It looks like a tiny record store, and it is. But hidden inside is a tiny counter with two ladies making the best banh mi sandwiches in New York.
Overlooked and obscure, this midtown Cuban produces an array of first class foods, including an out-of-this-world pernil sandwich.
The artist formerly known as Tony Luke's produces the greatest of all philly sandwiches -- no, not the cheesesteak (though theirs is great.) It's the pork sandwich with broccoli rabe and extra sharp provolone. Maddon'!
