Let me start by saying that I am a Latin female who is a foodie. I was visiting Columbia, MO on June 6th, 2008, and i stumbled on a great bakery in downtown Columbia- Uprise Bakery on Hitt Street. Closed on Sundays.
Their Cuban pork sandwich is the BEST American interpretation of a Cuban that I ever had. And i would also say that this sandwich would be ranked among my top 3 favorite all time sammy's! This cuban had roasted pork, ham, fontina cheese, habaneros, onions, and a fabulous aioli on toasted Ciabatta bread. Couple that with a salad... and a DIET pepsi and you are good to go!
I went there for lunch for the 3 days i was in Columbia, MO. Didn't want to have lunch anywhere else because that Cuban sandwich brought me too much happiness- happiness i was not willing to give up! :)
