Cuban Sandwichaholic???


Recommended Posts

Heidi and I both had REAL cuban sandwiches at Sabor del Caribe in Riberas today and they were fantastic. Best I've had since leaving Florida! The sandwich is ham, pork (cooked the Cuban way!), swiss cheese, pickles and mustard...served with fries for $85 pesos. I would have gladly paid much more! All kinds of goodies on the menu at excellent prices. They bake their own bread and pastries. Took a loaf home and Heidi at about 1/3 befoer we arrived! Damn, it was good!

Uptight... on several other food / restaurant blogs Robertos  Cuban pork dishes have been  well liked ,not to mention rick ,Heidi and myself . You post  on almost every blog on  most of the forums ...

Dear Carnivore, There’s a lot I can say about your post and experience. First of all I want to apologize for your bad experience, secondly you mentioned being in the food industry yourself and should

We've gotten delivery and eaten there several times. Both are great. The fries don't travel very well, but that's to be expected. They have many more items on the full restaurant menu than on the delivery menu. Everything I've tried has been fantastic. Cozy, comfortable spot, too.

Why should I Google it? This is a board for local information here. I would think that a review would include detailed information on the location. Why should I go to an international site that is vacuuming up information on anyone going there and reselling it? Plus they will not be giving information on such as "near such in such" or "across from such in such" or "on lakeside or mountainside near such in such". Just my opinion!!!

When people say "Google it", they don't always mean that you actually use Google.  Similar to when people say "use a kleenex" when that is actually a brand name and there are other brands of tissues.   We haven't used Google as a search engine for a couple years.   Try duckduckgo.com      Just my opinion too!

Do they use a China Box (aka, La Caja China) to cook the pork?

My point is that search engines might be good for in some instances, but who would know better than someone who actually lives here and knows all the local details such as no search engine would? Just my opinion.

Hi Gringohombre! I'm so terribly sorry that I caused you such a problem! I couldn't think of any landmarks and I know how difficult googleing can be! God forbid you're ever faced waith a real dilema such as which utensil to use for soup! I can't believe how some people dig and dig for something to criticize! Buena suerte!

This time I agree with GringoHombre. In Riberas doesn't help. I drive thru Riberas and have never seen this restaurant. A link or a nearby would be useful. Granted I don't really want the address 'cause I don't like Cuban sandwiches, but other people might.

Sir...there was no criticizing involved. I was not even just asking you, just anyone here to give a simple landmark...Lakeside or Mountainside...near to...across from? Why has Google become such a God to some people. I prefer info from people who live here and can give simple clear directions...after all, is not this what this board is supposed to be all about?

This board is to give you information, not live your life for you. Use the big spoon for the soup.

Is not asking for a location and directions what you wrote here: "This board is to give you information"? Please...get out for some fresh air, and don't forget your mask!

But you didn't just ask. YOU BITCHED when someone suggested google. talk about needing fresh air. maybe you should take yours off. obviously you are getting no oxygen to the brain.

a good search engine is worth its weight in goldthese days. to refuse to do your own searches is like a little kidtelling his father he didnt ASK to be born. immature and close minded.

I am a guy who deals in FACTS...Please prove that I BITCHED and I will apologize. Looking at this post it looks like YOU are the one doing the BITCHING!!!

I have had that sandwich and it was delicious. I actually was going to the Mediterranean Cafe but drove by it (even though I have eaten there several times before). I was going to turn around and head back when I spotted this place. It was delightful and delicious!
