Paul, Old Compton Street

The Sausage and Bread blog goes upmarket! Paul is a patisserie chain that has stores all over London and beyond. It's not the kind of place you would expect to find a sausage sandwich but they do indeed sell them.

Well, to be exact what they sell is a salami baguette which is not the usual format of sandwich that I review but is nevertheless a combination of sausage and bread. And a very, very good one at that.

All I can say is that this sandwich can't be faulted. The salami is delicious and is served in a buttered, cheese-topped baguette with small, sliced picked gherkins inside. There is no sauce in the sandwich but it doesn't need any. The ingredients are in perfect proportion and the flavour of every one is allowed to come through. I dread to think what the calorie count might be but whatever it is, it's worth it. This is a great sandwich that really demonstrates that magic of combining sausage and bread.

5 out of 5!
