Cuban-sandwich making in Miami has been elevated to an art form as the sandwich maker expertly cuts artfully arranged layers of meat and other key ingredients onto the sandwich. It comes to no surprise that my expectations were extremely high when I was invited to try The Ultimate Cubano at the chic and contemporary Bistro One LR restaurant located in The Ritz Carlton, South Beach hotel in Miami Beach.
This is not your Abuela’s Cuban sandwich! The archetypal pressed ham and roast pork delicacy has just been upgraded to first-class with a Ritz-Carlton, South Beach twist. Ingredients like thinly sliced prosciutto, gruyere truffle cheese, bourbon marinated pork loin, topped with a crisp house-made pickle are sandwiched between warm flakey IPA bread. As if it wasn’t enough, The Ultimate Cubano is served with their exclusive recipe of mojo flavored fries.
I grew up in Miami and although I’m Argentine, I know a good Cuban sandwich when I have one. I found The Ultimate Cubano to be savory, the prosciutto added an elevated level of taste and the presentation was on par with the expected Ritz Carlton level of excellence. Accompany this delight with a cucumber caipirinha and you have yourself the perfect lunch or afternoon snack.
