Hemingway’s Cuban Kitchen also features a mural, and a bright modern design.

Happy National Cuban Sandwich Day. It’s not a federal holiday, but here in TBAY, we think it should be.

We have a few suggestions for celebrating:

Bodega, 1180 Central Ave, St. Petersburg | Go here for trendy vibes, an excellent Cuban (with roast pork, ham, swiss, pickles, mayo, and mojo), cafecito, sodas frescas, and beers.

The Cuban Sandwich Shop, 10434 N. Florida Ave., Tampa | If it’s in the name, it’s gotta be good. The Cuban Sandwich Shop serves three varieties of the iconic sandwich: one on an egg roll, a standard style, and one with an extra portion of sweet ham.

Hemingway’s Cuban Kitchen, 1910 N. Ola Ave., Tampa | This spot delivers “a modern twist on Cuban classics” with a classic pressed sandwich, bowl options, and yuca churros covered in a delectable cinnamon dipping sauce.
