Toasted Sandwiches .... and I mean Proper Toasted Sandwiches!

    Is there anywhere (Cafe or otherwise) that know how to make proper toasted sandwiches? - I mean say if I say "Can I have a cheese toasted sandwich please" - I get "do you want white white or brown bread?" (well first of all I am thinking in my head - No, brown bread toasted sandwich is just plain wrong!) - so then white it is "sit down over there I will bring it over" .

    When it finally comes its 2 bits of white bread toasted with a bit of melted cheese in it that collapses as you are eating it leaving all the filling falling out of it!- or melted cheese sticking to the 'greaseproof' paper or paper bag - sorry lads that is not a Toasted Sandwich .

    A Toasted sandwich is what you get when you buy a Sandwich Toaster from TESCO for around 7 quid and you put your 2 bits of buttered bread into the Sandwich Toaster along with the filling and then close the lid and a few minutes later you take the toasted sandwich out of the Sandwich and its 'pinched' all the way round thus encapsulating the filling .. its lovely ... OH God I fancy a toasted sandwich now!

    So anyone know if actually any cafe in Ireland can make a 'proper' toasted sandwich like that? - I mean am I using the wrong terminology maybe? - I have tried so far "Can I have a cheese cheese and tomato sauce toasted sandwich" and I have also tried "can I have a cheese toastie please" both have got me the same results. - is it called something else in Ireland? , is that where I am going wrong?
