The Absolute Best Sandwiches in the US
Burrowed in the heart of Little Havana, Sanguich is a 25-seater space with a few appetizers, a handful of sandwiches, batidos, and Cuban coffee. Guava and cream cheese milkshakes, Cuban nachos, and plantain fries with a trio of dipping sauces illuminate how Sanguich’s menu is rooted in tradition but also cleverly pushing the envelope. Stuffed with slices of ham, roasted pork, Swiss cheese, croquettes, pickles, and a brush of mustard on pressed Cuban bread, the croqueta preparada sandwich is a grand slam of flavor. There’s a lot to appreciate about this sandwich, but the real stroke of genius is the choice to masterfully tuck a few croquettes in between all the unctuous meat, briny pickles, and melted cheese. The outer breading of the crispy croquettes lends an extra layer of texture and crunch to the sandwich that’s sure to have you begging for more with every bite.
