Cafe De La Barra in Santiago, Chile

Traveling is another one of my passions that I don’t get to partake in as much as sandwiches. So when I do get a chance to get out of Southern California I do my best to try sandwiches outside of my comfort zone. Don’t get me wrong, I like things other than sandwiches, but there’s something that is so cross cultural about them. You can pretty much find sandwiches anywhere you go!

The Ace of Sandwiches

When people hear the name “Ace of Sandwiches” they usually equate it to playing cards. When I first heard the name, I immediately pictured a Top Gun-esque fighter pilot who would do everything without a shirt on. Don’t ask me why, I wouldn’t be able to explain it. I was in Palo Alto, California working at […]


Olde Tyme Grocery

Olde Tyme Grocery in Lafayette has the reputation of being one of the best sandwich because it’s popular with University students and a must for Catholics during lent. Why is it popular during lent? Because on Wednesdays & Fridays Catholics abstain from eating meat, making Olde Tyme Grocery’s seafood Po’Boys the best option in town.   […]


Emirates Palace, Abu Dhabi UAE

I have two passions in life. You should’ve figured out at least ONE of these passions (I actually take time out of my day to write about sandwiches for God’s sake). My other passion is travel, where I can try sandwiches outside of California (like in the Emirates Palace). I also try to experience other […]


Meat & Bread, Vancouver BC Canada

In the coastal city of Vancouver BC Canada there is a gem of a sandwich shop called Meat & Bread, an artisanal restaurant that emphasizes quality meats with a revolving daily menu. The interior of the restaurant felt like a classic butcher shop with a certain pragmatic design sense.This place felt like it was stripped […]


Peckinpah Vancouver BC,Canada

My time in Vancouver BC,  Canada may have been short, but it was not short in flavor. In the historic Gas Town of Vancouver I found myself on the coastline in front of a statue affectionately dedicated to a local hero named “Gassy Jack” who built a saloon there with the help of local sawmill […]


Philadelphia’s Reading Terminal Market

After my busy weekend in Raleigh, North Carolina I landed in Los Angeles International airport jetlagged, full, and excited for my next adventure in another city. I only had 2 nights back home before I would leave again for the city of Philadelphia, PA for the event “Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con.” I for the life […]


Vy Goes to Raleigh, North Carolina

I recently obtained a job with the popular nerdy clothing site where I get to go and run their booths at various pop culture conventions around the world (awesome!). My first assignment was the Japanese Pop-culture convention “Animazement” in Raleigh, North Carolina where I was hit with the unforgiving humidity of the Southern United […]


Tino’s Bar, Santiago Chile

There is a street in the Bellavista neighborhood of Santiago called Pio Nono that not only leads to Pablo Neruda’s house La Chascona but is also filled with bars, clubs, and restaurants. I was a little reticent to try “Tino’s Bar” because I thought it was just a place to grab a drink, but I kept walking by […]


Ciudad Vieja, Santiago Chile

I really lucked out when it came time to choose my hostel in Santiago. I went with one of the most fairly priced and and highest rated hostels on and it turned out to be great, because I am a block away from what I think was my favorite sandwich places in South America so […]


Aito sandwich, Rapa Nui Chile

The capital town of Hanga Roa boasts many restaurants, it’s the only place on the island where you can really do or get anything on island. That being said, it gets hard to find places in the town that serve different styles of food. This restaurant actually shared a deck with 2 other restaurants with […]
