  1. OMG, those sandwiches are HUUUUGE! Everything looked so good. I would have liked that breaded steak too! Now I’m really curious about that ‘colada’ coffee!

      Hi CC – I know, the sandwiches were so big! Luckily we shared everything (though we still had leftovers). And I loved the prices, too haha! So cheap and good.

    You had hot coffee!!! Yes!! So happy to hear that it was a success and it didn’t blow up your stomach.

    The sandwiches look amazing. I CANNOT believe how big those things were. I was rolling on the floor when I read “Chris said the small is “really small” so I think his idea of “small” and mine are totally freakin’ different because HELLO LARGE SANDWICH.”

    That was a HUGE cuban sammy! Jeez is it because we’re chicks and hence have a different meaning of a really small sandwich. Me thinks not. What a great value.

    I seriously want to switch friends with you for a day. Not that I don’t love my friends. But every time I eat with friends, they never over order. Whereas I want to order everything on menu. I’m so jealous of your meals with your buddies.

    Your trip looked so fun. I cannot wait to read more about it 🙂

      Hi Faye – Yes! I did! But it was such a small amount I knew it wouldn’t kill me. I can’t have like, a whole cup. But I can have two little shots! 🙂
      Yeah, since we never ordered the small sandwich I really doubted it was that small because the large was like, way too much. The three of us shared everything to maximize the number of things we ate and tried. Usually we would order two entrees and an appetizer and that was plenty. We would all eat just enough and have no leftovers (yay). Thought we totally over order at places, too (like bakeries – because “mmm, carbs” haha).
