My love of club sandwiches began when I first went on holiday with my friends and ate one practically every day for a whole week because it was an excellent hangover cure. Since my late teens, I have eaten a lot of them – but mainly abroad, while I am on holiday – it’s definitely become somewhat of a tradition of mine. From traditional club sandwiches to different takes,  I want to document club sandwiches from all across the globe and invite you to join me in this fun challenge. Next time you order one, take a photo and send it to me, telling me where it’s from and a mark out of 10. I’ll update the list whenever a new club sandwich is added. But for now, here are some of the best club sandwiches in the world…

The List: Club Sandwiches From Around The World


Carol from The Eternal Traveller shares her club sandwich treat with us. She says: ‘It was so delicious, made fresh to order and served very quickly. The bread was a sourdough, lightly toasted, the lettuce was fresh and crispy and there was a generous serve of bacon. We had one each on our first day in Broome and it was so tasty we went back on our last day for seconds. Score: 10/10

The Laundromat Cafe in downtown Reykyavík is a popular pitstop for tourists and locals. The Danish export is well known for its comforting food such as burgers, smoked salmon bagels, salads, cakes and amazing milkshakes. Of course, we couldn’t order a club sandwich. I was most impressed with the portion size. It was pretty mammoth – in fact, the bread itself was a little bit too thick. Once toasted, thick bread can be a weapon of destruction to the inner mouth. However, the chunky chicken was moist and tasty, there was plenty of bacon, while the chips were crispy with salty goodness. There was no egg, unfortunately. Score: 7/10

I’m a sucker for a club sandwich where the egg yolk shows through a little hole on the top. In fact, this is only the second place in my whole club sandwich eating history that it’s ever been served to me in this way. It was pretty difficult to eat without cutlery, but the toast was perfectly done to my taste – I like the bread to be more on the charred side. The ham was also good quality, while there wasn’t too much mayo or salad. My only gripe was the cheese was Emmental, which isn’t my favourite – it has a strong nutty flavour which was quite dominating. No matter, Monkey and I polished it off pretty quickly. Score: 7/10

The List: Club Sandwiches From Around The WorldThe traditional club was neat and compact in size and everything tasted as it should be. I felt there was a lack of filling overall, such as the bacon, cheese and mayonnaise. It was all a tad dry. I liked the fries in the bowl on the side, crisp and crunchy. Score: 6/10

The Centara Grand Beach Resort 1 Damnernkasem Road, Hua Hin 77110,  Thailand

The List: Club Sandwiches From Around The WorldI was hungry when I ordered this club, and I polished it off pretty quickly. But, the bread was a bit soggy, there were too many tomatoes, and rather than bacon, ham was used. I also felt they were a little stingy on the chips. Score: 5/10

Best Club Sandwiches Around The World | My Travel MonkeyThis club sandwich had all the usual trimmings but with the added luxury of prawns. It was massive and, with a large side of fries, I was unable to finish it. It could have easily fed myself and hubby. The bread was toasted to perfection, the chicken chargrilled and the mayo had a tangy flavour. Score: 8/10
