Despite its name, Pan.Com Sandwicheria is a Cuban restaurant - not a website devoted to bread - and puts a new spin on some Cuban favorites. Inside, there’s a wooden bar and giant wall print of Havana streets. It’s a good place to come with friends and share some small plates. Their croquetas are homemade little balls of joy that will make you ask - why don’t all croquetas come in circular form? Sandwiches here are a fresh take on some classics. Try the frita gangster for a juiced-up version of a frita that comes with a bacon onion jam you’ll want to spread on everything. The real star of the show, though, is the tamal en cazuela, a Cuban version of grits. It’s enormous and Pan.Com makes theirs with fresh ground corn, which gives a creamy texture. They also add in pork chunks, aromatic sofrito, and top the tamal with a heaping portion of ropa vieja, runny fried egg, and avocado slices.
