A Smash Hit Japanese Sandwich Pop-Up Opens In Houston Tomorrow • Sandoitchi

Sandoitchi’s three-week pop-up starts this Thursday!

Dallas-based sandwich shop Sandoitchi is bringing their fluffy and beloved sandos to the Heights this week. From November 7 to November, the sandwich shop will be available for pre-order and curbside pick-up. [Featured image: @sando.itchi]

Sandoitchi is a project from former Uchi chef, Stevie Nguyen, who also worked at the double-Michelin-starred Momofuku Ko restaurant in New York. The shop first launched as a pop-up in Deep Ellum, Dallas, over the summer to wide acclaim.

His Sandoitchi project is iconic for its milk-based finger sandwiches which have been all the rage in Dallas and of California. Featured sandwiches include The Hot Chicken Truffle Katsu, Strawberry Matcha Cream, and a Miyazaki Wagyu Katsu sandwich with sliced truffles and gold flakes, for good measure.

The pop-up is also known for their neat packaging. At Sandoitchi’s, their crustless, square-shaped sandwiches are encased in unique boxed packaging that is not unlike takeout rice boxes.


Ordering is not so simple. In fact, at this point – a day before it’s set to open – the shop has yet to reveal its location in the Heights. To place an order, one must first submit their email to the Sandoitchi website.

When the shop prepares to open at 6 pm tomorrow, November 5, it will send users a password to login. The shop sells out fast, so make sure your hands are at the ready!
