Calle Ocho is arguably Miami’s top Cuban sandwich destination, and now the area has a new spot added to the mix: Sanguich de Miami, which officially makes its permanent debut this weekend.
Sanguich de Miami made its original debut in South Florida’s culinary scene in 2017 inside a shipping container in Little Havana, but in January of this year it was shut down due to zoning issues yet vowed to reopen — and it did. The new 750-square-foot counter service restaurant boasts it’s own ventanita along with indoor seating for 25. Inspired by Cuba’s early 1900s Spanish architecture, it boasts brass trimmings with floating tables inlaid with brass and quartz, Cuban tiles throughout and the decorative walls adorned with reeded millwork.
The menu stays the same as the original with six sandwiches including the “Cubano,” pan con lechon, pan con croqueta, and el pan con bistec, along with seven “batidos” (aka milkshakes) with flavors like trigo, mamey and banana.
Sanguich de Miami is located at 2057 SW 8th Street and is open Monday to Thursday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., until midnight on Friday and Saturday nights, and until 8 p.m. on Sunday.
