Tips and tricks for making the best sandwiches at home.
Don't be misled by the diminutive "ito" in the name of the Cubanito ($9.95) sandwich from Café Cortadito because it's one big, juicy sandwich. More importantly, it's a traditional Cuban sandwich done right. First, the Cuban roll is fresh and soft with toasty edges that seal in the juices from the super-moist shredded roasted pork. The pork isn't fatty and its flavor is enhanced by the thin layer of not-too-salty baked ham. Then there is an eye-rolling, smile-inducing amount of tangy, melted Swiss cheese. A scattering of pickles and mustard add just enough vinegary zip to make your tongue tingle for the next bite of soft, gooey, porky goodness. The sandwich comes with a side of plantain chips to boot.
