Guess What? The Best Cuban Sandwich is Not in Miami

Sorry, Miami- The Best Cuban Sandwich is in Union City!

The Cuban Sandwich originated in Havana at the turn of the 20th century. In the 1930s, it became known as el sandwich mixto. Since their arrival on American soil in the 1960s, Cubans in Miami have strived to perfect it. They have come very close.

Mi Tierra Restaurant is now proud to present the recipe that escaped even the most esteemed chef of Versailles the Perfect Cuban Sandwich. Yes, you can’t find the perfect Cuban sandwich in Miami. It is in the heart of Union City’s vibrant Cuban community, at Mi Tierra Restaurant on Bergenline Avenue. If you are visiting the Greater New York Area from abroad and refuse to take our word for it, take us up on our challenge and visit Mi Tierra Restaurant, owned by young Cuban-American entrepreneur Danny Marrero, whose affable personality and dedication to deliver the best Cuban food makes Mi Tierra a true jewel of Cuban cuisine.

  1. Respectfully, I agree with you and disagree with you. I fully agree that the best Cuban sandwich is NOT in Miami. However, I contend that the best Cuban can be found in Arlington, TX not in Union City, at the (amusingly enough) Mi Tierra restaurant. This Mi Tierra in Arlington, is owned by the charming Damaris. Either way, you’re spot on in saying the best Cuban sandwiches are NOT in Miami.

  2. Please send pictures of the sandwich and we’ll be happy to let everyone know. Then accept our challenge for an open competition. Thank you very much for your opinion and keep on visiting our site. Remember we’ll publish pictures and also write that you guys are claiming the Best Cuban Sandwich! We’ll be happy to do so since Miami has chicken out!
