Cubanos from Manhattanville to Long Island City

Flor de Broadway, a bare-bones corner shop in Manhattanville, does little more than Cuban sandwiches, and they kill, says Alan Henderson.

Downtown, the Sophie’s mini-chain continues to turn out decent cheap Cubanos.

In Queens, djalexis recommends Las Vegas Restaurant, whose Cubano boasts first-rate roast pork with crispy cracklings, along with deli ham and strong Swiss cheese. But its garlic sauce is subpar, adds dj: “I love garlic, but this spread is cheap.”
