A variation of a classic ham and cheese sandwich that likely originated in Florida cafes around 1896, the Cubano Sandwich is a staple in Miami street food.
Without a doubt, Menú Urbano makes it easy to take this street food recipe home by simply grilling this tasty sandwich. Start by blending the unique flavors of ham, roasted pork, Swiss cheese, and pickles and you’re on your way to enjoying this Miami favorite.
Although Tamales have been made as early as 7,000 B.C., the modern tamale that we know today became the perfect meeting place of Mesoamerican and European cultures.
In comparison, the “recent” innovation of what we know today as a tamale really took off in El Paso in the 1920s. It’s developed into a holiday tradition that the whole family takes part in. And it’s easy to see why! This recipe makes a ton of tamales. So, you will need help to make and eat the tamales.
LA is known for not only its street food but also delicious carnitas. Easy to carry and enjoy, Tacos de Carnitas featured in Menú Urbano are prepared authentic slow-cooked pork.
