What is the Cuba Traditional Food – A Cuban Sandwich Of Course!

Sandwiches and me become very close during travels. They are filling, tasty and fun especially when a country is known for them. So it was a great surprise for me that the almost true Cuba Traditional Food was a sandwich – at least for me it was.

There are 2 reasons that made Cuba Traditional Food – Sandwiches – our top choice:

Cuban Sandwiches hit the right spot and even more so the right price.

Cuban Sandwich Home Made

For less than 50 cents, I had a home made sandwich done right in front of me while meandering the cobblestoned streets of Havana Vieja.

But one thing that struck me was how extremely similar they are to Panini’s. Yet, in the ‘western’ world you can easily fork out more than $10 for a mediocre ‘Panini’ and they will most likely taste the same as a Cuban Sandwich!

    They look delicious and remind me of some sandwiches I had when I was a child (in Romania, not Cuba) 🙂

    I bet they were delicious! My husband is from Cuba and he always talks about how wonderful the Cuban Sandwiches were as well as many other famous Cuban dishes that he enjoyed as a child growing up in Cuba. He now makes a great Cuban sandwich himself which we all enjoy! So happy to have found your site and I look forward to following your blog!
