Kasama Combo at Kasama

Chef Tim Flores made this twist on the classic combo as an ode to some of his favorite childhood Chicago flavors. He roasts pork shoulder in an adobo jus, slices the meat, and loads it into a roll with a housemade longanisa sausage. Flores dips the whole thing in adobo jus and, naturally, finishes it with hot giardiniera. $11. 1001 N. Winchester Ave., East Ukrainian Village

Bun Omelet at Superkhana International

This vegetarian number features egg custard mixed with a masala of tomatoes, onions, garlic, butter, and chiles, topped with a slice of gooey Amul cheese, and tucked between slices of fluffy, buttery bread baked in-house. It’s the perfect sandwich to start your day — though you can get it until 2 p.m. $8. 3059 W. Diversey Ave., Logan Square

Ham Beurre at Bungalow by Middle Brow

The ingredients for this Midwest twist on the French sandwich are almost exclusively local. The ham is from Slagel Family Farm, and the cultured butter from Kilgus Farmstead’s creamery. The sourdough baguette is made in house, as is the blend of Illinois honey and Spence Farm peppers that’s drizzled on top. Only the tangy cornichons are from France. $11.50. 2840 W. Armitage Ave., Logan Square

Hoagie at Standing Passengers

The East Coast–inspired version at this coffeehouse packs sliced ham, salami, and capocollo with provolone, tomato, onion, oil, vinegar, and mayo, all of it on crisp, chewy D’Amato’s French bread. The sandwich is constructed “inside out,” meaning the meat and cheese go on the roll first and are wrapped around the toppings, ensuring you get a taste of everything in each bite. $13. 1458 W. Chicago Ave., Noble Square

Smoked Whitefish at Daisies

Chef Joe Frillman transforms Lake Superior catches into a summery sandwich by piling his rich yet refreshing whitefish salad onto Publican Quality multigrain bread and topping it with pickled ramps, trout roe, and frisée. It’s the perfect picnic snack. $13. 2523 N. Milwaukee Ave., Logan Square
