Off the wall sandwich ideas?

I work at a nanobrewery and we make pizza from scratch and have started a sandwich menu. We don't want to have the same sandwiches everybody has. I'm thinking wild game, pork belly, things like that. Do you guys and gals have any ideas or recipes for devastating sandwiches?

Thank you in advance!

Tuna salad on cinnamon raisin bread? How about lox and cream cheese on a blueberry bagel?

I would stick with readily available and fairly inexpensive food presented in a different way. The idea of buffalo, venison, ostrich, alligator all sound pretty exciting, I just don't think it would have that wide an appeal for the money you would need to charge. IMO the food should be interesting, plentiful and reasonably priced so it does not upstage the beer.

I would serve things beer drinkers have eaten over the years only amped up a little.

Liverwurst and onions with an interesting mustard on an artisan bread.

Wild boar sounds more exotic than pork and could be done in many ways, pulled pork, roast pork w/red onion, ground pork mixed with ground ham for a burger.

A great locally made hot dog, kielbasa or sausage.

A Ploughman's lunch with local sausage, local cheese, hard boiled or pickled eggs, some interesting condiments and a chunk of great bread.

Good luck!

I have to agree with Aunt Bea.

We had a wonderful restaurant around here that was famous for their huge Reubens, served on slabs of fresh baked toasted raisin bread. They sliced their own corned beef and pastrami and their sauerkraut was made on site, as was the dressing. One sandwich easily served at least 2 people, and was very reasonably priced, and the place was always busy. Sadly, the couple who owned the place retired.

One for the vegetarians - Wholemeal, granary or seeded bread with peanut butter and grated carrot. Yum!

Chicken with apricot jam and mayo.

Wholemeal or white bread with (canned) tuna, wasabi and pickled ginger - my favourite deli café does this one.

Good quality bread of course not mass-produced sliced white pap! (The inventor of the "Chorleywood Process" for commercial bread making has a lot to apologise for!)

Not game, sorry, but they are among my favourites.

Check out a local artisan bakery and promote their breads and rolls. They can shape your sandwich rolls any way you would like to create your distinct sandwiches.

I was thinking about this and if you already make your own pizza, I would go a step further and make some focaccia with things like olives, vegetables, herbs, cheese etc baked in and use that as the bread for some muffuletta type sandwiches.

I also think a cold meatloaf sandwich would be a great addition to a pub menu if it is done right.

I'd focus on making a signature slaw/dipping sauce/pickle/kimchi/meat that melts in your mouth. Way back when, I was a tour manager. One of the cities I would visit was Montreal. I fell in LOVE with a steak sandwich served at a little place just off St. Catherine's Street in the downtown core. What was so special about it? The steak melted in your mouth. The bun was a mini baguette, the sauce au jus, but the steak, it brought me back every time I was in Montreal.
