Timeout called them the ‘Sandwich Kings’... The Evening Standard named them ‘London’s Best Subs’ and NME recognised them as ‘Street Food Heroes’, and we wholeheartedly agree! Sub Cult make the most badass subs in the city, inspired by New York sandwich delis. Gaz Phillips, a former fine dining chef, invented all these stupendous subs so they are always lip smackingly good. The Feast It choice is The Rodeo, which is a beautiful and mouthwatering combination of sirloin steak, truffle mayonnaise, shallot jam, provolone cheese and pickled serrano chillies. Book Sub Cult and have their 1970s black camper van, The Soul Roller, rock up to your venue!
