Cubatón Sandwich Shop


Time Out says

After kicking off his culinary career in New York, David Reidenberg transplanted to Miami during the pandemic and eventually created Cubatón, a worthy homage to this town’s most famous dish.

The tiny shopfront a block off Española Way serves a tight menu of handhelds, from “The Classic” Cubano to pan con lechón and medianoche, all made with pork marinated in citrus-garlic mojo and slow-roasted for over 14 hours. Of course, the bubbly, 30-year-old Reidenberg has included a couple of his own new-wave creations, like a Cuban made with hot honey (delicious) and even a veggie option.

On the sweet side, pair the pan con timba (a pressed guava and queso sandwich like abuela would make) with an iced café bonbón, a double shot of Cuban-style espresso served over ice and topped with a homemade tres leches blend and a drizzle of sweetened condensed milk. The batidos (milkshakes) are seasonal, like this summer's pineapple and coconut flavor.

The shop itself is sunny and teal-hued in keeping with the Deco neighborhood. There’s a smattering of sidewalk seats and a small bench inside, so don’t plan to linger long. Luckily, all of the items pair perfectly with a day at the beach, just a short walk away.
