the right balance of great textures. I love their mini mart, with unique snacks from around the world and some sundry staples. 11044 Magnolia Blvd, North Hollywood, CA 91601
Attari Sandwich Shop Iranian Westwood $10-$15 Kotlet-Chicken, Kuku Sabzi (vegetarian), (both $13.99): Last time I went, an incredibly nice old fella recommended the Osh soup with bread. Also, I can't help but be charmed by their website. 1388 Westwood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90024
Ba Le Sandwich Shop Vietnamese Alhambra <$10 Sweet Meat Banh Mi ($4): Ba Le might have my favorite banh mi bread, it's damn perfect. Their pre-made spring rolls are also especially great! 1426 S Atlantic Blvd, Alhambra, CA 91803
Banh Mi My Dung Vietnamese Chinatown <$10

Banh Mi Dac Biet (Special Sandwich) ($5): I love the convenient selection of grocery foods they also have. Buy some Golden Mountain Seasoning Sauce from Thailand if you see it. Holy shit is it the best damn sauce, use it whenever you'd use soy sauce.

314 Ord St, Los Angeles, CA 90012
Banh Mi My Tho Vietnamese Alhambra, Rosemead <$10 #8 Charbroiled Pork Sandwich (Alhambra location, $4.75), #2 Grilled Prok (Rosemead strip mall location, $6): The #8 at the original Alhambra location is an absolutely iconic sandwich, I also recommend the meat balls, chrysanthemum tea from the fridge on the far right wall, and immediately eating in the parking lot off of your trunk.

304 W Valley Blvd, Alhambra, CA 91801

9011 Garvey Ave C, Rosemead, CA 91770

7434 Garvey Ave Rosemead, CA 91770

Banh Oui Vietnamese Hollywood $10-$15 The kind of fusion food where they put the last two good things they ate together like chicken katsu banh mi and elote fries. 1552 N Cahuenga Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028
Bay Cities Italian Deli Santa Monica <$10 The Godmother ($7.50): A classic so delicious that you won't shut the fuck up about it for 3 days. 1517 Lincoln Blvd, Santa Monica, CA 90401
Breadlam Italian Deli Arts District $10-$15 The Glendale is really fucking good. Genoa Salami, Manchego, Cornichon Mayo (amazing mayo, perfect, I love it), Balsamic, Greens ($12). There’s no better sandwich in the Arts District 826 E. 3rd St. Los Angeles, CA 90013
Bub and Grandma's New American Glassell Park $10-$15 I adore the muffaletta, and the Ham Royale is a delight. The Rainbow is a really fantastic veggie sanwich. I love the olive and almond salad side, a standard part of my order. 3507 Eagle Rock Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90065
Busy Bee Market Subs San Pedro $10-$15 I've only been once and I got the turkey ($14.25) it's simply softness as a sandwich, what a delight, lives up to the hype. I'll instantly trust any spot with a old plastic menu-board and that automatically gives you a handful of pepperoncini. 2413 S Walker Ave, San Pedro, CA 90731
Cahuenga General Store American North Hollywood $10-$15 Vegetarian ($8.75): Your mom will love this cute ass place and the sandwiches are really good! 5510 Cahuenga Blvd, North Hollywood, CA 91601
Cemitas Poblanas Don Adrian Mexican/Cemitas Van Nuys $10-$15 Lomo Adobado ($12): Cemitas have quickly become my favorite style of torta. There's so much flavor in this sandwich, and it's a thick boi). Flavor that, to me, feels so unique to Mexican cuisine and that I don't often come across in the US. Don Adrian also has breakfast cemitas that I'm dying to try. 6524 Van Nuys Blvd, Van Nuys, CA 91401
Cole's French Dip Downtown $ 16+ French Dip ($19): I'm really not interested in the Cole's vs. Phillipe's debate, they are both great and not really comparable. Cole's is a great cocktail bar with a classic LA sandwich, I love how customizable the Dip is. And that hot mustard is no joke, intense and oh so good. 118 E 6th St, Los Angeles, CA 90014
Chateau Marmont Turkey Club West Hollywood $ 16+ Turkey Club ($24): Look, this isn't a restaurant you can just go to whenever, this is famously an exclusive hotel, as I reservations at the restaurant are a whole thing. That said, I was incredibly surprised at how good this Turkey Club was, possibly one of the best I've ever had. The turkey was freshly grilled, and with a delicious aoili that made it all oh so perfectly moist. So if you just so happen to be at the Chateau, and are in the mood for a sandwich, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. 8221 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90046
Clark Street Diner Diner Hollywood $ 16+ The Club Sandwich ($18) is a clasically California take on the club, with avocado and "special sauce." 6145 Franklin Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90028
Clark Street Bread Californian Echo Park, Larchmont, Brentwood, Downtown $ 16+ The California Club Sandwich ($16) is yet another California take on the club, but it's reaaaaally good. Their bacon has a lovely sweetness to it, the sauce is great, and the bread is obviously fantastic. I also hiiiighly recommend the challa french toast, simply amazing.

