Where can I get a Cuban Sandwich in MTL?

Just got back from NYC where I had the best cuban sandwich. Can anyone recommend a place in MTL to get one? I'm dying to have another one!! This version included ham, cheese, a warm seasoned pulled pork, pickles, and mustard.

    Olive et Gorumando is the only place in town that I can think of who even attempts an approximation of a cuban. It's quite good for what it is, imo. Don't expect Little Havana though.

      You might try Café Cubano - it's had some good reports here, if I recall:

        AFAIK, but keep in mind I haven't been in a couple of years, Cafe Cubano does not serve Cuban sandwiches.

        The best Cuban sandwich in town is from Chipotle and Jalepeno at 1481 Amherst (corner de Maisonneuve). I have had Olive et Gorumando's and while it is a fine sandwich suitable for Parisian tourists, it is not a Cuban sandwich. Vieille Europe also sells a very fine sandwich that they call a Cuban sandwich, but isn't.

        Of the two wannabes, Vieille Europe's is a better sandwich, while Olive and Gourmando has tables and lines.

          I like the one at Anton & James on Stanley, ham, chicken, mustard, cheese and pickles

          Not truly authentic but definitly good

            Thanks everyone. I'm going to try them all over the next few weeks I'm sure!

              I heart the OandG sandwich - and I've never had an authentic Cuban one that I know of, so I'm fine with the faux version. It's salty, but I like salt so...just sayin'.
