카사블랑카 샌드위치. Moroccan sandwiches and lentil soup at Casablanca Sandwicherie

33 Sinheung-ro Yongsan-gu

(Information from Groove Korea) Everything on their menu is good, but the Moroccan chicken sandwich is the best sandwich in Seoul. They sell out every day. The Naciri brothers have managed to take many disparate ingredients, apply to them their knowledge of tradition Moroccan food and various time-consuming techniques, and distill them into one glorious whole. Just as important as the makooda and chicken is the vehicle for them, in this case French bread from a Syrian bakery in Itaewon. Each sandwich comes on half of an almond-shaped loaf. It’s crunchy on the outside, but once you start eating it smashes down and molds to your hand. The sandwich comes dressed with lettuce, tomato, olives, dill pickles and mayonnaise. The combination of crunchy bread, soft makooda and firm chicken breast is a feat of texture combination. Casablanca opens at 5 p.m. and closes whenever the bread runs out.
