La Sandwicherie was started in 1988 to bring simple sandwiches at a good price point to Miami Beach. Since then they have expanded to include several Florida cities. The sandwiches are on crisp white or wheat baguettes or soft croissants and all have the signature dressing vinaigrette on the side. All include veggie toppings of lettuce, tomatoes, green peppers, hot peppers, black olives, red onions, cucumbers, and Cornichons (French pickle). They also offer salads and a variety of fruit drinks, but no alcoholic beverages. There is no interior; it’s simply a counter with a few stools and a space designated for ordering. You can customize your French inspired sandwich in any way you’d like. The counter workers take your order and make your sandwich and music is in the background. They are super friendly and helpful. The sandwiches are wonderful and on great bread.
The Terminator Sandwich contained ham, turkey, Genoa salami and Provolone along with all the veggie toppings on a white French baguette. It was a generous sandwich and the ingredients blended well. The tomatoes were nicely red and flavorful and all the other veggies were fresh not browned. The secret sauce binds all the ingredients into a lovely meld of crunch and flavor. The bread is the star though.
The Italian had ham, Genoa salami, Prosciutto and Provolone along with all the veggie toppings. It came cut in two pieces. I loved the hot peppers and if I visited again I’d ask for more of them and less olives – they seemed to enhance the flavor better to me. Once you get it sauced and have all the veggies, I can’t say I tasted a huge difference in the 2 sandwiches but both were fresh and good. It felt healthy to eat it. It was a perfect quick lunch straight off the plane to ready us for exploring all the Art Deco buildings around it.
