We’re coming up on four years since I checked in at Pan.com Sandwicheria. They recently relocated to the old Cuban Guys spot in Westland Mall and are now called El Patio Live by Pan.Com Restaurant.
Westland, as in Hialeah…stop it. You’re more than likely thinking; I’m not going to Hialeah. Well, your loss.
Pan.com is located conveniently right off the Palmetto Expressway and a couple of lights down on 49th Street. There’s also plenty of parking.
Marcela and I felt we were picking up where we left off in early 2019.
Went to the old faithful starters with Plantanitos en Tentacion and Medio Dia Croquettes. The latter is sweet plantains wrapped in bacon with five-spice syrup on a bed of sour cream.
It is not for every taste, and the execution was a little off; the bacon needs to be a bit more crispy. However, the flavor was spot on.
The Media Dia Croquettes are fried spheres filled with ham, Swiss cheese, pickles & bechamel served with a mustard dipping sauce. These fellas are recommended!
What about the Burger?
Regarding the burger, let’s skip all the pleasantries; it’s phenomenal. The fried onion is a thing from another world; I’m pretty sure it is an entire onion slice that was panko breaded and fried. I was not expecting that surprise.
I finished the meal with a Flan de Cabra and a Cortadito. The Flan was made from goat milk and was a hefty portion, possibly enough to share with four folks.
Since I’m a giant fan of anything made with goat milk, it was right up my alley. The cortadito was perfect; two swigs and done.
And there you have it, after almost four years, and Pan.com Sandwicheria is still thriving. That’s good news cause I need to visit again for their Frita Cubana.
