These ingenious sandwiches will make you drool

Is there anything that doesn’t taste better in a sandwich? New eatery The Carving Board reckons not.

The LA fast food restaurant is best known for having no truck with clean-eating Hollywood trends and instead sticking the yummiest of freshly-made comfort food between two slices of bread. Now brothers David and Yoav Adir who founded it have brought the carb-licious concept to City Walk Dubai.

There are more than 50 hot and cold sandwiches on the menu, including fan favourite the Spaghetti and Meatballwich; ready for Thanksgiving, the Turkey Dinner (complete with cranberry sauce) and specially for Dubai, the Emirati – sliced turkey breast, goat cheese, baby spinach, avocado, tomatoes, walnut date spread on a multi cereal. There is also a range of funky chunky beef and turkey burgers and – be still our beating heart – five grilled cheese sandwiches that definitely won’t give us nightmares.

Prices start from AED 30 and coffee is courtesy of local organic brand Boon. Oh, and every sandwich can be converted into a salad, if you’re all about that #lowcarblife.

Branches of The Carving Board are also due to open at Onyx Tower in Barsha Heights and Dubai Mall in 2018.

City Walk 2. Open 8am-11am daily. 04 272 0516.
