At the Whole Foods Market in Harlem, Manhattan, shoppers can grab a Cuban sandwich to go thanks to the newly introduced 'CUBAN.' The sandwich stand serves up the Caribbean island's classic pressed sandwiches in a pre-made format, heating them up in a panini press on the spot so that shoppers can eat the sandwich as intended.
Whole Foods' CUBAN offers up several varieties of Cuban sandwiches. These include classics like roasted pork shoulder and ham, braised beef and chimichurri, and a modified Cubano called the Faux-bano that features avocado. The sandwiches also come with sides like Cuban black beans and rice or mojito slaw. They're served up in to-go containers, so consumers can eat while they're shopping or they can opt to pack them up and save them for when they finish their trip.
