Discover the year of the sandwich

1762
Address: The Gourmet Deli
Tel: 800 1762

1762? No that’s not a new male salon, but the year the sandwich was first recorded, when the 4th Earl of Sandwich ordered his valet to bring him meat tucked between two pieces of bread, allowing him to continue playing cards without getting his hands too greasy. We’ve long been hankering for a good old fashioned sandwich deli, and the guys behind Appetite (those fresh crunchy salads and wraps), have opened 1762, The Gourmet Deli Co at DIFC. Expect queues of bankers, but it’s well worth the wait – until they sort out delivery. Try the roast beef Yorkshire pudding wrap – complete with horseradish and gravy. Top it up with rosemary roast potato wedges and digest with swig of home made pink lemonade.