Brentwood: 11702 Barrington Ct, Los Angeles, CA 90049

Larchmont: 139 1/2 N Larchmont Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90004

Echo Park: 331 Glendale Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026

Connal's Subs/Grinders Pasadena <$10 Turkey Breast ($5.39): This is a solid grinder that feels like it was designed by a New Jersey dad: simple, good ingredients that aren't too fancy, and maybe a little too big, but you can handle it. 1505 E Washington Blvd, Pasadena, CA 91104
Continental Gourmet Sausage Co. Classic Subs with great cheese Hermosa Beach $10-$15 Black Forest Ham ($7): I'm always surprised that at how much food you get for $7 here, each sandwich comes with a side. Recommended by LA Legend David Liebe Hart. 6406 San Fernando Rd, Glendale, CA 91201
Cultured Slice Sandwich Shop New American Hermosa Beach $ 16+ The Classic ($14): More European style, The Classic is French ham butter, and gruyere. A sandwich shop run by a cheese shop is definitely something I'd love to see more often. 229 Pacific Coast Hwy, Hermosa Beach, CA 90254
Dan's Super Subs Subs Woodland Hills <$10 The menu is comically dense, and so much of it sounds so good. 22446 Ventura Blvd Woodland Hills, CA 91364
DeFranko's Submarines Italian Subs Van Nuys <$10 Italian Cold Cut ($8.75): Look, I don't get the point of sesame seed buns, I think some bakers feel naked without them. But DeFranko's makes them work for their rolls by LOADING them with sesame seeds, which gives their subs a nicely unique flavor. 7532 Woodley Ave, Van Nuys, CA 91406
Delicias Bakery Mexican Bakery Highland Park <$10 Milanesa Torta ($8.75): Delicias was a go to spot for me when I lived in Highland Park, they have delicious tortas, vegan pan dulces, and make the cutest damn cakes. But, more often than not, I would find myself in a hurry and coming back for the pre-made, grab-and-go sandwiches or pastries in the fridge cabinet. 5567 N Figueroa St, Los Angeles, CA 90042
Delicious Food Corner Hong Kong-style diner San Gabriel Valley, multiple locations <$10 The Tuna Salad sandwich here is very tasty and has more complex flavors than the classic American tuna sandwich I'm used to. That said, Delicious Food Corner has so much more to offer than their sandwiches. They have the best congee I've ever had. The pineapple bun is a "must order" item. Their menu is huge and everyhting I've had on it is pretty damn good. Be sure to check out Jonathan Gold's review from 2016. Google Map of the locations
Eagle Rock Italian Bakery and Deli Italian Deli Eagle Rock <$10 Italian Combo: A nice little neighborhood Italian deli with a great selection of pastries, and frozen foods they make themselves. Definitely an unsung hero in NELA. 1726 Colorado Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90041
Eastside Italian Deli Italian Deli Chinatown <$10 Tucked away in Chinatown, this place has all the sub classics for around $9.29, cops love this place for some reason.

