What: A small variation of the Cuban sandwich in which a sweeter, yellow-hued egg bread is substituted for Cuban bread. It is also generally buttered and pressed, with roasted pork, ham, Swiss cheese, and pickle inside. Medianoche means “midnight”; the sandwich is called so due to its alleged (onetime) popularity as a late-night, post-nightclub snack in Havana.
Where: El Palacio de los Jugos (305-264-1503; multiple locations, including 5721 W. Flagler St. near NW 57th Ave., map) is a great spot for a medianoche.
When: Mon-Sat, 7am-9pm; Sun, 7am-8pm. Despite the sandwich’s name and nighttime tradition, feel free to try one at any hour of the day.
Order: A medianoche ($4.25), with a fresh jugo for good measure. Also try the croquetas here.
Alternatively: You’ll find good medianoches listed on the paper menus of Luis Galindo Latin American Cafeteria (305-267-9995; two locations, including 898 SW 57th Ave.; map) as well, and most other Cuban spots in town.
