Malibu is the stuff of legends. And if you're not already familiar, allow us to introduce you to Sydney sandwich lore.

The pint-sized Surry Hills hole-in-the-wall sandwich shop has kept its prices low despite inflation, delivering enormous loaded sambos on Foster Street at what feels like 2010 prices.

No sandwich here is over $14, with the majority sitting around the $11 mark. The fan favourite is the chicken schnitzel, which combines a crispy breaded chicken breast with herb mayo and lettuce on soft slabs of fresh bread, for just $12.50.

If you're more of a ham sambo kind of person, Malibu takes this humble sandwich up a notch with the addition of bocconcini, basil and tomatoes, and will require elbow room on approach.

If you'd prefer to go breadless for your lunch, you can also opt for a salad. The standard option throws in a heap of veggies including rocket, tomatoes, beetroot and pumpkin — and can be dialled up with the addition of tuna, salami or chicken schnitzel.

It's a simple little shop, specialising in just a few things — big sandwiches and loaded salads that won't break the budget.
