We all know that after a long day playing in the sand and surf that you build up quite an appetite. In Miami, one thing you should never be is hungry. There are hundreds of great restaurants catering to all your flavor cravings from traditional to contemporary. One of the best ways to feed that growling stomach is by indulging in one of the best types of sandwich that you can get in Miami, the Cuban sandwich. Come with us as we take a closer look at 3 of Miami’s best.
El Palacio De Los Jugos is one of the landmark Cuban restaurants in Miami. It is located on the corner of Red and Flagler. Their Cuban sandwich is heaping with the classic combination of ham, roasted pork, Swiss cheese, and mustard and plancha-pressed. Besides this delicious sandwich, this place is also known for their fresh pressed juice. Their “juicer” wields a machete to cut the coconuts. It is the perfect accompaniment to wash down the sandwich.
Bread and Butter is led by Chef Alberto Cabrera. He has a more forward approach to food and has slightly evolved the traditional Cuban into the Cuban Reuben. Here you will find Cuban rye piled high with roast pork, pastrami, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and a truffle Thousand Island dressing. If you love a great Cuban sandwich, this place is sure to satisfy your deepest of hungers.
Last on our journey is the restaurant called Versailles. If you ask the locals, Versailles is the place to go to for the classic Cuban sandwich. It is the quintessential Cuban Miami experience. Located in Little Havana you are sure to be delighted by not only your sandwich, but also the perfect Cuban coffee and the chatter of locals. You’ll almost feel like you might be a little further south than the panhandle of the US.
If you’ve never had the opportunity to try a Cuban sandwich in your neck of the woods, this is the perfect place to make your first foray in experiencing them. They are all a play on the classic and wonderful homages to the traditional. Be sure to tantalize your taste buds and explore all aspects of the city that make it unique, you will be glad you did.
