When Clara Marino-Abel left the corporate world in search of something more fulfilling, it only made sense to channel her love of her heritage’s food and open up shop in a Cuban food truck. Mama’s Cuban Kitchen has since been roaming Long Island serving up Cubanos, empanadas, and other Cuban specialties.
Sure, ordering up some hot and fresh empanadas—stuffed with beef or chicken and potato—is never a mistake. It’s also safe to say grabbing a rice bowl full of delicious roast pork and sweet plantains is never a mistake. The only mistake you can make at Mama’s is leaving without at least a bite of their Cubano, an outrageously delicious sandwich that is famously difficult to nail. And guess what? Mama’s is nailing it. Book ‘em for your next event.
Cubano — Shredded roast pork, sliced ham, Swiss cheese, thinly sliced pickle, mustard, and their signature secret mojo sauce, on a buttered and panini-pressed Cuban roll. Sandwich perfection.
