Did you know that today was National Cuban Sandwich Day?
Today I was to attend a team celebration for the release of a new software version and they had sent out a menu ahead of time so we could place our order so the food would be ready when we arrived at the restaurant. I told my students that I was ordering a Cuban sandwich and one of the students had heard on the radio that today was the National Cuban Sandwich Day. So, just by chance I celebrated the day properly.
I have had Cuban sandwiches before during trips to Miami, but they were slightly different than this one. I think that this restaurant version has been made to look a bit nicer as the ones I have had in the past were more of a simple pressed sandwich. However the same flavors were there. I think also the ingredients were a bit more gourmet.
This also brought back some memories of my last trip to Miami and I may need to see if I took a picture of a Cubano there.
Happy National Cuban Sandwich Day!
