Best Cuban Sandwich – Sandwich City Spanish Harlem

In New York, there’s plenty of places to get great Cuban Sandwiches. There’s this hole in the wall authentic Cuban restaurant called Cibao on Clinton St in the Lower East Side that my friend Tizoc introduced to me. For me that was the best place to get Cuban Sandwiches but recently I discovered a place up in Spanish Harlem that I feel has contender qualities. Although it is kind of a hike to go up to Spanish Harlem, Sandwich City is located no more than 30 feet away from the 110th Street #6 line subway stop so you really can’t complain.
Yes, they’re called Sandwich City for a reason – they carry just about all kinds of sandwiches besides Cuban Sandwiches as well as some great Latin food favorites like Fried Plantains, Pollo y Arroz, Black Beans, etc.
Cuban Sandwiches are basically made of roasted Ham and Pork (carnitas) with some pickles, mayo, onions and cheese pressed into a hero bun.
At Sandwich City they also provide a sesame toasted roll which in my opinion makes the difference for a great Cuban Sandwich:
