What: The Con Culo! sandwich (punctuation mark included). A pressed baguette gets slathered with mustard butter before being stuffed with braised ropa vieja, sliced pastrami, slow-roasted pork, house-cured ham, imported Swiss cheese, and dill pickles.
When: Wednesday at 2:00 p.m. during a pleasant-but-frantic office lunch.
The Final Bite: I’m normally not down with sandwiches that have more than two meats. It’s always seemed like a crutch—like you wouldn’t notice how mediocre the ham is as long as you’re being bombarded with turkey and bacon and roast beef. But the Con Culo! gets a pass—all the meats make sense because they’re all so different. The ropa vieja is juicy, the ham is sweet, the pastrami is peppery, and the roast pork provides a solid porcine base. A crispy baguette and a hefty slap of sour pickles make this sandwich well worth its $14.50 price tag.
