Cheap Eats 2013: Mi Cuba Café

Quick reviews of ethnic cuisines you can experience for less than $25 a person, tax and tip included.

To say this place has the best Cuban sandwich in the area isn’t saying much in a city that’s never had a Little Havana. But its rendition of roast pork, ham, and pickles on a pressed, buttered roll could compete anywhere. So could the picadillo, a beef hash that has the lusciously soft texture most versions are missing. This is as hole-in-the-wall as it gets, but the food is worthy of a festive, cocktail-fueled night out.
