Last Monday before Mike and I said goodbye to Washington, DC and headed back to Chicago we made a stop at SUNdeVICH for lunch. SUNdeVICH is a teeny tiny little sandwich shop in Shaw and if you don’t know where to look, you might miss it; it’s in a cute little garage down an alleyway between N & O streets – you’ll find a sign that will point you in the right direction.
What SUNdeVICH lacks in square footage it makes up for in some absolutely killer sandwiches. The menu is full of fresh, local ingredients combined to give the sandwiches a unique, international flair. They also have some great sides and breakfast sandwiches served all day!
Because I couldn’t choose just one, Mike and I ordered 3 sandwiches between the two of us and each one was delicious in its own way. We tried the Buenos Aires with steak, sautéed onions, and chimichurri, the Kingston with jerk chicken, pineapple salsa, spicy slaw, greens, and garlic mayo, and the Seoul with bulgogi beef, kimchi, Asian slaw, greens and garlic mayo. Mike’s favorite was the Kingston and I really loved it as well. It has tons of amazing flavor but it also packs some heat; if you can’t handle spicy this definitely would not be the sandwich for you. I think the Seoul was probably my personal favorite, the bulgogi beef was so incredibly flavorful and the kimchi and Asian slaw complemented it perfectly.
Honestly, I think it would be pretty hard to go wrong with any sandwich you pick at SUNdeVICH! I’m so glad we found this hidden gem before we left and I guarantee that when I’m back in D.C. I will be making a return visit!
SUNdeVICH is located at 1314 9th St. NW in Washington D.C.’s Shaw neighborhood.
