Oh, that looks good.

I would eat just the meat. Just meat. No other distractions. Maybe mustard. Mustard is not a distraction, but an accompaniment to gently enhance the flavors of the meat and liven up the tastebuds.

And Pedro gets none!

After dinner, a fyne Cuban cigar. You can get Cuban cigars at:

The mustard is worth making. In fact, I always skip to the "leftover" sandwich part. My co-workers beg me to make this meal because I bring them in some after I make it... and only because I make so much of it at one time.  :)

You have to cut the numbers to really make it Habana style.
Conveniently located near Vincennes Indiana.

You've got to have the mustard with a Cuban sandwich. The sandwich presses are getting easier to find outside of Fla. and Greater NYC, too.

When it comes to the style in Florida I always preferred the way they make it in the Tampa/St. Pete region than Miami. You can cut up a long loaf of crusty French style bread to make the sandwiches if you can't get the Cuban style stuff.

How do I say this, if you're a Cuban cigar fan, there are plenty of offshore sellers who will eagerly ship to the States and guarantee delivery. If Customs gets your cigars they'll reship at no cost to you until your package arrives. Personally I think there have generally been better cigars being made in Nicaragua and Honduras than in Cuba since the middle of the last decade. A much more consistent product, too. Construction on handmade Cuban stogies has gone to Hell over the years.

Found a couple photos that I sent to my buddies to make them drool. You also need the pickles and "double pig" (cuban pork and ham) in your sammich.

Yup. Even Al would eat one. He'd likely stuff himself and claim the gas from the frijoles negras on the side were the onset of "brain bubbles".

It's time to make this again this weekend. If you haven't tried it, please do. It is really worth it... and it goes good with beer. :)

Up to this point, my favorite place to have Cuban food was served on the street in front of Fenway by Boston's favorite son from Habana, every time I visited he was there (from Best Food around Fenway.  Editor's note: Yawkey Way was renamed):

The Cuban Sandwich
El Tiante 
Yawkey Way
Before the game, Yawkey Way is the place to be. Entry is restricted to ticket holders, but the legendary outdoor meeting place offers some of the best Fenway food you can find in one place. El Tiante is a particular fan favorite, owned by Cuban Red Sox pitching great Luis Tiant, serving up excellent Cuban sandwiches. As a bonus, sometimes he’s even there to watch you eat them and sign some autographs.


I rate the food at EL Tiante's - nueve-ocho-nueve-seis-cinco-cuatro

I tried like Hell to get Luis' high kick down as a kid, but mostly fell off the the higher mounds of that time in the follow through.

The cannonball arms those long guys had in that time combined with the high mound meant low ERA's and more finished games by starting pitchers. The lowering of the mound ended the era of ironmen pitchers and led to longer games.

You are exactly right, Pigmeat.  The best closers in those days were your starters.
