Yesterday was World Sandwich Day but that does not mean you can’t continue to enjoy one and Mallorca has a some excellent bars and restaurants to enjoy a delicious sandwich any time of the year.

The history of the sandwich dates back to the 18th century when John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich in England, is said to have created the sandwich.
He was fond of playing cards and to avoid getting his fingers dirty while playing he wrapped the meat in two slices of bread - a sandwich.
