Why is it that taking a sandwich to work for lunch is never a viable option? Answer: there is a 1000% chance it’ll get soggy-as, losing all integrity. Let us not even discuss the difficulty of finding a sandwich-optimised, public-transport, bottom-of-the-tote-ready vessel. Not easy. Switch to that work-from-home life and eating a sanga for lunch is well-and-truly back on the table, and we’re so glad. To help you assemble yours we’ve curated a list of our fave local producers, products and more that’ll take that sandwich from drab to fab.

The Outer Layer:
TOL is whatever you choose to cover your sandwich’s innards. I guess typically it’s bread, but it could be a white corn tortilla, or perhaps it’s a loaded focaccia on your lunch plate, we never judge. The main point is, it must be soft yet sturdy to hold the goodness within.

  • Cafe Paci potato and molasses bread
  • Iggy’s delivery
  • Pioik Bakery delivery
  • Marta Roman bakery
  • Cherry Moon General Store

  • Dairy/Creamy Bits:
    A good sandwich needs a little something rich in the middle. Maybe it’s a mayo, maybe it’s a healthy slab of Maffra cheddar, you do you. Make it OOZE. Ooze is often achieved by a rich element, people.

    It goes without saying, a sandwich is only as good as the tableware it’s eaten off or among. Well, not really, but looking at a lovely bunch of flowers or pinching your toasted cheese sanga off a hand-painted plate is surely going to elevate your experience by at least 23% (source: Buffet et al., 2020).
