Think sandwiches are just bland and boring? Wrap your chops around these five bites and think again…
If your usual cheese and ham sarnie just isn’t cutting the mustard anymore, maybe it’s time to switch things up and get one of these delectable creations delivered instead. There are pitas piled high with marinated meat, pizza dough sandwiches filled with fresh Italian fare and Japanese bao buns bursting with spices. So next time the lunchtime munchies come calling, you know what to do…
Tofu Bao Bun from Yuzu Street Food
Light and fluffy in all the right places, Yuzu Street Food’s Bao Buns are simply irresistible, especially when filled with their Fried Tofu. You’ll get a big wedge of tofu that’s rolled in a spiced crumb and deep-fried until crisp and golden. Finished off with hot sriracha mayo, pickled cucumber and sweet red onion, all squeezed into an oh-so-soft bun, you’ll get a tantalising medley of tasty flavours and textures in each bite.
Yuzu Street Food, Brew York, 68-72 New Briggate, Leeds, LS1 6NU. Order deliveries on Uber Eats.
Hash Brown Tower from Son of a Bun
The Hash Brown Tower is a beast of a burger. You’ll get a double portion of succulent fried chicken thighs and golden hash browns, sandwiched between two toasted brioche buns. But that’s just the start because thick rashers of bacon, gooey cheddar cheese, sliced tomato, shredded lettuce and red onion are also piled on to complete this almighty stack. Pair it with fries for a proper feast.

Chicken Gyros from Santorini Bar and Grill
This Chicken Gyros from Santorini Bar and Grill is packed full of Greek goodness. We’re talking sizzling skewers of marinated chicken, fresh off the grill and piled into fluffy Cypriot-style pitas. The chicken comes coated in their lip-smacking house marinade, but you can always kick things up a notch with an extra-spicy blend. Whichever you choose, it’ll come with a pot of cooling tzatziki, a fresh tomato salad and a whole heap of skin-on-fries.
Santorini Bar and Grill, 55 Otley Road, Headingley, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS6 3AB. Order deliveries on Uber Eats.
The Tetley Toastie from The Tetley Bar & Kitchen
The folk at The Tetley whip up a cheese toastie like no other. Forget plain old cheddar, you can look forward to tangy blue, toasted with chestnut mushrooms and leeks between two thick slices of sourdough bread. It’s already full of deliciousness, but the final addition of garlic butter takes it to the next level. It’s only available on Saturdays, so why not make it your next weekend treat?

Panuozzi from Pizza Loco
A cross between a pizza and a panini, Panuozzi is a speciality from the town of Gragnano in Italy and you can try one right here in Leeds from Pizza Loco. The bread is made from pizza dough and baked in a wood-fired oven to make it deliciously crisp before it’s stuffed with fresh Italian ingredients. The Melanzane will give you a real taste of the Med, with roasted peppers, aubergine, scamorza, fior di latte, capers, rocket and lemon aioli.
