If you're living on a local Shanghai salary, the ridiculousness of paying RMB 50 and up for a sandwich catches up to you. (Cue your mother here: Seven dollars for a sandwich!?!)
Answering those niggling voices, TOGO's Sandwich Express is the best new option in town for a cheap, filling and delicious sandwich or wrap. Most of their fresh offerings run around RMB 30.
Try the Roasted Vegetable Sandwich-a flavorful mix of eggplant, pumpkin, mushroom, greens, pesto and mozzarella cheese for RMB 30-or the basic BLT RMB 30, which comes packed with succulent bacon, fresh tomatoes, crisp lettuce and creamy mayo. Bigger spenders, pick from offerings such as Curry Chicken or Turkey Cranberry (RMB 35-RMB 38).
Fresh juices, salads and coffee round out the menu and if you SMS your order, it's 10 percent off: Free delivery should seal the meal.
