Everyone’s into sandwiches. Nothing beats eating one with a lot of fresh and handpicked greens stuffed between them. Add the softness and the crispy texture of the bread and you’re all set for one of life’s simplest pleasures. You’ll be hard to find someone who will turn down a sandwich. It all started way back to the time of John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich, who claims that he invented it. From that point, it has evolved into something more and for the better.
Sandwiches are pretty normal right now. A lot of restaurants offer them. There are also a lot of restaurants that serve sandwiches as their main food.
