Find The Best Cuban Sandwich in Wenatchee
I seem to focus on food a lot. I was thinking about a movie called “Chef” with Jon Favreau. Jon (the chef) wound up “finding himself” while running a food truck with his sous chef played by John Leguizamo and his son Percy played by Emjay Anthony. The food truck's specialty was the Cuban sandwich. Watch it on Netflix.
Now, what makes a great Cuban sandwich, and where do I find one in Wenatchee?
Start with good crusty bread, and add roast pulled pork, ham, Swiss cheese, pickle, and mustard. Bust out that panini grill you got for Christmas and warm it up.
There are several places where you can get a Cuban sandwich with varying degrees of success.
The Lemolo Café and Deli, 114 n. Wenatchee Av.
Café Columbia, 7 N. Worthen St, at Pybus Market.
Glaze Bakery, 595 Grant Road, E. Wenatchee. (that’s the one you are looking at right now). The Glaze Cuban sandwich is a bit different. Add turkey to the ham and pulled pork. Instead of crusty french bread, Glaze uses ciabatta bread that they bake in-house. Sorry, no panini press on this one. The sandwich is huge and will easily feed two people.
Probably the best version of the Cuban sandwich in eastern Washington can be found not in Wenatchee but in Pasco Washington at Vinny’s Bakery, 1107 W Lewis St. It’s been a few years since I’ve been there but I still remember their Cuban sandwich. It was the real deal, crunchy, salty, sweet, tangy, and hot off the grill. Watch the movie, try the Cuban. I think you will like it.
