Things between bread, along with cups of tea and intermittently huffing, are the great unifiers of the UK. Sadly, the ones at Sons and Daughters are a little divisive. They read excellently - roasted chicken with miso mayo, prawns with prawn crackers, egg and truffle crisps - but, like DHL man between the hours of 12-8pm, fail to deliver. Some elements take over, like the pickled cucumber in the chicken sandwich, while others barely feature, like the prawns in the prawn sandwich. The egg and mortadella sandwiches are the best of the bunch but, all in all, you’ll likely expect more from a sandwich that costs just under a tenner.
