Is there anywhere in the Mission or Mission adjacent to get a decent Cuban sandwich??
Frutilandia makes a cubano. Not as good as it was when Cubans ran the place but one of the closer attempts currently available.

I don't have much to compare to I have only had a cuban sandwich in NY but I think the Cuban sandwich at Delessio Market & Bakery on Broderick is quit good. Nice chunks of slow roasted pork, ham and good sauce, melted swiss and pickles on a crusty 8" roll. I like to take it home and reheat it too.
I've become a big fan of Paladar on Kearny near Pine. Their Cuban sandwich is lighter than most--less greasy and thinner bread than you'd get at a Mexican torta shop.
They have a deal on takeout that's $6.50 for half a huge sandwich with soup. The tostones look awfully good too.
Also the cortadito is superb. Best Cuban coffee I've had outside Miami. (When I asked, they said the beans are Nicaraguan.)
