The pop-up, which celebrates Japanese sandwiches, will take place from January 8 to January 21
Oklahoma City will soon play host again to chef-driven, Japanese sandwich pop-up Sandoitchi, which has sustained a constant buzz over the past two and a half years through its popular and innovative pop-up events highlighting Japanese sandwiches and comfort foods. Founded in 2020 by chef Stevie Nguyen, who was previously with Momofuku Ko, Morimoto and Uchi, Sandoitchi has travelled the country showcasing their approach to the art of the Japanese sandwich. Having already made two successful stops in Oklahoma City during the summers of 2021 and 2022, Sandoitchi will occupy the space of former Neon Coffee Bar for its third time in the city. “Since the very beginning when we first started taking the Sandoitchi concept on the road, OKC has been an important city for us,” said Keith Tran, Operations Manager at Sandoitchi. “With the vibrant and diverse culture here, we are able to test out a lot of ideas before taking them to further cities. We are very excited to return to the dynamic food scene in Oklahoma City.”
Sandoitchi’s pop-up will run from Sunday, January 8 through Saturday, January 21. Weekly pre-orders can be placed on Sunday evenings at www.sandoitchi.menu with daily pick-ups on Tuesday through Saturday (11am to 2pm). Be sure to follow @sando.itchi on Instagram and set your alarms for Sunday, January 8 at 6pm to be the first to get your hands on a sando — they historically sell out in minutes!
Pre-order opens for the first week on Sunday, January 8 at 6pm, and pick-up days for that week will be Tuesday, January 10 through Saturday, January 14 — all from 11am to 2pm. Pre-orders for the second week open on Sunday, January 15 at 6pm and orders will be available for pick-up from 11am to 2pm on Tuesday, January 17 through Saturday, January 21.
Inspired by sando commonly found at Japanese konbini (convenience stores), Sandoitchi is a Dallas-based, chef-driven concept serving gourmet faire, using high-quality, locally-sourced ingredients. Founded in 2020 as an experimental pop-up during the pandemic, the brand gained critical acclaim and cult-status during a series of pop-ups, one-day food trucks, and flash offerings. Driving its culinary direction is Chef Stevie Nguyen (Japanese restaurant pedigree of Uchi, Morimoto and Momofuku Ko) along with business partners Keith Tran, Andy Sirois, and Angel Acosta.
