Ten Best Cuban Sandwiches in Broward and Palm Beach
6. It's A Cubano B
If it doesn't sound familiar, that's because it isn't. This Delray Beach-based food truck just hit the streets, a family-run affair. South Florida native Rob Menendez and his father, Bob, are the men behind the concept. Menendez, formerly with Boca Raton's Pinon Grill and Sybarite Pig, is now running his own kitchen offering a modern take on his family's Cuban-inspired cuisine. The Cuban sandwich is a specialty, buttered Cuban bread pressed with a traditional plancha and stuffed with a 24-hour slow-roasted pork, thick-cut ham, and Swiss cheese. The finishing touch: homemade pickles. Look for them during lunch on the streets from Boynton Beach to Boca Raton.

At Havana Hideout in Lake Worth, you can get what Guy got on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives and order the Cuban sandwich. The restaurant may prepare most of its fare from its food truck kitchen, but the Cuban sandwich doesn't taste like it. The pork butt is prepped offsite, smothered in garlic and salt, then roasted for up to six hours until moist and tender. The Cuban bread comes straight from Tampa's Cuban bakery, La Segunda. It's fitted with a slathering of yellow mustard, Serrano ham, pickles, and provolone cheese, then slathered in butter and pressed to a deep-brown crisp. The secret ingredient here: a touch of garlic salt.
