A couple of sandwiches for a humid Sunday.
My buddy JasonV asked me if I'd ever been to this sandwich place.....he told me it was "awesome" and showed me a photo of Supernatural. I cracked up and said I'd been a customer since they had a stand at the now defunct San Diego Public Market. And I did tell him that they do make some good sandwiches. A few days later; Deanna told me she had gone to Supernatural Sandwiches after work and loved it. I'd taken her there a few years back. So I got the hint; it had been nearly six months since my last visit.
Needless to say; the place was doing some major business when I arrived. Love the folks who work here; they always have a smile for me.
I went with my usual; the Siren....I realize I need to start ordering other stuff on the menu. But the folks here have this totally down.
From the lightly garlicky-spicy mayo; to the moist and plump shrimp, to go with the buttery-slightly sweet brioche. I'm thinking that it could use a bit more acidity to cut the richness; but that would be splitting hairs.
It's one of my "guilty pleasure" sandwiches.
It's also nice to see a place that's doing so well expanding. With locations now in Santa Ana and Tijuana, and two other locations in PB (they are going to make a killing) and Little Italy opening soon, it's going to be a "SuperNatural Kingdom". Good for them!

Speaking of guilty pleasure sandwiches.....
I went with basically the same thing as on previous visits.
The Yuca Frita; which was disappointing.
This was too dense, dry, almost hard, and not crisp enough for me. It was also still barely lukewarm in the center. The mojo was very nice though. Garicky with nice citrus tones; not sour, but with a nice acidity.
The Medianoche the "midnight sandwich" was very good.
From the nicely pressed, crunchy, yet light bread, to the moist and tasty pulled pork, to the milky cheese, the ham, and yes, the all important pickle, which cuts through all that high-caloric goodness. This place also seems to have sandwich down.
I could only finish half the sandwich. I took half home and the Missus polished it off in no time flat. I guess She liked it......even cold.....midnight or not.
