La Flor de Broadway
There's more to making a Cuban sandwich than throwing some ham and cheese on a roll, tossing the thing onto the sandwich press, and twiddling your thumbs until it's ready. Harlem's La Flor de Broadway earns its nickname, "El Rey del Sandwich Cubano," by meticulously basting the bun with margarine while the sandwich cooks in the press and generally lavishing attention on the thing as if it were a Thanksgiving turkey. The result is perfectly thin and crispy outside and juicy within. And believe it or not, the simple but similarly fawned over Swiss-cheese sandwich is even better.
Note: Prices vary depending on how you personalize your sandwich, but most start at or under $5.
