  1. Cafe Habana...Love them there.

    1. Margon has great cubanos. Cafe Habana has great looking waitresses.

      1. There's a lot of good information on these 2 threads from April of this year.

        1. Margon is good, as is Sophie's.

            I personallym have to disagree with Sophie's...JUST my personal opinion. It actually had a funky smell/taste and the pork was definitely NOT fresh.

            1. re: italianagambino

              I had a a really bland Cuban from the Sophie's on W40th.

          2. The best I've ever had is at a divey Dominican place on Adam Morgan Place between West 157 and 156th (very close to the #1 train.) They roast their own pork and it's very flavorful. Sandwich could use more pickles IMO. They don't always have Cubans though, so you need to be lucky.
