Royal Sandwich Shop on TTK Road Alwarpet started off with selling merely five kinds of sandwiches a day. Today, it's a huge empire that has more than 10 outlets in the city and sells over 2,000 sandwiches every day! What makes it so killer? It's the variety and pricing, of course.
They've got nearly 50 different kinds of sandwiches on offer. You get to choose from the usuals such as chutney, cheese, chicken, egg, and club, but we say go on and experiment a bit here. How often can you boast of eating a chocolate sandwich? Or even a gobi and paneer one! That too at only INR 50 (approximately). Some of the other interesting fillings include mushroom and cheese, prawn and mayo, paneer and khakhra, as well as chocolate ice cream sandwich. Yes, you read that right — Royal Sandwich Shop has ice cream sandwiches too!
While not fancy, the sandwiches, considering the average price is INR 50, fills you up and is worth every penny you pay. And there has been no compromise in the taste over the years — with its magical green chutney and a mystery recipe; it has become one of the most celebrated street food joints in Chennai. Fusion innovations such as the pasta sandwich and the Focaccia paneer grilled sandwiches are also quite popular among the residents. Royal Sandwich Shop also has pita bread and panini sandwiches. If you're new to the city, you've got to bookmark this place. It's fairly hygienic too!
