Strangest sandwich—Sausage (2008)
Havana Sandwich Queen
Cantinpalo is a giant Spanish salami craved by Dominicans, splendidly deployed at Havana Sandwich Queen to make a salami sandwich on an eight- or 12-inch length of baguette. Joining the chorizo on the splayed-open and toasted length of bread are lettuce, tomato, mayo, and—strangest of all—crispy potato sticks poured from the can, giving the sandwich an authoritative crunch. Other offerings at this new sandwich shop cum sit-down restaurant—decorated with tropical motifs— include Cuban sandwiches, natch, and Philly cheesesteaks, and all manner of steaks grilled and sided with rice and plantains.
