$7 at Hubbell & Hudson

Where: Hubbell & Hudson Sandwich Counter, 24 Waterway Avenue, The Woodlands, 281-203-5600

What $7 will get you: Some of the best sandwiches in the greater Houston area. The Italian grinder, piled high with ham, salami and roasted red peppers, was $7. Most of the sandwiches at the made-to-order sandwich station are $6 or $7. The Cuban, made authentically in a sandwich press, is a little higher at $8. There are all kinds of exotic salads for sale by the pound in the prepared foods case if you're looking for a side dish. You can eat your sandwich at the tables upstairs overlooking the market or outside on the sidewalk. (And if you want to have an actual sit-down meal, there's also a fancy bistro with a bar.)

Recommended? If you find yourself in the Woodlands, absolutely.

Bonus points: Hubbell & Hudson is one of the coolest food stores in the country. Check out the deli, pasta selection and seafood. Don't miss the olive oil bar, where you'll find 30 or 40 varieties of expensive olive oil -- six of the fancy olive oils are put out for you to sample everyday. There were also mustard and chocolate samples the last time we stopped by.
