This MTL Deli Makes The Most Creative Sandwiches, And You MUST Try The Fried Calamari One

This sandwich shop opened in June 2020 and has been making a statement in the Montreal sandwicherie scene ever since.

Especially with items like the fried calamari sandwich, which is made of a homemade brioche bun, calamari breaded with polenta, caesar dressing with roasted anchovies, bacon bits, parmesan shavings, braised romaine lettuce, and fresh lettuce for a little crunch.

Maxime Gagné, manager of Mitch Deli, told MTL Blog that the sandwich was inspired by two super popular starters, fried calamari and caesar salad. "Why can't we put these together?" he thought to himself.

You may not see this on the online menu and that's on purpose — The team is constantly changing up the menu and is full of surprises based on locally sourced food.

"We have a good relationship with all of our producers. It's important to us to be eco-conscious," Gagné says.

This place is totally worth the trip, and if you feel like just hanging out at home, you can get Mitch Deli on all of the apps.
