"Whenever I'm in Cuba, I'm astonished at how much they love cream cheese, even though it's not cheap or easy to find! This sandwich is named after a lady who now lives in Miami - where its served in every Cuban sandwich shop. The legend has it that she originated this sandwich at El Carmelo Restaurant in Havana, where she was a regular patron many years ago. Breakfast, lunch or snack..."
