Not a new place but I haven't seen any posts about this place.I love this place,I love people working here,especially the sandwhich chef who is always making a sandwhich cubano with his passion & pride.He only charges $2.50!for a sandwhich.This place literally a small sandwhich joint.There is a only counter,no stools,no tables.The chef is standing behind the incredibly clean counter where he makes sandwhiches.You can make a sushi on this counter,so clean!I've tried many cuban sandwhich places in NYC,and this place makes the most tightly heat pressed cuban sandwhich,as far as I know.The sandwhiches here are pressed very hard,so the sandwhich looks like a pice of wooden board,so flat.As a result,breads and fillings are perfectly married. Every part of sandwhich evenly warm,and you feel that eating a sandwhich,not breads and meats.I'm not sure that this is the best cuban sandwhich in NYC,but It's better than the most other places,I think. This place always gives me a warm feelling even though I'm not Cuban.No matter where you're from,who you are,good foods always make people happy.
