Cheap Sandwich Shop Guide LA
Michael Voltaggio’s little sandwich shop, Ink.Sack, has big and mature tastes. Don’t expect your normal turkey and cheddar here ladies! Their “reuben” is made with corned beef tongue and their “Tuna sandwich” is a spicy tuna made with miso-cured albacore and sriracha. There are other options that are more normal such as their cold fried chicken sandwich with ranch dressing and turkey melt! Everything is FAB and so on your budget! The sandwiches are small so opt for two $5 or $4 options!
8360 Melrose Ave., Ste. 107, West Hollywood, 323- 655-7225.
This sandwich shop has a few locations around LA, I would suggest trying their newest location on Third and Fairfax. The Mendocino Farms sandwiches are always unique and filling. I leave wishing I had only eaten half but it is just so damn good! My favs- “The Sandwich Study of Heat”- a turkey and avocado pressed number with jalapeno relish and smoked gouda! That option will run your $9.50!

-Boo’s Philly Cheesesteaks-
Philly holds a special place in my heart as I went to college there and fell in love with the city. One of the best things about Philly is the food! Foodie central that is and the most famous dish is of course the Philly Cheesesteak. Try Boo’s Philly Cheesesteaks in Silver Lake for a sandwich that is yummy with the perfect amounts of cheese, steak and onions. My mouth is watering!
