For those times when you need a massive sandwich ASAP, or to stash away for lunch, a picnic, or a road trip, stop by this pan-Latin vegan bodega in Dumbo. Run by California born, Salvadoran-Mexican owner Jeremy Dean, the short menu has six sandwiches total, including his take on a chopped cheese and a sausage, egg, and cheese, but the real star is the Cubano made with jackfruit, vegan provolone, mayo, turkey, and the requisite mustard and pickles. While most faux-cheese and meats substitutes can be a little disappointing, we can definitely get behind Vodega’s version of the classic. It’s perfectly cheesy, meaty, and tangy thanks to a swipe of mustard and the briny pickles.
