Cuban sandwich Toronto

The top 5 Cuban sandwiches in Toronto

Cuban sandwiches aren't that common in Toronto but we do have some good ones. Find versions stacked with roasted pork, grilled ham, cheese, mustard and pickles and others that layer on genoa salami or sliced avocado.

Here are my picks for the top Cuban sandwiches in Toronto.

La Cubana
For a classic Cubano sandwich head to either location of this Cuban-styled diner that boasts locations on Ossington and on Roncesvalles. The plancha-pressed sandwich is crafted with layers of sliced ham, sous vide pork shoulder and gruyere cheese then finished with onions, pickles and chipotle mayo.

Ave Maria Latin CafĂŠ
This unassuming Koreatown cafe and convenience store makes a mean Cuban sandwich to go. The El Cubano ($7.50) here is loaded with black forest ham, porchetta, and genoa salami, plus cheese, guacamole and pickles.

The Federal
This Dundas West brunch spot is home to a Cubano sandwich ($14) featuring roasted pork, ham and cheddar on sourdough with classic condiments; mustard, pickles, aioli and the added deliciousness of avocado. Each order includes salad or rosti potatoes on the side.

Torteria San Cosme
This Kensington Market sandwich shop starts their Cuban sandwich ($12) with telera buns and then loads them with smoked ham and slow roasted adobo pork smothered with melted gouda and dressed with avocado, tomatoes, chipotle sauce and spicy dijon mustard.

Mad Dog Cafe
This East Chinatown cafe's Cuban sandwich ($7.25) on multigrain bread is kind of like a deluxe ham and cheese featuring grilled ham and swiss cheese with pulled pork, BBQ sauce and pickles.
