Guess where I'm eating a "Cruban" sandwich?

"How is a Cruban different from a Reuben?" I asked the sandwich maker behind the counter. "I have no idea, but it's one of my favorite sandwiches. You should get it, you'll like it," he replied. He was right, and while I'm not certain, my guess is that it's called a "Cruban" because of the cheese, a rich and nutty Wisconsin Grand Cru that melts beautifully.

Can you guess where I'm eating?

This sandwich looks nothing like a Cuban sandwich, a Cuban is not made with beef it is ham, swiss cheese, pickles, & mustard and hot pressed. You need to go to Florida to get a true Cuban sandwich.

Dunno, but that looks like a fine, fine sandwich.

A hot Cruban is found at the Colfax Marzczyk's and a cold Cruban is found at the 17th & Clarkson Marzcyk's.

Sooo gooood!

If you read the actual commentary, it's a twist on a Cuban and a Reuben...get the wordplay?  It's not meant to be a "true" Cuban sandwich.

@NickCO If you actually read the commentary, it's probably a twist on Cru cheese and Reuben.
