Sloco Sandwich Shop

Welcome to my ‘hood, Sloco!

I’m not a big sandwich fan, generally. To me, all that bread=impending food coma and afternoon nap. But I like how you roll, Sloco. Here’s why:

Statement of purpose is succinct. Speed is appreciated.

NYC-like in style, modernity, & efficiency

Restaurant has a founding document! (Next up: a constitution)

Greens cultivated right on counter

Playful, self-deprecating signage

Somebody seriously loves agave soda and delightful colored boxes.

Nice packaging & fast service, all 2 blocks from my porch

This new sandwich shop just opened in a cool little spot previously occupied by 2 successive sandwich joints that did not survive. There’s a danger of this slim space becoming cursed real estate.

Hopefully, Sloco will figure out a formula that works. Chef Jeremy Barlow and his creative team certainly have their food philosophy down cold: local, fresh, simple, fast, affordable. All that remains is this: do people like the sandwiches? I can’t judge, because I do not, as a rule, prefer the sandwich as a food delivery system.

But I’m rooting for you, Sloco. I like your style.

  1. You should try it anyway. The bread isn’t heavy and the sandwiches are packed with all the other good stuff you really want. Jeremy has a unique take on everything he does and his food is AMAZING! And I’m not just saying that because he is a friend.

    • Thanks so much for the review, Cara! I liked the shaved Seitan sandwich—interesting and unique, and the chicken salad on toasted wheat bread was definitely a high-quality sandwich. I’m usually right up there with an opinion on all things edible, but since I’m not a sandwich lover, I thought I’d keep quiet and let others chime in. Thanks for doing so!
