Another name for the Cuban sandwich is the Cubano.

New York City bagels are renowned for their distinct characteristics—chewy interior, shiny, slightly crispy exterior, and a rich flavor.

Often considered some of the best in the world, these bagels have become an iconic part of the city's culinary identity. Here are some key features of New York City bagels:

Chewy Texture: New York City bagels are known for their dense and chewy texture. This distinctive quality comes from the unique preparation method, which involves boiling the dough before baking.

Roast Pork (Lechón): Marinated and slow-roasted pork, often seasoned with a mixture of garlic, cumin, oregano, and citrus, until it's tender and flavorful.

1. Ham: Sliced ham, usually smoked or roasted, is a key protein component of the sandwich. 2. Swiss Cheese: A layer of Swiss cheese is added for its mild and nutty flavor, which complements the other ingredients.

1. Pickles: Dill pickles provide a crisp and tangy element that balances the richness of the meats and cheese. 2. Mustard: Yellow mustard is the traditional choice, adding a sharp and zesty flavor to the sandwich.

Optional Ingredients: Some variations include additional elements like salami or mayonnaise, depending on regional preferences.

Slice and Prepare the Bread: Cut the Cuban bread or baguette into sandwich-sized lengths. Slice the bread horizontally, creating a top and bottom piece for the sandwich.
