My guests on Cuban tours often ask me where they can find the best Cuban sandwich in Havana. There are a few places that serve them but not many. This tasty toasted ham and cheese sandwich originated in Florida where it became very popular among Cuban expatriate workers but it never caught on in Cuba itself.
The sandwich that’s called the “Cubano”
Might best be called “Americano”
It’s loved in Miami,
Tampa and Tamiami
But it’s awfully rare in Havana.
