Best Cubano Sandwich Ever!

My meal from this eatery was soooooo good that I decided to return for a consistency check. More on that shortly. Soy Guajiro (translated to I am a peasant) Cuban Restaurant is located in the City of Hialeah which is reportedly the 5th most populated in the State of Florida and has the highest concentration of Cuban-Americans in the entire United States. As such, Spanish with no English translation is prevalent even on the street signs.

The City was founded in 1921 and its name means High Prairie which was coined by a Seminole Indian named Willie Willie who, along with his tribe members would travel here from the Everglades, dock their canoes, and sell their wares to the newcomers to Miami. Hialeah was incorporated in 1925 and two of its early pioneers were aviator Glenn Hammond Curtiss (born 1878 - died 1930) and Missouri cattleman James H. Bright (born 1866 - died 1959).

Some of Hialeah's famous citizens include Harry Wayne Casey, founder of 1970's hit-maker K.C. and the Sunshine Band - formed in 1973 here and today has a park named in his honor- and Cuban American and Afro-Cuban singer and songwriter Juan Francisco Secada Ramirez, better known as Jon Secada, to name a few. The 236,000 resident city (2019) is also home to one of the last flights of aviatrix Amelia Earhart (born 1897 - died circa 1939).

Earhart left Hialeah for her mysterious trip around the world in 1937 that ended somewhere near Nukumanu, formerly Tasman Islands, an atoll (ring-shaped coral reef, island, or series of islets) of Papua New Guinea, located in the Southwestern Pacific Ocean, 4 degrees south of the equator. Today there is a fabulous 515-acre park named in her honor here at 401 East 65th Street. Learn more of the city's history on the QCT Miami Daily City Toursm Segment Three.

I decided to order a takeout this go round because of the threat of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) being on the rise in Miami-Dade County. The last time I dined outside at one of their sidewalk tables near the restaurant's entrance. I waited only about two minutes before being helped by one of the staff members who was very friendly and thankfully bilingual. The dining area was exceptionally clean, and the atmosphere was pleasant with traditional Cuban music playing at a moderate level in the background.

I once again ordered the Cuban Sandwich on Cuban bread (known as a Cubano) which is the most famous Latin American cuisine in South Florida that was created by Cuban immigrants. The sandwich comes with ham, cheese, red onions, green peppers, pickles, and roasted pork. It is best consumed after being toasted which flattens the bun and melts the cheese. Some folks order a side dish like chips, fries, or a salad but the sandwich is so big I rarely have room left in fact I usually only eat half now and the other as a late night snack.

My to go order was up in just a few minutes and the total came to $6.88 with taxes. I usually tip a dollar or so on small to-go orders. Again, what makes this sandwich so delicious is the toasting which melts the cheese and sauteed the onions and bell pepper. The roasted pork added icing to the cake as it was some of, it not, the best that I have ever consumed. It was so tender that it melted in my mouth and the seasoning was heavenly. I will certainly be back for yet another consistency check.
