Most Floridians would agree that the most famous sandwich in southern Florida is the Cuban. Originating in early Cuban immigrant communities in Florida, particularly in the cigar-producing cities of Tampa and Key West, the Cuban Sandwich is also known as a Cubano. Cuba brought a variation of the classic sandwich to Florida in the early 1900s where it remains a signature dish in some of the most popular Cuban restaurants.
A Cuban Sandwich is a combination of roast pork, ham, swiss cheese and pickles. Press it all between thick Cuban bread. Once you bite into a warm, crispy Cuban sandwich, you are sure to be hooked for life.
