This Dominican spot on the corner of Clinton and Rivington has been open in the neighborhood for over 40 years, and is one of our go-to spots when we’re looking for a sandwich that’s under $7. Their Cubano comes on a hard, crusty roll that holds all of the shredded pork shoulder, ham, cheese, and pickles in tightly. Add on a side of crispy tostones, but know the spot is cash-only.
