The Cuban Sandwich Crisis Has A Winner: Tampa
And the results are in! Tampa, FL has been crowned the hometown of the Cuban sandwich, after more than 7,200 votes poured in to NPR.
The sandwich is, of course, the invention of cigar workers in Tampa's Ybor City. The standard version is cold or hot-pressed, with shredded pork, glazed ham, swiss cheese, pickle and mustard on white Cuban bread. (The Tampa version also has Genoa salami, which Miamians consider an abomination.)
