90 Miles Cuban Café
Unlike Miami, Chicago is no ninety-mile flight from Cuba, so we’re lucky the best Cubanos this side of the Sunshine State are still in Roscoe Village and Logan Square. And where else can you order a tableside pig roast (yes, snout-to-tail) for a party of ten? But for those craving a faster pork fix, stick with the Cubano. The sub-style sandwich is filled with ham, roast pork, Swiss cheese, dill pickles and yellow mustard. The sammie sounds standard enough, but there’s just something about the bread, which is made by Humboldt Park bakery Biondillo.
