  1. Good choice! It’s great when you can experience local food and at such a low price.

  2. 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!
