Cuban Sandwich-where?

Just saw the film Chef and now am dying for a good Cuban Sandwich. Other than Paseo, which I am very familiar with, where can one find a good traditional Cuban in the Puget Sound area?

  1. I still haven't tried them, but there's a Cuban place called Cafe con Leche in SoDo that has the.

      Tried it, terrible - not even close. I lived in Florida for 3 years and ate a lot of real Cuban sandwiches. And mofongo, gawd...whups, just dripped saliva on the old keyboard.

    2. Bongo's on Aurora might work? I haven't had their Cuban, but am working my way through the rest of their menu, and it's darn good. Another place that sells cubans that I haven't tried the cuban at but have liked other things is El Animal food truck.

        Thank you, both of these reccs look fabulous!

      2. The "Stuck Junction Saloon" in downtown Sumner makes the best Cubano sandwich I've ever had. The chef researched the proper crusty bread and it shows. Everything at Stuck Junction Saloon is made from scratch--no Sysco dreck. A Puget Sound gem.
