Supernatural Sea to Sandwich (San Diego)


So we finally went to Supernatural Sandwiches back in January. We heard about it from friends, bloggers, and numerous media outlets. Heck, we even saw it at the Convoy Night Market! But at the time I didn’t connect the dots and realize what I was missing.


We would not be denied too much longer. The Nessie (Local Fish of the day, Silky Shinto Glaze, Buttery Toasted Bun, Tasty Shaman Tartar Sauce, Savory Jinx Relish, Fresh Local Greens) seemed like a good choice to start us out. They were serving halibut and it all came on two pieces of brioche bread. We ended up ordering three sandwiches and this one was the most well behaved. It was simple and toned down, and Anh enjoyed that aspect of it. The fish was cooked just right and flaked off after each chomping bite. One thing I would have liked even more was a wedge of lemon. Aside from that, each sandwich comes with yummy shrimp chips lightly seasoned with chili powder.


My favorite of the day was the Siren. (Sautéed Garlic Mexican White Shrimp, Buttery Toasted Bun, Robust Elemental Aioli, Rustic Hex Tomatoes, Shredded White Cheddar, Fiery Necromancer Sauce, Fresh Local Greens) This sandwich packed a punch and a half. It was spicy, but not over the top for me. The garlic is ever present in each bite, while the juicy shrimp and tomato balanced it all out. With a killer sandwich like this, I can see why they used the Siren for the World Food Championship in Las Vegas. Every bite, beginning to end had a burst a flavor and was a pleasure to eat.


We weren’t sure when we’d be back in the area so we had to grab one more to go. Feast your eyes on “The Almighty King of Umami” aka, the Neptune. (Sautéed Sweet Local Scallops, Crispy Smoked Bacon, Buttery Toasted Bun, Spicy Pyro Aioli, Zesty Enchanted Sauce, Fresh Local Greens.) If I thought the Siren was in your face, the Neptune may have topped it and captivated me with its presentation and bold flavors. We had to drive about twenty five minutes until we could enjoy it so that may have played a factor into our enjoyment of it. However, it was still warm and quite tasty. But I think it was just a tad too much for me. I didn’t enjoy the scallops nearly as much as I did the shrimp. And I preferred the fiery necromancer sauce over the spicy pyro aioli. Still, if you can’t beat em, why not have both? IMG_4991

Supernatural Sandwiches is a little far for us, but there’s really not anything like it in San Diego. So travel to get seafood sandwiches we must. They also sweeten the deal if you sign up for the five stars program. If you don’t know what that is it is basically a free rewards program. You can download an app and  track all your rewards. They give you a small card or you can just tell them your phone number when you checkout. Each menu item has a certain point value associated with it and after you reach a certain amount of points you can redeem those for rewards at each restaurant. Supernatural gives you points for all sorts of things like an Instagram mention or Facebook like. After our first visit we collected 14 points for three sandwiches, a Facebook like, and an Instagram mention. Just to give you an idea of what kinds of rewards they offer, a free sandwich is 30 points while free drink and chips is 12 points. Other restaurants are starting to jump on board and we’ve collected points from places like Tajima and Manila Sunset to name a few. Happy eating!

About Darren

Fooood! I love it if you can't tell already. I love everything about it. The taste, the smell, the look, the feel, the satisfaction, the gratification, and ultimately: the fun! I've been in San Diego for about 10 years now and it amazes me that there are still places to uncover. Traveling, eating, and taking pictures of food has always been a hobby of mine. So naturally Michael and I thought it made sense to share what we found with all of you. I tend to side with the savory but never shy away from a knock out dessert. If you have a place you think we haven't tried let us know! We're always on the lookout...

  1. I went here earlier this year but i wouldn’t go out of my way for it. i’m in the minority here. personally, I’m not a fan of the thick bread. too much edge but once you get past that, some of the flavors are pretty decent. some weren’t. i’m gonna explore around before returning.

    I recently got a five star offer for buy 1 get 1 free… great for those who dig this place. keep an eye out for notifications!

    1. At least you know what you like. I’m not a huge fan of too much bread either, but towards the end I just ate enough to keep my ideal ratio. We had a little extra bread at the end but the flavors of the shrimp and everything else inside trumped all for me. I saw they make other things like soup and hopefully I can try those sometime. Maybe that would be more up your lane.

      We got the five star offer too, thanks for the heads up.
