La Ideal Sandwich Shop
La Ideal Sandwich isn't a large restaurant. It's not fancily decorated, either. That's because the staff is focused on the food. Thanks to the chefs' dedicated, one-of-a-kind take on traditional Cuban fare, their eatery is known as an unpretentious, highly delicious institution. At once authentic and unique to La Ideal, the sandwiches and pastelitos draw a daily deluge of breakfast and lunch eaters, who often like to wash their meals down with classic Cuban-style coffee. Sandwiches are the house specialty, and the style that anchors the sandwich menu is, as one might guess, the Cuban. But even here, La Ideal's cooks do things their own way, using shaved meats. They even do the pastries their own way, baking guava pastelitos that are now known as one of the restaurant's specialties.