1013 Alpine St, Los Angeles, CA 90012

1761 N Vermont Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90027

Eggslut Breakfast Sandwiches Downtown <$10 If the line is intimidating, skip it, you don't have time for that shit. But, if it's a quiet weekday morning, I like to grab a seat at the counter and enjoy some perfectly cooked eggs on a nice bun with some good coffee. 317 S Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90013
Emma's Snack Shop American Downtown Inglewood <$10 I looooooove Emma's. I wish that every neighborhood in LA had their very own simple corner snack shop run by someone half as sweet and kind as Emma. The food is exactly what I want out of a simple sandwich shop. I paid $8 for a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich on wheat, with a damn good cup of coffee. They also serve bagels, chili cheese Fritos, salads, candy and more. 205 S Market St, Inglewood, CA 90301
El Cochinito Cuban Silver Lake <$10 PERMENANTLY CLOSED, BUT NOT FORGOTTEN :(
Cuban Sandwich, add maduros ($10): For my money, this is the best Cuban restaurant in the world. It somehow tastes like my nostalgia for the Cuban food I grew up eating in Miami. Everything on the menu is absolutely perfect. I absolutely love their white rice, best eaten with black beans.
3508 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026
Galco's Italian Deli Highland Park <$10 The Blockbuster ($6.99): You gotta watch Huell Howser go to Galco's 5702 York Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90042
Giamela's (Atwater Village) Italian Deli Atwater Village $10-$15 Turkey with Pesto Mayo: I love anywhere that gives you pepperoncinis with your sandwich, I bite the tip off and drain the juices all over it. 3178 Los Feliz Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90039
Giamela's (Burbank) Italian Deli Burbank <$10 Pastrami (Burbank exclusive): The B-bank menu is much smaller than Atwater's, but maybe that's because half of the staff (there's two) is putting a lot of love into the pastrami process, and that's okay because their pastrami is amazing. Has been known to weigh you down for the rest of the day. 216 Magnolia Blvd, Burbank, CA 91502
Giuliano's in Gardena Italian Deli Gardena <$10 Giulio ($10.45) 6231 W 87th St, Los Angeles, CA 90045
Golden Deli Vietnamese San Gabriel <$10 All of the sandwiches here are truly amazing, but my favorite thing on the menu is the Chicken Curry w/ French Bread ($6), the bread is fresh and SO DAMN GOOD when dipped in the curry. They have the most stacked menu in the country, nothing but hits, and it's really, really worth exploring. 815 W Las Tunas Dr, San Gabriel, CA 91776
Handy Market Italian Deli / BBQ Burbank, Magnolia Park $10-15 Italian on roll, add oil, vinegar, salt and pepper ($12). I also love the chicken salad on white bread. On Saturdays they do BBQ in the parking lot with a standalone BBQ takeout shop that's pretty solid. 2514 Magnolia Blvd, Burbank, CA 91505
Haute Mess Italian Deli Melrose $10-15 Italian on roll, add oil, vinegar, salt and pepper ($12). I also love the chicken salad on white bread. On Saturdays they do BBQ in the parking lot with a standalone BBQ takeout shop that's pretty solid. 2514 Magnolia Blvd, Burbank, CA 91505
Holdaak Korean Fried Chicken Highland Park <$10 Spicy Chicken Sandwich ($7.50): Korean fried chicken is underrated! Early on in the pandemic, my go-to lunch was their fried chicken salad with their homemade ranch, delicious! 5054 York Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90042
Hue Thai Bakery & Deli Vietnamese Rosemeade <$10 They make an ALL-STAR banh mi and a new favorite. The bread is just so damn perfect. Got the #11 house special (dac biet), and #19 charbroiled pork, and boy do they sing. 8968 Garvey Ave, Rosemead, CA 91770
Huge Tree Pastry Taiwanese Monterey Park <$10 Sesame Bread With Beef ($4): Despite not being called one on their menu, I'm calling this a sandwich, but mostly because Huge Tree Bakery is a modest SGV all-star and deserves all the love it can get. An amazing place for Taiwanese breakfast, which I looove. The stars on this menu are the beef roll, salty fan tuan, and their homemade soy milk. 423 N Atlantic Blvd, Monterey Park, CA 91754
Hy Mart Armenian North Hollywood $10-$15 The Armenian ($9.99): Amazing amazing amazing. They make great Armenian subs alongside the classics, all on fantastic Armenian bread rolls. 4795 Vineland Ave #3545, North Hollywood, CA 91602
Jeff's Table Fusion Highland Park $10-$15 The Mushrooben (vegetarian, $14.95): This sandwich is such an unsung hero, I love it. 5900 N Figueroa St, Los Angeles, CA 90042
Kagura (Gardena) Japanese Pork Cutlet Gardena <$10 Katsu Sando, pork cutlet sandwich ($9.50): Seems like the sandwich is only available at this location, which is attached to the Don Quixote market and is a must visit. They have hard to find Japanese groceries, booze, anime merch, and so much more. 1740 Artesia Blvd, Gardena, CA 90248
Kings Deli American Deli Burbank $10-$15 109 N Pass Ave, Burbank, CA 91505
Kein Giang Bakery Vietnamese Echo Park <$10 Banh mi ($7): While they specialize in cakes, their sandwiches are fantastic. 1471 Echo Park Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90026
