After a few solo visits to Sanguich de Miami, Marcela finally made it. This isn’t her first time eating one of their sandos, but it is the first time she’s eaten one at the actual shop.

Marcela orders the Pan con Bistec. Me, I order the Pan con Lechon. She wants to go half-sies, which is an excellent idea. We get the party started right with chicharrones and plantain fries.

The chicharrones have a nice crunch, but the plantain fries are really the side you should order. As a lifelong plantain chips fan, these are next-level.

Don’t forget to ask for a dipping sauce, although, they’re might tasty alone.

A sanguich by any other name is just a sandwich…yeah right, this fella right here is the Pan con Bistec, a pan con bistec that leans heavily on being a cheesesteak relative.

Who else is going to serve sliced sous vide steak? No one but Sanguich does it this way, and it works.

The Pan con Lechon from Sanguich De Miami is another game-changer. It features shredded pork, pickled mojo onions, and garlic cilantro aioli on pressed Cuban bread.

Everything was 🔥

There are regular Cuban cafeteria milkshakes on the menu, but the Banana Milkshake was the chef’s kiss for me. I’m not much of a whipped cream kinda guy, but I was so overwhelmed with the shake that I forgot all about it.

Sanguich Sauces

I’ve written about my love for their sandwiches…I mean sanguiches from Sanguich de Miami before. They’ve launched some sauces. I bought all four, but I’m particularly enamored with El Original.

Joe Carollo targets Sanguich

Even during the Gay8 Festival, the poor folks at Sanguich can’t catch a break. You know how it is when someone has it out for you; Joe Carollo should be ashamed of himself.

Miami Commissioner Joe Carollo found himself entangled in a bitter dispute with the property owner of Sanguich’s original location in Little Havana. In a disturbing turn of events, Carollo opted to exact revenge on the famous sandwich shop by leveraging his political influence. Instead of addressing the property issue through legal channels, he chose to wield his power more maliciously.

Regrettably, Sanguich became the target of Commissioner Carollo’s ire as he began using the police department to harass the business incessantly regarding permitting matters. This aggressive and unwarranted action not only created unnecessary stress for the owners but also displayed a misuse of authority for personal vendettas.

The situation painted a troubling picture of the abuse of political power. Commissioner Carollo’s actions seemed to be driven more by personal grievances than a commitment to resolving property disputes through proper channels. Sanguich, a beloved establishment in the community, found itself caught in the crossfire of a political battle that had little to do with its operations.

As the controversy unfolded, many residents and business owners in Little Havana began questioning the ethics and motivations behind Commissioner Carollo’s actions. The community, once supportive of its local representative, now grappled with concerns about the misuse of political power and the impact on the livelihoods of small businesses like Sanguich.
