Fin Spiteri’s Top 5 Posh Sandwiches in London

Fin Spiteri, General Manager at Rochelle Canteen at the ICA, shared his top five posh sandwiches in London.

Ham egg n chips at Max's Sandwich Shop

Ham, Egg & Chips at Max’s Sandwich Shop. Fin says, ‘This monster sarnie is no joke — masses of ham and crunchy shoestring fries dripping in egg yolk. A meal between slices of freshly baked focaccia and something I eat as often as I can!’

Max’s Sandwich Shop, 19 Crouch Hill, N4 4AP


Smoked Eel Sandwich at Quo Vadis. Fin says, ‘Nothing reminds me of Jeremy Lee’s elegance more than this refined, smoky delicacy. The bite from the horseradish perfectly complements the smoke from the fish and the pickled onions provide just the right about of zing. A masterpiece.’

Quo Vadis, 26–29 Dean Street, W1D 3LL


Ham Hock Muffin at Brunswick House. Fin says, ‘A breakfast sandwich, this is the perfect way to start the day. If I’m ever nearby it’s definitely my go to — imagine a McMuffin crafted by the gods!’

Brunswick House, 30 Wandsworth Road, SW8 2LG


Thigh Bun at Guinea Fowlers. Fin says, ‘Nepotism rules apparently, but this creation by my brother is unreal. Beautifully fried moist guinea fowl thigh in a fresh brioche bun with spicy harissa ketchup is always going to be a winner!’

Guinea Fowlers, Rupert Street Market, 51–53 Rupert Street, W1D 7PQ

wine and rind

Cheese Toast at Wine & Rind. Fin says, ‘Nothing beats a perfect cheese toastie. Nothing. Ever. And this is that.’

Wine & Rind, 1 Holcombe Road, N17 9JX
