Working in Miami, I found that like Gary said you can find cuban sandwichs in place you wouldnt usually expect. Leaning on the truck bumper enjoying a warm sandwich and a bottle of cuban soda(when in rome..etc)while watching the local fauna pass.. There’s unfortunatly no place nearby to get a cuban = ( Ybor city is only about 3 hours away so maybe a roadtrip is in order..
"The care and eating of Cubans…"
She was a bit temperamental, prone to fits of anger sometimes, but overall a kind gentle woman. I don’t remember her needing any special care.
KRISTI S. my fellow Tampanian,has defined Exactly what a cuban sandwich is,no,must be. I would add that down here,there are many,tiny places that you wouldn’t think would have any kind of prepared food(many are bodega’s,more grocery stores than anything)but have ‘great’ sandwiches.
BUSHIE…cuban bread does not travel well,you really have to get it ‘fresh baked’. even when we buy it fresh,within 1/2day,it becomes rather chewy,etc
PS,I wouldn’t ask Grudin anything but I would buy him a drink as I made a few bucks(no pun intended)betting against his less-than-spectacular football team.
Thank you so much for the information about the frozen Cuban sandwiches at Jungle Jim’s. We make a trip down there a couple or three times a year and each time I find new and exciting things, so now I know to look for the Cubans.
We have breakfast and lunch occasionally at the Starliner Diner in Hilliard and the gentleman who owns (and cooks for) the diner is Cuban and while all his food is fantastic, I love his Cuban sandwiches most of all.
I was at Jungle Jim’s yesterday. In addition to all the awesome stuff to be found there I found a case dedicated to frozen cuban sandwiches. It amazes me what is there.
If you can get to Spanish Harlem or Washington Heights, go into any grocery or bodega and look for a brand called La Esperanza. It comes in a white wax paper sack, like Italian or French bread, and is delivered very fresh.
Just don’t start with the Bass-O-Matic![:D]
…that it’s always somethin’. (another great character of Gilda’s…RoseAnn Rosannadanna)
It just goes to show ya….
Paul, it really is too bad. Yes, it was ovarian cancer that took her much too early. I enjoyed her work.
Cheesewit: Too bad she had to die of ovarian cancer?. She was great.

Thank you, Paul. Just getting a bit antsy for the holiday weekend to begin, so I thought I’d throw in some humor. I guess it also shows my age. Miss Emily Litella was a Gilda Radner character in the early (and best in my estimation) years of Saturday Night Live.
Cheesewit, Great Humour. [:D][:D][:D][:D]

I think it’s terrible that there’s a topic about caring for and then eating Cubans. I think that any nationality of people should be cared for and not eaten. Oh…you mean cuban sandwiches. Never mind.

There has to be a decent place to get cuban bread in NYC. Does anyone have a suggestion?
