Personal Notes:
Bop Bop (grandpa Govin) used to take me into Ybor city for lunch and we would go to the Silver Ring or the Tropicana for hot Cubans and his espresso. There is only 1 right way to do a "real" Cuban Sandwich. Use authentic style Cuban bread, a good smoked roast pork and don't ever be stingy with the meat! Cut foot longs into 3 inch pieces for Football gatherings and casual get togethers. Enjoy!
