At this temple of bread, the sourdough is the star of the show and for good reason – Wild Life bakes some of Melbourne’s best. It’s properly tangy with a crunchy caramel crust and chewy crumb, and it shines as the foundation of thick toasted sandwiches with an abundance of melty Comté inside. The sweet and nutty cheese surrounds sticky, Worcestershire-coated onion, creating a comforting sanga that is simple and unfussy. It's equal parts hot, melty, savoury, sweet and crunchy, making for a sandwich you hope will never end.
Whether your hankering looks like white bread tuckshop jaffles or highbrow ingredients layered over the finest artisan sourdough, you’ll find hot pockets of joy in the five-star sarnies we’ve gathered below.
