Our Cuban sandwich was featured in the January 2009 issue of the Indianapolis Monthly.
True, there are the 16-or-so bourbons, the 26 single-malt Scotches, and—the real raison d'etre of the place—more than 300 types of cigars. But then, heroically, there is the sandwich. The six-month-old Indy Cigar Bar, brainchild of former Davidoff regional manager Corey Johnston, doesn't even have a menu, but you don't have to go hungry here. Behold, offered up there on the chalkboard: one of the best Cuban sandwiches in the city. Johnston, who says he thinks his wife got the recipe out of an old issue of Bon Appetit, has hit close to the center of the offshore target: a pork loin, dunked 24 hours in a garlic, ginger, honey, and soy marinade and then slow-rosted on a grill, then sliced thin; a sliver of good ham and one of Swiss cheese; a pickle slice; a swipe of mayo and mustard; then a firm pressing, leaving deep and even marks on a decent torpedo roll. "Saying 'Cuban sandwich' is a lot like saying 'pizza,'" Johnston says. "There are so many variations. But we've had people come in who know Cuba and Miami who say they think we've got it right."
