After reading all the great reviews on Yelp, I stopped in for a sandwich in the late afternoon after a hectic day of interviewing at Northwestern. I was intrigued by the promise of unique flavors and Banh mi sandwiches, and Soulwich definitely delivered. The store was empty except for me, and the employee was very helpful and polite. I was...

This is a very casual take out-eat in sandwich/salad place that serves wraps, sandwiches and salads with a thai/burmese twist. Plenty of veggie and also meat options. My sandwich wrap was very tasty with big handfuls of fresh cilantro and shredded carrots, a little pork and eggplant. It was delicious. I want to give this restaurant 3 1/2 stars because... More

I ordered a Sesame Chili Tuna sandwich. It was really so delicious and fulfilling. The Burmese chips are yummy. The place itself is small but the service is fast and very good.

By the time we stepped into the establishment and until we got our food and left, the attendant was pleasant and very helpful. She asked if we had ever been to Soulwich and made helpful suggestions on sandwich types. Try the housemade chips. They are awesome. I think I got it with the spicier seasoning on the chips.. not sure... More

If you are tired of the run of the mill Panera/Subway/Potbelly etc... Sandwich joints you really need to tantalize your taste buds and head to downtown Evanston and give Soulwich a try. Soulwich offers 8 core sandwiches and many of these can be customized by a choice of meat or veggie. I had the Indonesian Ginger BBQ steak which was... More

We heard good things about the sandwiches in this place. We took two sandwiches -- the vegeterian option (with seitan). Both were disappointing -- basically bread with (a lot of) seiten, a few pieces of cucumber and a bit of salty sauce to give it asian flavor. We also had the salad which had good ingredients but the dressing was... More

We got take out from this place while our teen boys were at a northwestern admissions session.  Got four sandwiches which they nicely cut into fourths so we could all try each kind.  Don't get the wasabi chips, they are quite bitter.  The burmese chips are excellently spiced and plain chips were nice and crispy.  The ginger chicken was the...

Went here on our last day in Evanston for lunch before heading to the airport, I was blown away by the amazing taste of our food. My husband and I ordered two different sandwiches and both were just excellent, fresh ingredients and bursting with flavour. I got the Indonesian Ginger BBQ with coleslaw on the side and my husband had... More

I usually am able to grab lunch at work. When Soulwich was building, I had a lot of curiosity. After they opened, I thought I would try it. I loved it! It's quite unique, all the sandwiches I've had I liked. They make their own chips, and I like the seasoning, but be warned, the Burmeese is hot - but... More
