VANCOUVERITES: The “Sandwich Nazi” Is The Most Fascinating Man In Town (NSFW)

June 7, 2012.

Just…wow. I’ve met some characters in the local food business in my time, but Salam Kahil takes the cake. Before you press play above, be warned: it’s totally NSFW, containing male full frontal nudity (for real), wildly inappropriate stories, non-stop sexual innuendo, hilarity, and random acts of kindness. The film is yet another solid effort from Lewis Bennett, who has taken it upon himself to create 12 movies on Vancouver, its people and its surrounds in 2012. We are proud to present “The Sandwich Nazi”:

The Sandwich Nazi is about Salam Kahil who runs La Charcuterie, a Scandinavian deli in the Port Kells area of Surrey, BC. He is an art collector, a former male escort, an amateur piano player, and a strong supporter of the homeless in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside but his true passion is talking about blowjobs.

Note that this is the fourth film in Lewis’ series, and the best we’ve seen to date.

    Sorry, I prefer to not so be reminded of the shopkeep’s genitals when I order a sandwich. Congratulations on the penis, Salam.

  • Alynne

    Hilarious and incredibly profound – what an awesome interview

  • Scout Magazine

    “Congratulations on the penis, Salam.” = gold.

  • Sarah

    The candle blowjob story was the best ever told.

  • John Bunbary

    He used to have a deli at Kingsway & Boundary. This brought back good memories.

  • Wil

    He kept referring to me and my gf as his “Asian Family”. Go there with an open-mind and a sense of humour and you’ll have great time.

    $7 for a sandwich the size of a new born. DDD should’ve gone there when they filmed in Vancouver.

    Hey Mike, I don’t blame you, but being a regular at his place I can tell you that being reminded of the shopkeepers genitals is the main reason people go there. There’s something liberated about abolishing the stigmas surround the thought of genitalia and food. Your parents always taught you not to say those things, especially not while people are eating. But why should they spoil one’s appetite? It’s not as if he is not food-safe (although part of his shtick is appearing the opposite sometimes). I think for a lot of people it’s pure taboo. I shouldn’t be hearing this while I get my sandwhich. I should be disturbed and grossed out right now by this man, but for some reason, I’m about to eat food prepared with his bare hands. Tough to explain. Does that make sense to anyone?

    Entering this Lunatic’s establishment was a BAD BAD BAD Decision. I work up the road from this place, have for years, and have never been in, so thought I would give it a shot today….I REGRET this decision entirely!!!!! Upon walking in, the man behind the counter took one look at me & said the following, “I DON’T Care how pretty you are or what you are selling, get the Hell out of my store….” I was floored…completely dumbfounded…I thought for a moment that he was joking as I simply could not fathom being spoken to like this, and for NO REASON WHATSOEVER!!!! I asked him if he was kidding, to which he once again responded, “You are Not Getting Anything in my Store!!! Get the Hell Out!!!!”…..I was mortified..there were several other people in the store, all whom looked shocked & uncomfortable…I’ve never ever in my life been spoken to this way and plan on sharing this experience with everyone in this Community!!!!!!!!!!!

    @Jasmine

    “I’ve never ever in my life been spoken to this way…”

    You’re pretty, you get everything you want and how dare a man like him speak to you in such a fashion, am I right? That’s probably exactly why he did it. In all honesty, everyone in the place probably laughed once you left. I hope you do tell “everyone in this community” about this. It will simply bring him more business.

    @Jasmine
    Jasmine is a liar. She did not tell the whole story.
    she came into the deli and she was using her cell and I nicely ask her to shut it off and she ignored me and I told her that. I am serious no sandwich for you unless you shut it off and she was arguing why but why and why and why and she kept on ignoring me so I asked her to leave this way:
    “never mind how pretty you are but you still have to leave and no sandwich for you”
    people like Jasmine, I don’t need them in my deli.

    @Salam Kahil
    Sir, allow me to say you are fucking diamonds :)

    I go to a restaurant to get good food and good service. This guy is unpleasant (to put it politely), and the fact that he has a bag containing a candle that used to be in his ass prominently displayed where food is made, is absolutely stomach-turning.

    He says he doesn’t believe in prayer, he believes in acts. Well, what is his “act” saying about him? So he gives to charity, so what, lots of people do that, and they do it with a good attitude and a smile. This guy is using his charity work as an excuse to be an asshole, and it’s just as disgusting as his shitty candle.

  • Salam Kahil

    @ ANDY
    AT LEAST I GOT SOME REACTIONS FROM YOU
    CHEERS

  • Salam Kahil

    @andy
    I don’t expect every one to like me and find me pleasant. so the next time you go anywhere read the sign first like one I have at my door. My sign says it all. but you still came in.
    I am sure I was not nice to you. and i found you very unpleasant or very unhappy so I was harder on you and to rude to you.
    did you eat a sandwich anyway?
    how was it?
    have a good day

  • Andy

    Never have been to your place, Mr. Kahil, never will go. Best of luck to you.

  • Salam Kahil

    @ Andy
    Good. don’t.
    I am sure you never gave a penny to any charity.
    people like you don’t like a person like me.
    By the way I was on Classic Rock with bro Jake this morning and we talked on the air about my Penis and how big it is and we had a great time.

  • Lance

    Went there for the first time today. Best sandwich I have ever had. I found Mr. Kahil to be hilarious. I especially liked it when he told the kid behind us to put his cell phone away. I will definitly be back.

  • Salam Kahil

    @Lance
    love you Lance Full time
    cheers

  • Rob Grant

    Man this guy is an urban legend! Good for him for attacking our “western” sentiments like reserved sexuality, controversial philosophy, and of course cell phones. I’ve never been to this location while opened, I went one time and it was closed but I think ill go tomorrow! I’d even like to help out with this whole charity thing if need be because I think that’s wonderful. Again we should consider a persons acts as a representation of their whole! So what if you have an obscure sexuality? It’s not in violation of any ones rights or freedoms – it’s his choice and so too is giving back to his community. Ill a huge fan of this guy and I’ve never even bought a sandwich but watching this video definitely makes me want to go! Keep doing what you are doing Salam!!!!! The world needs people like you

  • somalipirate

    LOL this guy makes good sandwiches but is a fucking idiot, I give to charity I also believe in human rights something you know nothing about.

    Someone should record your ass and then send it human rights tribunal then you will know what Canada is about.
