an infamous Cuban sandwich
Ever since Jon Favreau's movie Chef graced the screens I have been preaching that Perth needs a good dose of Cuban food. That tempting sizzle of the Cuban sandwiches hitting the hot plancha press could be played on loop over and over.
A Cubano is an a-pork-alypse of flavoursome goodness, a white loaf licked with butter, wedged with layers of roast pork, glazed ham, Swiss cheese and thinly-sliced dill pickles. Then placed on a hot press until the loaf turns a crispy, golden brown and the tell-tale 'I'm ready' legs of melted cheese drip down the sides.
With Cocina Bandito popping up at 140 Barrack, you can find out what this Cubano business is all about. You know you are in good hands when its the energetic team behind The Classroom and soon to open Lucky Chan's Laundry & Noodlebar. Just have a little trust and try the Cubano, you'll thank me later.
