WELCOME TO THE 2ND ANNUAL ORLANDO CUBAN SANDWICH SMACKDOWN!

Fotosearch_k27261365

The version of this sandwich developed in Ybor City in the 19th century is said to reflect the ethnic composition of the people who settled there. Pork came from the Cuban community; the Spanish contributed ham, Russian and German Jews brought the mustard and pickles and, unique to the Tampa area, Italians added salami. We’re talking of course about the fabulously good Cuban Sandwich which we’ll be celebrating next month here in Orlando, in Miami in March and again in April in Tampa.

On Saturday, February 25th, at Valencia College on Kirkman Rd. will come Orlando’s attempt to identify the best Cuban Sandwich from restaurants and individual participants in this area and there’ll also be an attempt to make the biggest Cuban Sandwich in the world (current record is 128 ft long). Running from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm there will be plenty of food and drink to enjoy and great music as well. Free admission. If you’d like to participate or, otherwise, want more information, check out the website for Cuban Sandwich Festival.

The Orlando winner will represent this area at the 6th Annual International Cuban Sandwich Festival to be held at the Ybor City campus of Hillsborough Community College on Friday night, Saturday and Sunday, March 31st through April 2nd. Participating restaurants will come from all over the world, including London and Seoul competing for the title of “World’s Best Cuban Sandwich.” Should be great eats. Don’t miss these events!
