Restaurants & Bars New York State (exc. NYC) Cuban Sub/Sandwich

Cuban sandwich, Pelham Manor!

I feel I've done adquate "research" to report on this fine example of the Cuban sandwich (I've had 3!).
Bakery at Four Corners (4668 Boston Post Rd) has a lunch counter, where sandwiches are made to order. The soups can be good too. One day I turned up hungry and there was nothing special at home, so I wandered in and spotted "Cuban sandwich". It's done right. It comes out of the press hot and crisp, with just a little garlicy flavor. Inside the bread is ham, sliced pork, Swiss cheese, and sliced pickle. The pork has just the right amount of fat on the edges, but they 'd trim it off, if you asked. They put mayo on it, but I'm accustomed to mustard. If you are too, ask for mustard when you order. It costs $7, but for me it's two servings, so a real bargain.

Four Corners is anchored by a CVS, if you need a landmark.

Cheers, Pat
