The Belly Up Sandwich Shop to Open in April

Partners Jon Swire and Adrian Pujol plan to have The Belly Up Sandwich Shop open at 1146 Abbott Kinney by the end of April. Paul Mojica (Taste on Melrose) will be the Chef and General Manager.

As of now the price point is expected to be around 8.95 or less per sandwich, with “locals” pricing / packages. The sandwich shop will also feature one of the first “Coke Freestyle” machines in West LA., dispensing 100+ brands of sodas.

Belly Up BBQ Abbot Kinney

While the menu is not yet set, check out some of the ideas that are being tested out!

The Belly Up – Our signature sandwich. Slow smoked pork Belly topped with our homemade BBQ sauce and coleslaw on a perfectly warmed brioche roll.

The Smoky Chop – Brisket smoked for over 12 hours in our in-house smoker then chopped to perfection. Topped with our homemade BBQ sauce and signature Deep Fried Pickles on a fresh baked brioche roll.

Mom’s Chorizo Joe – Mom’s secret recipe – Chorizo with potatoes, onions and green peppers. Topped with a Fried Egg on a warm brioche roll.

The Veggie Joe
– For veggie lovers. Veggie Sloppy Joes made with pepper, onions and homemade tomato sauce. Topped with Deep Fried Pickles on a fresh baked brioche roll.

Cheesy Chicken Parm – Lightly pounded free range chicken breaded and golden fried to perfection. Topped with homemade tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese on fresh baked grinder roll.

PBLT – Our take on a classic. Thickly sliced Pork Belly, lettuce, tomato and mayo on toasted sourdough.

Meatball Parm – Our Pork & Beef meatballs smoked to perfection then thinly sliced. Served with our homemade marinara, onions and peppers on a fresh baked grinder roll. All topped with perfectly melted cheese.

Smoky Chop Cheese –. Our classic chopped brisket combined with gooey melted cheese and pressed to perfection. Served on sourdough bread.

The Melt – grilled cheese pressed to perfection and served on fresh baked sourdough bread.

Chopped Brisket Tater Tot Poutine
– Like chili cheese fries only better. Tater Tots covered with either Sloppy Joes or Brisket and finished with homemade cheese gravy.
