I am looking to see if there is anywhere between Seattle and Portland that has any decent Cuban food?

        I like Paseo but I remember there being one sandwich in particular I liked ahead of the others. It's the one that has the warning of (may take longer than others to prepare) or something to that effect. Anyone know which menu item I'm talking about?

        The corn has been hit or miss for me. On the one hand, I like a rich, garlicky buttery, oily corn on the cob, but some times it just feels a bit too heavy-handed and over dressed for my taste.

          Its the midnight cuban press. I think its number 9 or so. Agree about the corn.

          Paseo Cuban sandwich isn't really a Cuban sandwich in the traditional sense.

          It's a good 'wich, but if you looking for a "Cuban Food Experience" Paseo really isn't the right call.

          I can't really think of any Cuban places. La Isla is technically Puerto Rican, but might be closer to want you're thinking.

          Not sure if it's strictly Cuban, or if it's such South American themed food, but La Casa Del Mojito in Seattle is also good.

            Ditto Paseo. Lunchtime is worth the wait - sandwiches are awesome. Pambiche in PDX.
