The Venezuelan sandwich geeks at Williamsburg’s The Sandwich Shop have rescued an American Latin classic and made it even more mouth-watering delicious. For lunch, you can now try their popular special “Half a Cuban with a Cup of Daily Soup” for $8.75. El Cubano is pressed on soft bread with slow-cooked leg of pork (pernil), smoked Virginia ham, Emmenthal cheese, sweet pickles and mustard.
If you’re a vegetarian, don’t sweat it. The Sandwich Shop has plenty of veggie options too including The Korean (spicy kimchee, cheddar cheese, sriracha mayo and banana peppers pressed on ciabatta roll) and The Veggie (oven-roasted tomatoes, roasted red peppers, roasted eggplants, caramelized onions, fresh basil, extra virgin olive oil and fresh mozzarella cheese pressed on ciabatta bread).
