I love everything about SUNdeVICH.
I love that it’s located in an alley (off 9th Street, between N and O Streets) in the Shaw neighborhood. I love that it is a converted garage. I love the attention to detail in every nook of the space. I love the handwritten menu boards. I love that its owners live in the neighborhood. I love its commitment to local ingredients and green practices.
Oh, and I love the sandwiches.
SUNdeVICH offers global-inspired sandwiches with BOLD flavors on a distinctly crusty baguette. So far, my favorite is the Kinsgton — Jamaican jerk chicken, pineapple salsa, greens, slaw, and garlic mayo. The spicy jerk spices are perfectly balanced with the sweet salsa and garlicky mayo. The Saigon is milder but also a flavorful and solid choice. The steak in the Buenos Aires is mouthwatering.
I may have to tote my SLR with me on another visit for higher quality photos to do the sandwiches justice, but for now, the iPhone camera pics offer a preview:
