Cuban Sandwich at El Sitio in Woodside, Queens

by

This is what a Cuban sandwich is supposed to taste like.  Fresh roast pork and sliced ham, Swiss cheese, pickles, and mustard surrounded by a crispy garlic-buttered, pressed hero roll. The price for porcine perfection? A mere $4.35. This sandwich is good enough to be at Citi Field, but it lives close enough on the 7 train (7 stops before, approx. 20 minutes) to lure you to Woodside for a taste before or after a Mets game.

I can’t speak for any of the other food at El Sitio, which looks a lot nicer on the outside than inside, but if the Cuban sandwich is the litmus test for deliciousness at a Cuban restaurant, El Sitio passes with flying colors. N.B.: Take this sandwich to go because Sripraphai, one of NYC’s best and most authentic Thai restaurants, is just four blocks away from El Sitio. Thanks Steve.

    this does look like a pretty good sandwich, but i’m probably never going to woodside in my life. how come i didn’t get an email notification of the new post food guy? i usually get an alert in my email..

    food guy, you’ve got some serious talent man! you never seem to disappoint!

    i hope the cash flow situation is steady, because you sure empty the bank to give us some proper food reviews! i recall Dr. D once suggesting you write these expenses off, I certainly hope you took his advice! but since it doesn’t look like you’re taking any pay pal donations any time soon, what do you say the readers treat you to a meal? i’m certainly down! thoughts guys??
