THE Sandwich – La Sandwicherie in South Beach – Miami, FL

by Julius Mayo Jr | December 11th, 2012 -

Traveling and eating are my favorites things to do in life. I go as far as to plan all my trips & daily itineraries around where I will be eating each day. For me, traveling & food goes hand-in-hand and I’ve really become obsessed with visiting certain restaurants to eat in each and every trip. Probably my most frequently visited place to eat at is La Sandwicherie in Miami’s South Beach. It’s on 14th street between Washington Ave & Collins Ave, an outdoor dining place where you grab a seat & order, then enjoy eating al fresco. It’s a hot spot for both locals and tourists in the know.

I was introduced to La Sandwicherie probably around 2006 or 2007 when my cousin Amanda took me here and we split a sandwich and smoothies. At the time I was eating sushi everyday and when she said let’s go get a sandwich at this French place, I sadly didn’t think anything of it. That really changed after eating here and I’ve been hooked ever since.

This is what I refer to as THE Sandwich. When you go to La Sandwicherie, order this: Saucisson Sec with camembert cheese on a croissant, with everything, including hot peppers, and vinaigrette. Don’t worry about looking at other sandwich options, THIS is the sandwich to get, trust me. If you don’t like a certain veggie, then leave it out. If you like a baguette instead, that’s great too.

THE sandwich comes out wrapped up and when you open it up, this is the view. Layers of fresh quality ingredients including the Saucisson Sec (French Salami) and camembert cheese with all of the vegetables.

Sandwich: Saucisson Sec (French Salami) w/ camembert cheese with everything, including hot peppers on croissant

Toppings:Lettuce, tomatoes, green peppers, hot peppers, black olives, onions, cucumbers, cornichons (French pickles), mayonnaise, Vinaigrette (French dressing) which is made in-house

This is a side view of the sandwich, with all of the ingredients listed above. Of course the sandwich and toppings can vary in appearance depending on who makes it, but this one pictured above was one of the best photos I’ve taken. The sandwich itself is fresh tasting with all of it’s toppings and the Saucisson Sec and camembert cheese are an awesome combination together.

The sandwich comes standard on French bread (pictured above) and it is good this way too. My personal preference is to order it on a croissant, but the French bread is great here and it may be a tad bit easier to share. Either way, you can’t go wrong with the bread you choose here.

Another must is you have to add more of the yellow vinaigrette on the sandwich, ask for the bottle if you are staying to eat. Ask for an extra vinaigrette if you are taking to go. It’s probably the key ingredient that brings it all together and gives this sandwich is signature flavor.

Drizzle the French vinaigrette, which they make in-house, all over your sandwich. I refer to it as “Liquid Gold” and pretty much use it on every bite.

If you become addicted to the French dressing vinaigrette, they also sell it in bottles to take home. The staff at La Sandwicherie are very experienced at making the sandwiches and smoothies. It’s a fun place to eat, people watch, and it is comfortable sitting at this outdoor sandwich style bar all year round.

Some friends say that it’s best after a night of drinking, but I’ve never experienced that. The latest I’ve been here is around midnight for a late dinner. It is busy all times of the day & night, being open from 8am to 5am, and until 6am on weekends. I remember they used to be open 6am until 5am a few years back. I guess they deserve a longer break these days. They also have a new location near downtown in the Brickell neighborhood, different hours so check the times on the website.

La Sandwicherie is probably my first stop every time to South Beach, usually my last stop before I leave, and it is my must stop on every visit in the area. It’s my happy place to eat at and makes South Beach & Miami itself enjoyable every trip down. Every out-of-towner that I have sent there has enjoyed THE Sandwich and usually go back a few times while visiting South Beach. It has been considered a hidden gem by locals, a long time before it was a popular destination. I know I’ve driven in, just for THE Sandwich, any time I travel to South Florida. What can I say, I’m addicted to eating the Saucisson Sec with camembert cheese sandwich. When you get a chance, try out La Sandwicherie and let me know what you think.

    I’m so thrilled you told me about this place when I went to South Beach. Our hotel was literally across the street from it. We could see it from our room!! Ugh, best sandwich, ever. My fiance still talks about it and says how badly he wants to go back. I’m glad you did a review of this so more people can experience THE sandwich!! :)

    I don’t know when I’ll be back in Miami sadly – at first I thought, maybe I can recreate it at home? But that vinaigrette! Who knows how they make it and without that I’m sure it’s not the same. Maybe I will just make a trip down during the holidays, this sandwich seems worth it!

    We discovered this fabulous place by chance last summer and literally ate there every single day the whole week we were in Miami. My husbands favorite is chicken salad on croissant and I loved every one I tried…. I will need to do more study to pick a favorite. That vinaigrette is amazing and the little French pickles…my mouth waters just thinking about them. Don’t miss the chocolate croissants for breakfast!
