Sanguich de Miami

Why We Love It: This elegant walk-up window, trimmed in wood, with gold-leaf lettering and a sleek tiled kitchen, began life as a shipping container. Daniel Figueredo, 42, is a former designer and builder of luxury stores who did all the work himself except for the air conditioning. For the menu, Figueredo and his fiancee, Rosa Romero, set out to elevate Cuban classics, in particular the Cuban sandwich. “We make all components except for the cheese,” he says. Figueredo, whose parents came to Florida from Cuba in 1959, wants Sanguich to reflect “what our Cuban culture means to our generation today: fresh ingredients, made to order and served with love and respect.” Check their website or social media before you head there; they've been dealing with city officials about permitting issues since opening in late 2017, resulting in periodic shutdowns.
