New York Sandwich Tour

Join your fellow sandwich fans on our most popular tour. Fill your belly and your mind on this East Village sandwich adventure!

Together we will visit foodie destinations that only NYC locals know about as we debate the question "what is a sandwich?", and answer it by eating different types of delicious sandwiches.

In addition to the delicious sandwiches, you will also hear stories about the history of the sandwich, and the people who make them. We'll also discover street art and learn about the history of New York too.

Come with an open mind, and leave with a FULL stomach (and an answer to whether or not a hotdog, a burger or a taco is a sandwich).

*Vegetarian options available, but not vegan or gluten-free (sorry!)

**Private tours are available for corporate teams. As experienced by Amazon, Google, Audible and more. 

***Don't see a day/time that suits you? Ask us for a new time and we can try to accommodate.

Brooklyn Sandwich Tour

Eat with the hipsters as you devour the best sandwiches in Williamsburg - the crown jewel of Brooklyn dining.

New York sandwiches are not confined to just New York City. Brooklyn also offers an amazing range of sandwiches to enjoy too!

In this experience, we will answer the question "what is a sandwich?" as we eat three different interpretations of the sandwich in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Together we'll visit destinations that you will not find in a typical tourist guidebook as we eat our way through the history and evolution of the sandwich.

Along the way, we'll hear stories about the venues we are eating at and the people who are making our food. We'll discover street art and we'll also learn how the people of Williamsburg have influenced the sandwich game in New York.

The Beers, Burgers and Buns Experience

Can’t decide between a bar crawl and a food tour whilst you’re in New York? Then why not join an experience that does both!

On the Beers, Burgers, and Buns experience we will do just what the title suggests - drink cold beer (or wine), eat delicious burgers, and bite into some (chicken) buns – as we walk through the fascinating neighborhood of the East Village.

Along the way, we’ll visit three unique bars and two dining spots, plus we’ll learn about the fascinating history of New York City – from the prohibition era to today – and hear the stories of the people behind the food and drink you will be enjoying. What more could you ask for?

This experience is only for those 21 years & older. EVERYONE must bring a valid ID.

Great for solo travelers, corporate groups, and private parties alike.

*Sadly this is not available for vegan and gluten-free diets. Sorry!

Corporate Events

Looking for a unique team-building event? Holiday party? Or just an excuse to get out of the office with your colleagues?

Then skip the same old tired work drinks or trivia nights and bring your team together with a devilishly delicious debate about whether a hotdog is a sandwich!

Our sandwich tours and cooking classes are perfect for corporate teams looking to enjoy a fun and interactive event filled with food, drink and laughter. We are experts at engaging your entire team (even the shy ones!) during our hotdog debate, and we ensure everyone is able to enjoy the amazing 'sandwiches' we share during our sandwich experiences.

We will happily work with you to customize our tours and classes are customizable to your group's needs - including all dietary restrictions - or you can just sit back, relax, and let us do all the work for you. Either way we'll make sure your stomach and your mind leave fulfilled.

Oh, and did we mention our walking tours all finish at a bar, just in case you want to keep the party (or sandwich debate) going once the tour is done?

Group discounts available for larger groups too - the more the merrier!

Send us a message via the Contact tab, or at ben@amanandhissandwich.com to inquire about how we can create the perfect sandwich event for your team

Location

New York Is A Foodie City

Since the early days of immigration at Ellis Island, New York has become a common ground for people of all nationalities. Each person brought a unique style of delicious food to the city. Kitchens serving authentic food were a way to reconnect with the culture deeply rooted in these future American citizens.

You'll find restaurants serving Italian food and wine next to an Argentinian restaurant that makes a perfectly-cooked steak with chimichurri. Irish immigrants brought the tasty corned beef and cabbage we enjoy today, while the Germans gave us the beloved hotdog. But perhaps the most famous sandwiches in the city are the pastrami on rye or the bagel & lox served at many Jewish delis.

Frequently asked questions

Most frequent questions and answers

Yes. Sandwiches are for everyone! For those with dietary restrictions though, please notify us beforehand.

**Vegetarian options available, but not vegan or gluten-free (sorry!)**

New York is a diverse city that has various sandwiches to offer. You can choose from hundreds of types of sandwiches according to your vibe, mood, and cravings.

We always want to create a great time for our guests, so expect a fun, delicious, and informative tour. We don't just eat or make sandwiches on the tours but we also break bread with our fellow sandwich lovers whilst sharing stories and finding new friends along the way.
