Cuban Sandwich with Yuca Friesand Cilantro Lime Mayo

The best Cuban Sandwich that you can find in the U.S. of A. is where  it originated….in Ybor City, Tampa Florida.The Cuban sandwich was originally called the “mixto” – ham, roast pork, Swiss cheese, mustard – and made for Ybor City cigar workers. Sicilians and immigrants from other parts of Italy joined Spanish and Cuban immigrants in the cigar factories, and Genoa salami was added, transforming the mixto into Cuban sandwich. Take a trip to Ybor City to taste the Cuban sandwiches for yourself! Graze your way down 7th Avenue and try each restaurant’s version of the Cuban sandwich. And trust me, you are gonna LOVE each and every one of them!
