Palo Alto gets new sandwich shop

Uploaded: May 29, 2019
The owners of a local Mexican restaurant have opened a second eatery in Palo Alto focused on sandwiches.

Juan Zamora and Francisco Cupa opened The Sandwich Bug last week at 3864 El Camino Real, the former Ace of Sandwiches space. They also own La Casita Chilanga in Redwood City, which serves tortas and other Mexican food.

There are no tortas at the Sandwich Bug, however. The menu features turkey, roast beef, ham, pastrami and other classic sandwiches made on bread they bake themselves. Customers can also build their own sandwiches.

The name of the shop is inspired by 1968 film "The Love Bug." Sandwiches are appropriately named after car parts and the ordering counter is made from half of a cream-colored Volkswagen bug replica of the movie’s much-beloved car, Herbie.

What is it worth to you?

I had a nice smoothie there and the owners are lovely. The kind of place we want in Palo Alto (thought their Mexican spot in RC sounds delicious - maybe they will bring some mexican items on to the menu :)
