After months of only eating Subway sandwiches, I decided to see what the hype was all about and go to Casablanca. :Loads have friends have told me Casablanca serves the best sandwich in town, and it did not disappoint. The prices are reasonable (6,000 to 7,000 won), and the sandwiches are large and filling. Each sandwich comes on a delicious, flaky, soft french baguette (similar bread to Banh Mi sandwiches in Vietnam). We ordered the famous Moroccan chicken sandwich (7000 won), a Lamb Chili sandwich (7000 won), a spiced carrot salad (2000 won), and a Thai beer (3000 won). I could definitely see why the Moroccan chicken sandwich got dubbed the best sandwich in Seoul (http://groovekorea.com/article/best-sandwich-seoul/). What I loved about my sandwich was how thick it was and the quality of ingredients. The grilled chicken pieces were large and perfectly marinated and seasoned with the perfect amount of spices. The sandwich also comes with fried potatoes, mayo (although it tasted more like a tzatziki sauce to me), and salad. While I didn't try it, my friend ate the Lamb chili sandwich and loved it. So, if you're craving a sandwich and want a change from boring Subway, I highly recommend checking this restaurant out.
Hours: Casablanca opens at 1PM everyday, and is open until 10. However, when we went at around 8:30 they only had 2 Moroccan chicken sandwiches left, and shortly after they were sold out of most of their sandwiches. So going late at night might not be the best option.
Directions:take subway line 6 to Noksapyeong station, and go out exit 2. Keep walking for about 5 minutes until you see a road on your left. Walk up this street for about 5-8 minutes and Casablanca will be on your left.