Konbi Japanese Pork Cutlet Culver Cty $10-$15 Pork Katsu ($15): Without a doubt the best pork katsu sandwich I've ever had. That said, there really isn't much competition considering it's based on convenience store sandwiches in Japan that only go for a couple of bucks. 10000 Washington Blvd Unit 104, Culver City, CA 90232
Langer's Jewish Deli Westlake $ 16+ #19 Pastrami on Rye ($24): The best pastrami in town and possibly the greatest sandwich in LA. 704 S Alvarado St, Los Angeles, CA 90057
Lanza Brothers Italian Deli Lincoln Park <$10 Lanza Brothers is the kinda place you'd love to have down the street from you. Classic subs from a convenience store from $5 to $7. 1803 N Main St, Los Angeles, CA 90031
Larchmont Village Wine Italian Deli Larchmont <$10 Soppressata Salami ($9): comes with cornichons & black olives and will give you the true experience of being a writer's room PA on some comedy your parents will never remember. 223 N Larchmont Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90004
Lee's Sandwiches (many locations) Vietnamese Gardena, San Gabriel Valley, and more <$10 One of the few franchise restaurants I'm legitimately happy to see. Their #1 combination sandwich is $3.99 and is daaaaamn good. They have locations all over Orange County, 3 in the SGV, another in Las Vegas and more. 1451 Artesia Blvd, Gardena, CA 90248
Le French Rooster French Burbank $10-$15 A fantastic little French sandwich shop. Their Parisien is a perfect rendition of the classic ham and butter sandwich. They bake the baguettes on site and they are a goddamn delight. 2221 W Olive Ave, Burbank, CA 91506
Little Jewel of New Orleans Po' Boy Chinatown $ 16+ Soft Shell Crab Po'Boy ($18.50): This thing is the size of a Sunday newspaper from the 90s, and somehow still amazingly delicious. I feel like every time I come here the menu doubles in size and they add something to it that's my new favorite. I love this place so much. 207 Ord St, Los Angeles, CA 90012
Little Nelly New American Magnolia Park, Burbank $10-$15 Dad's Veggie Sandwich, lots of great textures and flavors going on here, with a big kick coming from the spicy mustard. I loooove spongy the bread is. 3815 W Magnolia Blvd Burbank, CA 91505
Lucky Boy Pastrami Pasadena <$10 Pastrami ($12.95): More famous for their breakfast burritos and burgers, their sandwiches are solid! 640 S Arroyo Pkwy, Pasadena, CA 91105
Made In Havana Cuban Pico Union $ 16+ 8116 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90048
Mario's Italian Deli and Market Italian Deli Glendale <$10 "S.O.B." Sopressata, Oven Roasted Chicken, and Balsamic Vinegar ($8.95): They have great classic Italian subs on the menu, you can't go wrong. Which is why there tends to be a big ass line on the weekends. They also have lots of great Italian groceries and drinks. I once impulse bought some insane squid ink pasta that looked like a wig, it was ridiculous. 740 E Broadway, Glendale, CA 91205
Mercado Buenos Aires Argentinian Van Nuys $10-$15 I have such a soft spot for Ham and Cheese Sandwiches de Miga, and Mercado Buenos Aires' are a delight. At home, I am staunchy against this style of white bread sandwich with the crust cut off. But they are such soft, pillowy snack food that I can't resist when I have a stack of them in the fridge. 7540 Sepulveda Blvd, Van Nuys, CA 91405
Mike's Deli Deli Slauson $10-$15 The menu is so huge that it's really impossible to say. This is Boar's Head city, so whatever your favorite American sandiwch is, they'll probably be able to make it. 4859 W Slauson Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90056
Monroe Place New American Culver City $ 16+ Insanity Later (vegetarian/vegan). I loooove the spicy serrano-cilatro spread. It pairs really well with the of the cucumber-tomato-red onion salad, which has that different kind of onion spicy going on. Nicely mellowed out by the avocado. All on Bub & Grandma's lightly charred focaccia? Just fantastic. 2118 N Broadway, LA, CA 90031
Moo's Craft Barbeque American BBQ Lincoln Heights $10-$15 Chopped Brisket ($15): Moo's is amazing, just out of this world amazing. 2118 N Broadway, LA, CA 90031
My 2 Cents Soul Food Mid-Wilshire $ 16+ Shrimp Po' Boy, they also have the best grits I've ever eaten in a restaurant. ($18) 5583 W Pico Blvd., Los Angeles, CA
My Hero Subs Northridge <$10 The #1, My Hero Special ($7.50 for a 6"). The warm sesame bread instantly won me over, then the tomato salad on top is simply a beautiful thing for your mouth. 9514 Reseda Blvd unit 15, Northridge, CA 91324
New Buenos Aires Bakery & Cafe Argentinian Burbank <$10 Choripan ($9.90): an Argentinian sausage & chimichurri on a baguette with tons of flavor, my absolute favorite Argentinian food. They also have sándwiches de miga, a huge favorite of mine, which are party trays of simple white bread sandwiches with no crust. Which doesn't sound like anything special, but trust me, they are so damn satisfying. 1723 W Verdugo Ave, Burbank, CA 91506
Ổ Bánh Mì Vietnamese Silver Lake $10-$15 My buddy Trevor Ames highly recommends the #3 Sardine, Bánh mì Cá Mòi. 1997 Hyperion Avenue, Los Angeles CA90027
OJ's Submarines Subs Long Beach/Lakewood <$10 OJ’s Regular ($6.75) with everything on it is a delight. Warm bread, outstanding Italian dressing, and amazing staff, the kinda place I wish was next to my house. 4136 Paramount Blvd, Lakewood, CA 90712
Olive It American Westchester <$10 Roast Beef ($9.50): The tapenade on this one really brings it. 6231 W 87th St, Los Angeles, CA 90045

