We had been hearing lots of good things about a sandwich place in Itaewon, Rye Post, so this past weekend we decided to finally check it out. The restaurant is on the main drag of Itaewon, with an open, light main room and plenty of tables.

Rye Post bakes all its bread fresh each day, has good craft beers on tap, and has put together a menu of sandwiches inspired by many different parts of the globe. We both settled on the Philly Cheesesteak, but in the future I’m looking forward to trying the Korean Cheesesteak, the Vietnamese Banh Mi, the Jerk Chicken, the Cuban, and the Kimchi Reuben, to name a few!

You can order fries on the side or make your meal a combo with fries and a soda. We got a basket of thin fries, though the waffle fries looked good, too. My husband ordered a Belgian Wit beer, and I had hot tea. Rye Post serves salads and soups, but I didn’t see anyone in the restaurant with anything other than a sandwich and fries.

The food came out fairly quickly, the fries first and the sandwiches a few minutes after. The fries were excellent, crispy and hot, and the sandwiches rivaled our favorite cheesesteak restaurant near Ft. Eustis, Virginia. The bread matters so much on a good sandwich, and Rye Post gets an A+ for theirs, with a crisp outside and soft yet not too chewy interior.

The sandwiches were served with 2 condiments on the side – jalapeños and a killer spicy red chili sauce that lit my mouth on fire but paired perfectly with the cheesesteak.

I can tell we’ll be back to Rye Post often to make our way through all the different sandwich options!
