J28 sandwich bar
This fast casual spot right on Young Circle makes the best Peruvian sandwiches in all South Florida. Each one comes on a housemade crusty roll that tastes just like what you’d get at a sanguchería in Lima. Their pan con chicharrón, a traditional breakfast sandwich available all day, is a must-order. It features crispy slices of deep-fried pork, fried sweet potatoes, and a tangy sarsa criolla. If you’re about that spicy life, definitely order it slathered with their fiery homemade rocoto sauce. Their lomo saltado sandwich is also delicious, and they even pack everything separately if you’re doing takeout so nothing gets soggy, not even the fries. Each order comes with a tiny cup of creamy, mildly spicy papitas a la huancaína. They also make some of South Florida’s best empanadas from scratch (yes, even the dough). If J28 were in Miami, they’d definitely make it on our guide to the best Peruvian restaurants.
