Nomination for Best Cuban Sandwich - Gustazo Belmont

Had one yesterday. Have to nominate this for best Cubano in Boston.

While I love the one at Chez Henri, it really is too meaty (oxymoron I know).

For starters the roast pork was clearly house made and super flavorful.

A proper cubano should honestly not be PILED with meat, that is just not correct.

It is all about balance between the pork, the ham, the cheese, the bread, the pickles.

Seriously, this was a PERFECT cubano. They also knocked the price down to $9.99 at lunch which is a bit more palatable. It comes with a nice bag of house made thin crispy plantain chips which were perfectly executed as well. I prefer the beefier chewy tostones, but these were spot on.

The resto itself is really a gorgeous little gem of a place and the staff is very earnest and tries very hard to please.

Next up I have to try their ropa vieja and the garbanzos and chorizo, two of my all time favorite dishes.
