Your favorite sandwiches in Miami, Miami Beach?

Mine included the pastrami on seedless rye with a schmear of chopped liver at Rascal House and now also includes the Village Voice at The Daily- Italian tuna (no mayo) with white bean and arugula with honey mustard on good hearty multigrain. This sandwich is like an opera in my mouth- yum!

I've had a lovely wrap with avocado and juicy chicken at Pineapple Tea Room on Biscayne.

I would love to find a place that serves carozza- Italian grilled cheese sandwiches.

  1. Chowfather got me hooked on the tuna salad sandwich at epicure.

      Heads up for all "low carbers" I've heard from a very reliable source that the epicure tuna salad has bread in it. That's what gives it sweetness. That being said, if if you don't mind the extra bread it certainly is delicious.

    2. The turkey w/ asian pear, brie, and mango chutney at Books & Books on Lincoln Rd.

      The falafel pita with everything and hots at Pita Plus on Washington.

      Jalepeno Cheeseburger at the Food Love Cafe on the sand of the beach at about 18th-19th st.

      1. Does a semi-home-made creation from leftovers count? We recently had Bar-B-Que Beach do the food for one of the kids' birthdays, and while the ribs, chicken and brisket went like hotcakes, we ended up with a good bit of leftover pulled pork. (1) warm some leftover BBQ sauce in pan; (2) add generous portion of leftover pulled pork; (3) warm through until pork gets all nice and tender again; (4) slap on a split toasted hoagie roll; (5) pile leftover cole slaw on top; (6) enjoy.

        As close as I've gotten to the legendary Johnny V rib meat hoagie.

        I actually think BBQ Beach have something very similar to my creation on the regular menu, the "Carolina Piggie" and "Memphis Piggie" sandwiches.

          This reminds me of one of my favorite sandwiches in Tallahassee: The GoldenQue at Tiny's...pulled pork, coleslaw, a mustard BBQ sauce between two slices of texas toast...Yum.

        2. I thought I'll throw this one in - but I haven't yet tried it. My Cuban friend likes the Cuban sandwich at Sarussi's in Hialeah more than Luis Galindo's Latin American Cafeteria by FIU (which is supposed to have a good reputation) because Sarussi's make their own bread (not sure if all locations make their own breads).

          Meanwhile, my other friend, from India, who is a big sandwich fan (much more than myself), swears by the sandwich place at the Dominion Tower in the Health District / Civic Center. He had been on a hunt for good sandwiches in Miami for years.

          1. Tinta y Cafe has an "Italiano" sandwich with prosciutto, buffalo mozzarella, tomatoes, fresh basil, roasted red peppers on a baguette and grilled in the press that's really wonderful. W wine Bistro has a croque monsieur that is so rich and delcious you might need cardiac valve replacement surgery immediately after eating. And for probably the best bread in town for any sandwiches, Perricone's take out (Tuesday special 2 sandwiches + 2 drinks for $11, cheaper than nasty Subways). I am not a pork eater, but my friends tell me the deconstructed Cuban sandwich at Bin 18 is great, and for a real authentic Cuban sandwich, try El Pub on Calle Ocho,

              I second the deconstructed Cuban at Bin 18. Their French dip is quite good as well.

                I third the deconstructed Cuban at Bin 18. Jaja!

                  Fourth! Also the sandwiches in Gusto Fino, Coral Gables are fantastic
