Where To Get A Christmas Sandwich In Dublin

It may be only November but Christmas sandwiches are coming in hot, fast and with all the trimmings - and not a moment too soon if you ask us. Here's where to get a Christmas sandwich in Dublin right now, and we'll be updating this list as more hit menus.

Christmas Sambo Slam, Urbanity

Urbanity always go the extra mile, and it's no different with their Chistmas sandwiches. They've just launched their "Chrimbo Sambo Slam", with a different sandwich each week for the next three weeks, and the ones with the most votes and sales coming back for Christmas week. First in line is a Christmas Banh Mì, with miso & honey glazed ham, sprout & Chinese cabbage slaw, pickled carrot & parsnip, garlic & herb kewpie mayo, cranberry & chili sauce, and fresh coriander, with a five-spice gravy for dipping.

There's also a veggie option on for the month, with maple & cider roasted butternut squash, kale & pecan pesto, brie, rocket, cranberry chutney, and stuffing pangrattato on Tartine sourdough

The Christmas Special, 147 Deli

Rarely have we seen the level of excitement reserved for the 147 Deli Christmas special, from anyone who's ever eaten it. It's got honey-glazed ham, turkey, bacon fat sprouts, crispy bacon crumb, Brie, sage & hazelnut stuffing, and cranberry sauce on granary bread, served with a side of chicken wing gravy. Join the queue.

Xmas Special, Tír Deli

Another sandwich with a legion of fans from last year is Tír Deli's Xmas Special. They take turkey breast from Feighcullen farm, stuff in turkey sausage made from leg meat, and roll it into a 'turketta', before cooking it sous vide for six hours for maximum juice. Then they add house-smoked ham, house gravy, cheddar, Christmas tree mayo and cranberry sauce, load it onto a ciabatta and toast it. We've already had reports that it's as good as ever.

Spiced Beef Christmas Sambo, Daddy's

Daddy's in Rialto are mixing it up this year and we love to see it. From now until the 23rd of December you can get your hands on their Christmas sandwich special with Ennis Butcher spiced beef, McNally's organic brussel sprout and cranberry slaw, and house horseradish mayo, on 30% rye organic Tartine sourdough. If you're around Rialto way you should also pop into The Cupcake Bloke for one of his smoked bacon, pear and cheddar mince pies.

Christmas Bao, Soup, Dun Laoghaire

Bored of bread? Sick of stuffing? Soup in Dun Laoghaire have the remedy. Their Christmas bao features pulled turkey in Korean spiced cranberry sauce, bacon and bourbon jam, and miso parsnip purée. Our heart rate's gone up just thinking about it.

The Christmas Sambo, Póg

Póg's ultra cheesy sandwich is back on the menu in all locations. They fill their sourdough with turkey, ham, brie, homemade stuffing, cranberry sauce and mayo, and toast it to get the cheese all melty.

The Veggie Festive Sandwich, Queen of Tarts

For all of you complaining about the lack of veggie Christmas sandwiches, Queen of Tarts have just launched theirs, with brie, red cabbage and pumpkin seed pesto on homemade focaccia. Non-veggies can also add bacon.

The Kevin Mc Callister, SUP Coffee Shop

SUP Coffee know a thing or two about coffee, and apparently now Christmas sandwiches. 'The Kevin McCallister' comes with more honey and mustard glazed ham than we ever get on Christmas day, aswell as roast turkey, Christmas stuffing, turkey and stuffing crisps (yum), Applewood smoked cheddar, cranberry mayo, and rocket leaves on ciabatta. We can see why it's likely to sell out so DM to preorder.

Christmas Special, Leroy's

A lot of R&D goes into a good Christmas sandwich, and reckon the guys at Leroy's put the time into this one. Roast turkey, smoked ham, bacon and cranberry jam, chestnut and sprout slaw, pickled beets, Brie and Christmas stuffing are served on crunchy ciabatta from Tartine Organic Bakery - we see your efforts guys and we appreciate them. DM them to order in advance or risk disappointment if you just rock up to Merrion Cricket Club.

Their seasonal sambo comes with roasted turkey, home-cooked ham, slow-braised red cabbage, herb stuffing, cheddar, mustard mayo, and cranberry sauce served on sourdough bread.
