Pressed Sandwiches, Central Sq.

Limster | Jul 15, 2005 02:49 AM

Went to the branch in Central Sq. on Mass Ave, there's another in the Financial District on Oliver Street.

The Cuban's a nice sandwich even though it's not a hardcore traditional Cuban sandwich. There's a soft smoky kick from the chipotle aioli and fairly flavourful pork. A little thin on the cheese, and thus lacking the pork and cheese balance in some of the better cuban sandwiches I've had in the past. Pickles were missing. I liked the cole slaw, but it's poetic license. The bread's a crispy and wispy ciabatta, instead of the slightly denser and pillowy type in most Cubans. Likely to go back to try other sandwiches in future, ingredients were pretty good on the whole.

They also serve gelati. Good flavour on the blueberry, but the texture's not exactly my favourite -- a light and airy, but no sense of smoothness, and occasional bits of ice that might suggest storage issues.