Perry's Joint American Altadena/Pasadena $10-$15 Chicken Mingus ($12.50): A chicken salad sandwich that's made with good ingredients and care. They're topped with green apple slices that add just the nicest little sweetness. 2051 Lincoln Ave, Pasadena, CA 91103
Persepolis Pizza & Subs Iranian Reseda $10-$15 Lamb Gyro Sub ($12.99), I also hear the Persian hot dog sandwich is great. 6900 Reseda Blvd, Reseda, CA 91335
Phillippe's American Deli Chinatown <$10 French Dip ($9.25): I do not care if Phillipe's or Cole's French Dip is better, or even who invented the sandwich. Phillipe's is your classic deli-style, diner-type joint slanging all sorts of amazing food, including this tasty sandwich. The perfect place for downtown construction workers to grab breakfast at 6 AM, or for Angelenos to fill up on affordable eats before a Dodgers game. 1001 N Alameda St, LA, CA 90012
Pho Hot Vietnamese Glendale <$10 Fried Egg Banh Mi ($7.25) 6306 San Fernando Road, Glendale, CA
Pinocchio's Restaurant at Monte Carlo Deli Italian-American/"Red-Sauce Italian" Burbank, Magnolia Park $10-$15 Medium Monte Carlo Combination ($10.95): A semi-cafeteria style restaurant (attached to an Italian grocery store of course) with classic red-sauce Italian fare. Their garlic bread and gelato are also great! 3103 Magnolia Blvd, Burbank, CA 91505
Porto's (Burbank) Cuban Burbank, Magnolia Park $10-$15 Medianoche ($6.25): Not many places in LA make this classic, which is basically a Cuban sandwich on lovely sweet bread. But the real point of going to Porto's is for their classic Cuban pastries, which are gooooood. I just wish they had tequeños, and also a dozen more locations actually in LA so that the line would be short enough for a ventanita to make sense and I could just walk up to get cortado and a guava pastelito and not feel like I'm at the DMV.

3614 Magnolia Blvd, Burbank, CA 91505

315 N Brand Blvd, Glendale, CA 91203

The Red Lion Tavern German Beer Garden Silver Lake $16+ I'm a real sucker for schnitzel, so the schnitzel sandwich ($17) is so up my alley. I love the bright sauerkraut and thousand island dressing on that crispy fried pork! Sure, the bottom of my bun was soggy, but the beer is good enough to help forget that. 2366 Glendale Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90039
Rincon Chileno Chilean Hollywood <$10 The perfect Chilean deli. I got an amazing lomita sandwich, they also do milanesa and churrasco sandwiches, as well as amazing pastries like empanadas. 4354 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90029

