The Serious Eats Guide to Sandwiches, the International Edition
We've already covered many of the sandwich styles in America; it's now time to travel the globe. In this guide you'll find Vietnamese banh mis, Mexican tortas, Turkish kebabs, British bacon buttys, and so many more international sandwich varieties. Quite a few of these have become staples outside of their homelands. See them all in the slideshow! Please chime in to let us know which ones we missed.
Note: some of these are wrapped in pitas or steamed buns, but still count as honorary members of the sandwich genre in our minds.
