The sandwich is such an important part of the day for people all over the world with many choosing it on a daily basis for their lunch.

A couple of slices of bread usually with some meat, cheese and greens can be one of the most amazing and also disappointing meals in the world. 

As I walked into the Pulled Meat Company on South Street in Valletta I was about to experience not only the best sandwich in Malta but also one of the best I'd eaten anywhere in the world.

A quick look at how they cook their meat tells you all you need to know. "Low and slow" cooking gives it a wonderful smokey BBQ taste, and they cook everything here in this style including vegetables. 

I'd been attracted in by the incredible special of the day "Pulled pork pie with a soft boiled egg in the middle". Being the pig that I am I had one for a starter and my god was it good. Lovely light crispy pastry, delicious meat and the egg oozing all over in glorious style.

While the pie was good it was the sandwich that stole the show. I went for the chicken reggiano melt, with a harissa mayo.

Wonderful crispy bread (an absolute must for a good sandwich and that is one thing the Maltese excel at) was filled with heaps of smoked and spicy chicken. 

It was one of those experiences that I never wanted to end and were it not for having the pie for a starter I might just have gone back for a second. 

Expect a queue if you get here during a busy time. Then what else would you expect from a place serving the best sandwich on the island? Pure quality.
