We started to feel like a rabbit in a warren as we criss-crossed, double-backed, and eventually retraced our steps trying to find Chez Louis, a brilliant sandwich spot tucked in a corner inside labyrinthine food hall Mercato Metropolitano. We knew we’d found the right place when we spied a sandwich maestro sizzling broccoli to order, whipping goats' cheese mousse, and smearing satay mayonnaise. These sandwiches make your regular ham and cheese look like child’s play. The ciabatta is the perfect crisp on the outside, soft in the middle vessel for the delicious fillings—chermoula and marinated lamb, pork lechon kawali. During peak times expect a bit of a wait, but you’re right next to German Kraft Beer so you can always grab a Bavarian pilsner to kill the time. It's worth it, for well-stuffed sandwiches that work just as well for filling lunches as they do for dinner.
