SuperNatural Sandwiches Ends Run In San Diego After 10 Years In Business

August 22, 2022

After a decade bringing sea to sandwich in San Diego, Supernatural Sandwiches has ceased operations. 

Started in 2012 by Tony Nguyen and Anthony Tran, SuperNatural Sandwiches gained its following from its always sold-out weekly farmer's market appearances at Hillcrest's Sunday Market. With a menu centered around creative seafood sandwiches, the company opened its first brick-and-mortar location in San Diego's Miramar in 2014. In 2018, the eatery aggressively expanded and entered Orange County with the opening of a stall within the 4th Street Market food hall in downtown Santa Ana and also launched Supernatural Cocina at Plaza Rio Food Garden in Tijuana. SuperNatural also formerly had a restaurant in Pacific Beach and another at the AV8 Building of luxury apartments at 2155 Kettner Boulevard in Little Italy.

"It's with a heavy heart that we are announcing the permanent closure of Supernatural Sandwiches," read a post to the company's social media channels. "It's been a tremendous challenge since the onset of the pandemic and a continuous struggle with new variants, exploding food costs, rising labor costs and labor shortages. We did everything we could do from running as barebones as possible without compromising quality to exploring different avenues for funding. Throughout the last 2 years and 4 months we exhausted all our resources and without further going into the red, we have decided to close our doors for good."

Supernatural Sandwiches is closed effective immediately. For more information, visit
