Earl of Sandwich, the world’s greatest hot sandwich, recently opened its first store in Metro Manila. Located at the 4th Level Bridgeway, SM Megamall, Ortigas Center in Mandaluyong City, the restaurant will offer guests a unique, casual-quick dining option.
The new restaurant, which continues to have historical ties to the inventor of the sandwich, the Sandwich family, will be serve signature hot sandwiches including The Original 1762, a sandwich of freshly roasted beef, sharp cheddar and creamy horseradish sauce all on freshly baked artisan bread.
Soups, salads, wraps and desserts also are on the menu. Earl of Sandwich offers a vast array of hot and cold beverages including The Earl’s Grey Lemonade. Breakfast sandwiches and pastries will be available in the morning and a variety of catering options will be offered at this location.
“The secret is our famous artisan bread, baked when you order, and traditional family recipes prepared with fresh ingredients,” said Alex Garland, Earl of Sandwich Managing Director for Europe, Middle East and Asia.
“Our menu pays tribute to the very art of the sandwich. From our signature namesakes like The Original 1762 and The Full Montagu, to our fresh salads, we believe in using the highest quality ingredients in everything we serve,” he added. “We believe that sandwiches are more than a convenience food; they should be carefully crafted and thoroughly enjoyed.”
But did you know that the Earl of Sandwich has a real royal beginning?
In 1762, John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich, invented the meal that changed dining forever. As the story goes, he was playing cards and did not want to leave the gaming table to eat. He asked for a serving of roast beef to be placed between two slices of bread so he could eat with his hands. Thus, the Sandwich was born. And who better to continue the tradition of the sandwich than the descendants of its inventor? In 2004, Lord John Montagu, the 11th Earl of Sandwich and his son, the Honorable Orlando Montagu, direct descendants of the inventor of the sandwich, partnered with Robert Earl, founder and CEO of Planet Hollywood, to launch the Earl of Sandwich restaurants. Some 250 years after the invention of the sandwich, Earl of Sandwich restaurants have embraced the idea and crafted it into a made-to-order, freshly baked sandwich like no other.
And now, Pinoys can taste the history (and the future) of this beloved sandwich!
“We are also looking forward to the opening of our next branch at the Ayala Malls, Bay Area Aseana Ave. in Parañaque City really soon,” stated Marissa Florete-Gorriceta, EVP – Marketing and Merchandising of F&C Group of Companies.
