    L.A. is a city built on lunches. Come one o'clock, practically every seat from the beach to the Rose Bowl is filled with finance kids negotiating, agents powerbrokering, actors reading scripts, and even us plebs just looking for a yummy meal. But, what do you get when you don't want to brown bag it, but also don't need to walk away with a $50 check? You turn to your trustiest lunchtime staple: the sandwich.

    And in this city, you won't be stuck with ham and cheese or turkey on rye. To mix it up, we've rounded up the most unexpected and hunger-inducing combos that exist between two slices of bread. Whether it's a deli classic, a local vegetarian specialty, or a spicy number hailing from Spain, these delicious options have you covered from Santa Monica to Glendale. Just don't let food coma (or carb overload) take you down—there's still work to be done, kiddos!
