HYPEBEAST Eats... Porchetta Sandwich by Meat & Bread

Situated in Vancouver’s emergent Gastown district, Meat & Bread is a specialty sandwich shop that opened its doors in 2010. Only slightly more striking than the shop’s location bordering the notorious downtown east-side is its distinctive and genuine interior aesthetic. Clever branding mixed with a rustic yet inviting style has allowed Meat & Bread to easily stand out amongst other eateries in the area. One of the shop’s signature dishes is a hearty porchetta sandwich. Joe and the guys behind the counter were nice enough to give us a tutorial on how to make this dish.

If you’re in Vancouver, stick your head in this spot on Cambie St. and try one of the many delicious sandwiches on their menu. Even try making the porchetta yourself at home using sambal, mustard, and seasoning salt that is also conveniently sold at Meat & Bread.
