The Best Miami Sandwich competition idea came from an idea I had. We would crown a Best Miami Sandwich winner and pit them against Best Sandwich competitors in other towns.
We would host the overall event in a neutral town. It was too big of an undertaking for me to do on my own.
The City of Hialeah almost hosted it in 2016. Ultimately, the Gay8 Festival partnered with me for the event in 2018 and 2019.
Latin House swept the judge’s votes with its Vaca Frita Sandwich filled with a three cheese blend, Roma tomatoes, chipotle aioli, lime-infused onions, and garlic butter on pressed Cuban bread with a side of black bean dip.
CAO Bakery‘s MedioDia Sandwich won over the judges with its guava & cream cheese pastelito with ham and Gouda cheese.
