Chef Alberto Cabrera just opened up Little Bread in Little Havana. This comes just a couple of months shy of Bread + Butter Counter‘s 2 year anniversary, B+B is his other restaurant. Sandwiches are more my speed and that’s what Little Bread is all about.
The Sandwiches at Little Bread are serious business, just take the Pulpeta (without a dissertation, it’s a Cuban-style Meatloaf) for example. The Pulpeta is made of Ham with an Egg center & topped with Mojo Onions, Tomato Marmalade & Provolone Cheese. My first thought was why not Swiss Cheese but it would overpower what’s going on here.
The Pan con Bistec (which is already legendary in my book) is shaved Roast Beef, Shallot Fondant, Julienne Potatoes, Tomato & a house-made Aioli. Do not ignore the Media Noche Croquetas (not Croquettes as the menu states) which were carried over from Bread + Butter Counter, they are a must-have.
I normally lean towards the *traditionalist side of things which is why I held out on eating the “Classic Cuban” Sandwich which has Salami, a Tampa Cuban Sandwich ingredient. My next visit will include the properly spelled Elena Ruz (Malta Lacquered Turkey, Whipped Goat Cheese, Berry Compota, Bacon, Swank Arugula) and the Choripan & Peppers (House Chorizo, Rustic Apple Romesco, Red Mustard Frill).
There’s a nice selection of sweets from the Guava Pound Cake to the smaller Coquitos (Passion Fruit & Shaved Coconut Macaroons) and the Cremitas de Leche w/Bacon & Sea Salt (not pictured).
In the next couple of weeks expect Daily Sandwich Specials and a BBQ Sunday Brunch added plus multiple visits from me, lol

*If I’m such a traditionalist what am I doing ordering a Media Noche Club? I didn’t think it would have Lettuce & Tomato and really re-thinking my thought process that was pretty dumb of me to think that.
