El Cubanito Special: Authentic Cuban Meal at Cuba Mia
In a secret nook of Atlanta Buford Highway goodness hides some of the best Cuban grub one can dig up this side of Havana. And we're sharing this new secret with you first, which means El Cubanitos for everybody!
What To Expect
- 1/2 cubano sandwich
- Side of rice and beans
In Atlanta, when one is struck with a hunger that only a good Cuban sandwich can quell, the pickins' can be slim. Few people know this better than Carlos, who ventured northward up Buford Highway in Atlanta after growing up on a steady diet of Latin American cuisine, only to be confronted with a pitiful dearth of good Cuban eats. That all changed for the better when Carlos decided to open doors to his new Cubano sandwich hotspot: Cuba Mia!
Secreted away in a nook of ITP Buford Highway, Cuba Mia is just about the closest to Havana that a hungry Atlantan can get—a place where fervent connoisseurs whisper among their medianoche-loving compatriots like they are in some kind of underground club. Exclusive to us, Cuba Mia is granting us a first taste test with the forever loved El Cubanito. For those that are yet to be in the know, El Cubanito is a perfect combination of a cubano sandwich with a side of rice and beans. Cubanophiles, fear not: the sandwich is as tasty and as good as ever. And while we might not have a grandma hailing from Havana, Cuba Mia has to be the next best thing.
