Savenor's in Cambridge has a new sandwich counter that Gabatta thinks is worth a visit. Boar's Head meats are available, but a list of specialty sandwiches contain house-roasted meats. Among them is the Havana ($10.99), Savenor's take on a Cubano. "I think it was better than any other Cubano I have had," Gabatta says. "The sandwich traveled well and was still warm without the roll (Iggy's torta) being soggy when I got home."
The Havana contains house-roasted pork shoulder, ham, Swiss cheese, dill pickle, pickled red onion, spicy aioli, and mustard butter. "For purists, it's not a true Cuban sandwich," SLL1065 says. But as hckybg points out, the menu makes no claim to authenticity.
"It was absolutely delicious and [an] unexpected surprise," Gabatta says.
