Award-winning sandwich kings Ben Chancellor and Gareth Phillips, AKA Sub Cult, have announced their first bricks and mortar site will open in the heart of the City in June. Located under the gaze of St. Paul’s Cathedral, it will offer 14 covers inside, as well as a takeaway counter for those busy City workers looking for breakfast or lunch on-the-go.
The inaugural shop builds upon five years of street food experience, over which the duo have served up their subs from their gazebo, Soul Roller van and, more recently, two shipping containers. New subs on the menu include the Subano, Sub Cult’s take on a Cubano; and the Queen Bee, a new special paying homage to Queen Boudicca, which comprises slow roasted chicken, smoked ham hock and wild garlic aioli.
Chancellor said: “This really feels like a coming of age moment for the Sub Cult family. From a humble gazebo to our van, to kitchen residencies and shipping containers, we have now arrived at this, our first bricks and mortar premises. A lot of dreams have been fulfilled with this venture, so it’s a pinch yourself moment to be anchoring at such a buzzing spot. We can’t wait to serve up our subs to our fans and new customers.”
