Despite the proliferation of sandwich shops in our area, it’s still surprisingly hard to find places open after 5 p.m. Here are a few more open after dark.
All Star Sandwich Bar
1245 Cambridge St., Cambridge, 617-868-3065, www.allstarsandwichbar.com.
This Inman Square sandie shop has a nearly cult-like following and serves workaday fare such as a Cubano and tuna melt, but also features some new creations. If you’re adventurous, try the incendiary Atomic Meatloaf Meltdown.
Moody’s Falafel Palace
25 Central Square, Cambridge, 617-864-0827
A postage-stamp of a takeout shop just off the beaten path, Moody’s Falafel has been popular among the late-night crowd for decades. This spot is well known for shawarma wraps — lamb and beef are customer favorites — and vegetarian sandwich options, in addition to traditional Middle Eastern fare.
