Which Wich? Superior Sandwiches has been on my to-do list for a few years now. There are a few locations in San Diego, but the only one I knew of was the one in Hillcrest, so I was always too lazy to deal with the parking.
Recently, I noticed that they opened one in near the UTC Mall, in a plaza with plenty of parking lot. So Mr. K and I went to check it out.
Once inside, there are a line of bags, divided into various categories. For each category, there are several specialty sandwiches. For example, if you choose the “chicken” option, there is chicken, pesto chicken, teriyaki chicken, buffalo chicken and chicken cordon bleu. Then there are a ton of customization options. You choose your bag and then there are red markers provided for you to check off what you want: types of cheese, toasted or not toasted bread, veggies, dressings, type of mustard, mayonnaise, etc. I always get really excited when there are a lot of options, but it’s also overwhelming. We spent quite a while trying to figure out what we wanted.
It’s not always a good thing to have so many options. I always seem to end up putting way too many things on my sandwich that don’t necessarily go together.
Pastrami, Toasted Wheat, Swiss Cheese, Bell Peppers, Dijon Mustard, Mayonnaise, Tomatoes, Pickles, Cucumbers, Spinach, Pepper
This was Mr. K’s choice. I liked the perfectly toasted bread. Unfortunately the pastrami was really really salty. I know pastrami is on the salty sideand I still usually love it. But the version at Which Wich was ridiculously salty.
According to the store, Buffalo Chicken is a fan favorite, so I thought I’d try it out. Unfortunately, the buffalo sauce made the sandwich too moist and soggy. This was one messy sandwich and I wish I had gotten it without the buffalo sauce.
I enjoyed the concept of this restaurant and all the different customization options. Taste-wise, the sandwiches didn’t really impress me. Perhaps I need to work on my sandwich building skills. You also can place your order online if you don’t want to waste too much time in store choosing your sandwich.
