Tell someone you’re visiting Miami Beach and they’ll say you’ll have to eat a Cuban sandwich. Ask them where at and they’ll usually recommend one of two places: David’s Café or Puerto Sagua.
To settle the debate once and for all, we asked Spike Mendelsohn, chef of Good Stuff Eatery in Washington D.C. to join us in a sandwich versus sandwich taste test. What does a Capitol resident know about Cuban sandwiches?
“I grew up in a Spanish restaurant in Saint Petersburg, Florida where there happened to be a lot of Cuban people. We had a Cuban sandwich on the menu that was raved about,” Mendelsohn said. When the craving strikes, he still whips them up, constructing the crisp, savory sandwich with slow-roasted marinated pork, provolone cheese, and baked ham (the recipe below).
Could the highly touted David’s or Puerto Sagua compare? We provided the mission. Mendelsohn provided the miniature Cadillac.
