Popular Japanese Sando Chain To Open Pop-Up In NOLA For Two Weeks Only

The popular Japanese convenience store staple that’s taken social media by storm is coming to New Orleans

A hugely popular pop up from Dallas, Texas will be visiting New Orleans from February 28. Sandoitchi, which has popped up in Houston and Los Angeles, will be nestled in the French Quarter for two weeks.

The Japanese sando is made on thick, fluffy milk bread, and Sandoitchi (Japanese for sandwich) serves them with a variety of fillings. They’ve become extremely popular with Instagram influencers for their neat aesthetic and unique fillings, such as fruit and cream.

Of course you can also get a savory option, such as pork katsu, hot chicken katsu, or egg salad. Each sando costs $9 to $12.

Led by Texas chef Stevie Nguyen, he and his partners planned to open a restaurant in Dallas prior to the pandemic. Due to the ongoing restrictions, they have since switched to a traveling pop-up model. They typically sell out within minutes of opening up ordering, so make sure you snatch yours up NOLA.


The pop-up requires preorders, and the system is very specific: Sandoitchi’s website accepts orders from 6 p.m. CST on Sunday, February 28. Pickup will be scheduled at checkout and the French Quarter location will be revealed. You’ll only be able to pickup on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, or Saturday. This process then repeats itself for the second week.

Make sure you check out Sandoitchi, in New Orleans for two weeks from Feb, 28.
