cubano

Made since the 1500’s in Cuba (referred to there simply as “sandwich”), and imported to Key West and Tampa with the cigar factories in the 1800’s, this simple and scrumptious sandwich has rightfully become one of the most popular throughout the United States.

Elephants Delicatessen makes it the traditional way – pressing ham, pork, Swiss and pickles between two slices of our fresh-baked ciabatta, with just a touch of mustard. Pressing the sandwich fuses the meats and cheeses into a savory hand-held treat, perfect for enjoying on a patio with a cool drink to hand, or even on the go, walking the sun-dappled streets of Portland.

Visit any Elephants location starting July 9th for summer’s best sandwich.
