My Sandwich?... MY SANDWICH?... M.Y S.A.N.D.W.I.C.H... I can still hear Ross from F.R.I.E.N.D.S losing it over his Thanksgiving leftover sandwich with a "moist maker". And why wouldn't he, it's the single most dish that's simple yet delicious. Wherever you go, fancy restaurants or nukkad vale bhaiya, you can find sandwiches anywhere.


While homemade sandwiches have my heart, but the foodie in me keeps looking for new innovations I can devour. And what are the chances that I found some? 


So here's a list of 7unconventional, not-so-basic and yummy sandwiches across the country that you at least gotta try once.

6. Yalla Habibi Sandwich @Big Fat Sandwich (New Delhi)

Price: INR 320


Not that this sandwich is strange but the ingredients sure are. Big Fat Sandwich's Yalla Habibi Sandwich has made to the list of unusual sandwiches for a reason. Don't believe me? Follow me as I spell those out for you. Zatar marinated chicken (so far so good), Labneh (FYI, it's a yoghurt cheese but sounds normal), Hummus (sure, why not), beetroot pickles (umm...okay!) and finally BFS hot sauce. I know right... I had the same reaction but everything will fall in place as soon as you take the first bite. It will be like a storm of middle-eastern flavours in your mouth in the form of a delightful sandwich.

7. Stuffed Paneer/Chicken Makhani Kulcha Sandwich @Wild Sugar Patisserie & Cafe (Pune)

Price: INR 149/INR 189


Giving a desi twist to good ol'sandwiches is our age-old habit and I don't know about you, but I am quite a fan. Eating Kulcha with a generous filling of panner or chicken and a special makhani sauce like a sandwich is an odd event we all secretly want to be a part of. So, no matter what everyone tells you if your heart says it's worth trying, do check this place out for one such unusual sandwich experience. You're welcome.
