Margon Makes Aziz Ansari’s Favorite Cuban Sandwich
The Village Voice doesn’t branch out into Midtown too often (and quite frankly, do you blame them?), but I still love their blog Eat For Victory, and -of course- Robert Sietsema’s “Counter Culture” column. They always have great recs, especially for inexpensive and authentic eats, and we’re clearly not the only ones who think so. Last week, in response to a challenge from the owner of Casa Havana, Eat for Victory launched a best Cuban sandwich contest- and Comedian Aziz Ansari from Human Giant, posted this nominee in the comments:
My favorite cubano in the city hands down is at Margon on 46th btw 6th and 7th ave. They throw in a slice of salami that takes the whole thing to another level. I’m not sure that raw garlic can compete with that as far as genius.
Midtown represent! That piece of salami actually makes it more of a Dominican style ”Cuban” sandwich- but why bother getting technical? It’s freakin’ Aziz Ansari! (Sorry, I’m a huge Human Giant fan. That dude is freakin’ hilarious.) You may remember Human Giant from such informative films as this K.C. Rib Ticklers video I posted a link to a few months ago.
To nominate your favorite Cuban Sandwich, go to Eat For Victory. You have until tomorrow.
