Our idea of a good Cuban sandwich usually consists of some good bread, a firm press, high-quality ham, and spicy mustard that packs a kick. Luckily for us, Havana Sandwich Company in El Segundo constantly meets, if not surpasses, our standards, starting off with getting its bread from a local Cuban bakery. But the menu doesn’t stop at just Cubanos. With two dozen sandwiches to choose from, you’ll find all kinds of combinations, like classic reubens, vegetarian options, and various rifts on the usual Cuban sandwich. The Miami Cuban is a personal favorite, and comes with the usual ingredients, plus mayo, mustard, and salami. Adding some cured pork to the already pork-heavy sandwich might sound like overkill, but the extra saltiness from the salami really brings out the flavors in the other cuts. And if you’re not in the mood for pork but want to sample a Cubano anyway, opt for the roast beef version, which tastes great with melted swiss and mustard.
