This place does not need an introduction because if you live in Vancouver, you know that Meat & Bread is the place to be when your craving basically meat and bread! The idea of putting meat and bread is simple but the flavor and quality that you get is over the top good! I'm sure almost everyone has tried, heard of and loved this place as much as I have but if you haven't yet and your reading this now.. I would suggest you to put this on your list of go to places here in Vancouver and go now! (ok maybe not now but go out and try it when you can! you won't be disappointed!)
Meat and Bread is a small sandwich shop that packs a heck of flavor and quality into their sandwiches. After getting rave reviews on their sandwiches (especially their Porchetta Sandwich) and also being featured in articles and on Food Network (Diners, Drive Ins and Dives). They have recently expanded their sandwich awesomeness into a new location on West Pender and like their Gastown location, customers are still lining up like crazy out the door! Compared to their store in Gastown, this place has a bigger counter area. Seating on the other hand, is more limited unlike the long table that the other location has. However there are benches outside the store for you to sit on so it's not as big of a deal if the seating is full inside especially during summer time. When fall/winter comes however, I'm not so sure if sitting outside may be the best option but for now since Vancouver is getting warmer, eating outside is one of the best ways to enjoy both your sandwich and the beautiful weather that were starting to have. The menu in this location is a little bit different than the one in Gastown. They still serve their signature Porchetta sandwich and their always changing daily specials but instead of the meatball and grilled cheese, they have corned beef and a weekly changing vegetarian option.
