Alex's Cypriot Sandwiches
England has an odd obsession with dejected pre-made sandwiches. Few foods give off the air of an unhappy divorce more than an Arctic triangle of tuna sweetcorn. Yet so often we settle for them despite better options all over London. One such option is Alex’s Cypriot Sandwiches in Southgate. This little takeaway deli makes hulking, layered creations filled with lountza, loukanika, and halloumi on crusty sesame-clad subs. As far as sandwiches that are big enough to be weaponised go, these are up there. They’re also excellent. The smoked pork and fennel-laced sausage is superb and Cypriot locals are in every lunchtime for sandwiches and soup that some say is even better than back home.
