La Cubana

392 Roncesvalles Ave, Toronto, ON M6R 2M9

This cozy neighbourhood cantina has captured the hearts (and stomachs) of Roncesvalles residents, thanks to its colourful interior and tasty Cuban menu. The pressed Cubano — a tropical twist on the classic grilled cheese sandwich — has become a local fave. The warm sandwich features slices of Gruyere cheese, slow-roasted molasses pork shoulder, black forest ham, minced red onion, grainy mustard and chipotle mayo, all pressed between fresh-baked white bread. Pair this tasty sammy with a sweet and creamy café con leche and you just might convince yourself that you’re hanging out in Havana.

Check your attitude at the door because the sandwiches here come with plenty of sass. They’re enormous creations with a mile-long list of toppings, demanding your full attention and both hands to devour. If you’re not sure where to start, the Jagger (smoked beef tongue pastrami, mustard, rye bread) is a good intro, while the Birdman (fried buttermilk chicken thighs, pickled carrot/celery slaw, Stilton mayo, baguette, Sriracha honey dipping sauce) is for pro eaters.

This resto-pub makes having a sandwich on a Friday night impossibly cool, but no matter when you go, the experience is awesome with live jazz and blues music every evening of the week. For vegetarians, the Portobello sandwich (Bermuda onion, roasted peppers, fontina cheese, pesto aioli) is tops, while meat-eaters can challenge themselves with the triple-decker clubhouse (chicken breast, double pancetta, lettuce, tomato and guacamole). Pair either with one of the dozen beers on tap.
