Do you think you could finish the whole thing in one sitting?
California Sandwiches came to Montreal in 2019 via Toronto, where it was already an institution, established in 1967. It's been a staple of Rue Saint-Denis ever since.
The menu includes a veal sandwich, chicken sandwich, eggplant sandwich, steak sandwich, and meatball sandwich.
There are also mini versions of some of the sandwiches (which are pretty much similar to the size of a regular sandwich, then).
According to MTL Blog's food correspondent, Alex Melki, the sandwiches live up to the hype.
"I feel like I'm at someone's nonna's house and she just made me dinner and she's like, 'You gotta eat some more,' and I'm like, 'No I already have the sandwich' and she's like, 'No, no. You gotta eat some more,'" he says.
California Sandwiches is located at 1748, rue Saint-Denis or you can get your massive sandwiches delivered on Uber Eats.

Why You Need To Go: Just like nonna would make — meaning, it'd be impossible to leave hungry.
It's the return of the bagel wars. The longstanding Twitter debate — in which New Yorkers, Montrealers and sometimes New Jerseyans (???) fight over their local recipes for bread with a hole in the middle — has reignited.
And Montrealers aren't going down without a fight.
This time, in addition to their usual New York counterparts, Quebec bagel lovers are facing off with Californians and what looks like a growing neutral faction arguing that the debate is silly and that bagels all basically taste the same.
Among Montreal bagel lovers, there's also the usual splintering of the conversation into arguments about Fairmount and Saint-Viateur bagels.
Interestingly, in some cases, it looks like Montrealers and New Yorkers have stopped targeting each other and are instead saving their strongest feelings for California. Could this be the beginning of a new alliance?
The best bagels are in MONTREAL. https://t.co/kzOpcmgSQD
Harris attended Westmount High School. In August, when Biden chose Harris as his running mate, the school tweeted that its community "couldn’t be more proud" of its alumna.
In her memoir, Harris wrote that, as a child and teenager, she had mixed emotions about living in Quebec, "[adjusting] to [her] new surroundings" by high school but feeling a "constant sense of yearning to be back home."
She also struggled with French.
"I used to joke that I felt like a duck because all day long at our new school I'd be saying 'Quoi? Quoi? Quoi?'" she wrote.
She went on to attend Howard University in Washington, D.C.
Harris was the attorney general of California before becoming a senator in 2017.
I don't know about you guys, but ice cream sandwiches are honestly my FAVORITE snack during the summer and this ice cream shop has combined cookie dough and rainbows to make the ULTIMATE ice cream sammiche. Yes, your mind has been blown with this aesthetically beautiful dessert that will have your mouth watering ALL. DAY. LONG.
Unfortunately, you can only quench your “Rainbow Cookie Dough” Ice Cream sandwich desires if you head to the store called Birthday Cake located in California. I don't know how I missed it last time I went to Cali to visit my family! But trust me, I am going ASAP and hopefully this will inspire a local Montreal store to take a leap into rainbow goodness. Oh, and if you check out their Instagram you will find even more INSANE treats that MUST come to MTL ASAP.
