I got to spend a lunch break with my Daniel and Rosa Figueredo, the owners of Sanguich de Miami - a Cuban Sandwich Shop in Little Havana specializing in gourmet Cuban sandwiches & milkshakes. Serving up authentic, handcrafted Cuban sanguiches! They are also 2022-2023- Michelin Bib Gourmand recipients.
I spoke to Daniel and Rosa about how they started Sanguich and how they went from doing pan con lechon sandwiches at an music festival to owning a location in Little Havana and quitting their very lucrative corporate jobs to make sandwiches.
We spoke about they brine the ham for days, marinate lechon for 24 hours; make the mustard, pickles in house and also their own bread recipe used that they then brush the bread with lard that they render down, before pressing them all together to a crisp.
I spoke to them how Rosa and Daniel balance each other and how they have grown the business and spent over a year researching their recipes and sacrifices made to make Sanguich happen.
We also spoke to Daniel about how they have grown the bedrock of the business and now they are going and growing. We also talk about the importance of Community over Competition.
I loved chatting with them and listening to their inspiring story. Not to mention their food is so good- heck people can order it on GoldBelly.
