Best Cuban Sandwich

La Taza de Cafe

Any midnight snacker will tell you that the act of creating a sandwich is a complex discipline requiring an innate sense of balance and a willingness to push the envelope. The fried oyster po' boy and the ahi/wasabi BLT are two noteworthy successes in this area. Another is the Cuban sandwich, which like every great sandwich offers a lot of satisfaction in a relatively small package. La Taza's version is outstanding. Creamy, hearty, tender and spicy all at once, it combines peppery pulled pork with slivers of smoked ham, pungent Gruyére, and spiky mustard inside a soft, pillowy roll that serves to cushion the dynamic flavors. Result: wonderfulness. This handheld yet substantial meal is served during Sunday brunch, a festive affair best enjoyed out on the restaurant's back patio among the encompassingly Caribbean wicker, palm trees, and trellised bougainvillea. (You might want to order a pitcher of house sangria.)
