Some places specialized in Cuban cuisine include the traditional Ropa vieja, Tostones or the most famous Cuban sandwich, with pork and other ingredients that make it characteristic of the area. The Cuban sandwich of New York is almost as popular as the Italian pizza of New York.
In the same way, sometimes the creativity goes more to the name than to the specific menu. Here, we can find places like Amor Cubano, Calle Ocho, Sophie’s Cuban Cuisine, Guantanamera, Havana Alma de Cuba, Yuca Bar, Agozar Cuban Restaurant or La Caridad 78 Restaurant–an example of Cuban ingenuity, not only reflected in the name but also on the menu combined with Chinese cuisine.