Roma Market Italian Deli Pasadena <$10 The Sandwich ($5.50): This unassuming Italian grocery store, run by a legendary octogenarian from Sicily, sells stacks on stacks of a single type of simple, yet perfect sandwich. 918 N Lake Ave, Pasadena, CA 91104
Saigon's Bakery Vietnamese San Gabriel <$10 #23 Meatball Banh Mi ($4.50): Everything on the menu is gooood, take a baguette home with you. 718 E Valley Blvd, San Gabriel, CA 91776
Santoro's Italian Deli Burbank <$10 Solid $9-10 subs: every time I've been, the staff were entirely Valley Dads (New Balance shoes, cleanest polo shirts you've ever seen) that are just happy to be there, making a Dad joke about some small detail during your transaction. 1423 W Burbank Blvd, Burbank, CA 91506
Sorrento Italian Market Italian Deli Culver City <$10 Loved the Combination (with Cotto Salami, Mortadella, Capocollo, and Provolone. A great combo!) and the Caprese, nothing too crazy, just Italians done well. The bread is nice and fluffy, with a slight crunch. 5518 Sepulveda Blvd., Culver City, CA 90230
Submarine King Subs/Korean Burbank $10-$15 Spring Turkey ($9.99, seasonal): Run by the nicest family in town. Their seasonal subs are usually amazing. A Burbank classic. 261 W Olive Ave, Burbank, CA 91502
Super Tortas Mexican/Tortas Sun Valley <$10 Milanesa ($7.99) 7951 Vineland Ave, Sun Valley, CA 91352
Sweet Lily Bakery Cafe French Universal City $ 16+ Primarily a bakery, selling lots of sweets, The Parisien ($15) here is as good as it gets. 3315 Cahuenga Blvd W, Los Angeles, CA 90068
Tallyrand Diner Burbank $10-$15 Hot Turkey Sandwich (14.95): "Huell Howser's Favorite!" This thing is fucking funny. It's a Thanksgiving Dinner sandwich: Oven-roasted turkey (white and dark meat) on nothing special white bread, comes with stuffing, and mashed potatoes. Then, all of it is covered in gravy, including the ENTIRE sandwich. It's ridiculous and I love it. To be honest, I don't eat this thing often, but I do go to Tallyrand all the time. All the diner staples they make are great, the cinnamon roll is enormous and the best I've ever had, and their muffins are amazing. 1700 W Olive Ave, Burbank, CA 91506
The Heights Deli Italian Deli Lincoln Heights $10-$15 Ave 26 ($12.75): All-around great, quality subs, with an amazing selection of beers and wines.

2927 N Broadway, LA, CA 90031

2135 N San Fernando Rd, Los Angeles, CA 90065

The Sammiche Shoppe American Downtown Inglewood <$10 Lucy Mae Air Fried Chicken ($9.25): To me, a no-frills gold standard of American sandwiches. Their more simple fare reminds me of what my dad made me for school lunch growing up. 222 E Regent St, Inglewood, CA 90301
Uncle Paulie's Italian Deli Multiple locations $10-$15 Artichoke Caprese (vegetarian), something I haven’t had on a sandwich before and I’m all about it. Lots of arugula that give a deliciously soft crunch. Bread has a nice and firm, yet flexible crust. Downtown: 820 S. Spring Street Los Angeles, Ca. 90014
Studio City: 3990 Vantage Avenue Studio City, Ca. 91604
3rd St./Beverly Grove: 8053 W. 3RD Street Los Angeles, CA. 90048
Viet Noodle Bar Vietnamese Atwater Village $10-$15 A modestly sized fella that's not gonna wreck your day. Don't think I've ever had a turmeric sandwich in LA before and I'm all about it. 3133 Glendale Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90039
Vince's Market Market Sandwich Atwater Village <$10 Simple and cheap as hell, with most of their sandwiches under $5. 3250 Silver Lake Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90039
Vinh Loi Tofu Vietnamese Reseda $10-$15   18625 Sherman Way #101, Reseda, CA 91335
Wax Paper New American Frogtown $10-$15 Audie Cornish ($14.50): So many great flavors and textures going on with this sandwich. Gun to my head, I will literally never remember which NPR personality the sandwich I want to order is named after.

2902 Knox Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90039

736 N Broadway Suite 106, Los Angeles, CA 90012

Wendy's Tortas Mexican/Tortas Lincoln Heights <$10 Pierna y Lomo ($7.99): The best torta I've ever had. More of a sit-down restaurant than other places on this list, with a menu full of great Mexican classics and fantastic staff. They also have buckets of beer and plenty of TVs playing local sports as well as Mexican soccer. 2603 N Main St, LA, CA 90031
