Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Cuban Sandwich Day.

In 2016, reporter Christopher Spata at the Tampa Bay Times literally made up National Cuban Sandwich Day and issued a press release about the delicious pressed amalgamation of crunchy bread, meats, cheese, pickles and mustard.

The story got picked up all over the U.S., and people embraced the idea, creating what is now considered one of the most celebrated "food holidays" on the planet.

The Cubano traditionally consists of ham, roast pork, Swiss cheese, pickles, and mustard on Cuban bread.

The Cuban sandwich likely originated in cafes catering to Cuban workers in Tampa or Key West, two early Cuban immigrant communities in Florida centered around the cigar industry. Later on, Cuban exiles and expatriates brought it to Miami, where it is also very popular.
