Hi guys! This is David of David’s Been and I hope you’re hungry because today I’m teaming up with Triposo to show you the top 5 Cuban sandwiches in Miami.

Triposo is a travel app that I’ve used in my travels to find hotels, restaurants, sights and activities. I love that I can create my own city guides and that it works offline so I don’t have to worry about data charges. Today I’m using it in my hometown of Miami to search for the best Cuban sandwiches in the city! As you know Miami has a huge Cuban-American community, and here, people take their Cuban sandwiches very seriously.

First stop is Versailles, the most famous Cuban restaurant in the world. It’s is a family-owned restaurant since 1971 and it’s located on Calle Ocho.

Last but not least my Triposo app is recommending Cane a Sucre, which means “Sugarcane” in French. This place puts a French twist on the classic Cuban sandwich.
