As you may (or may not) know, I hardly eat out for lunch but I was pretty stoked about lunch at Delux, simply because I've heard so much about it (especially their Cubano sandwich!)
We wanted mojitos but they didn't have any (ran out?) so we ordered mimosas instead. My friends had coffee as well.
CONCH FRITTERS ($8)
CUBAN MEDIANOCHE - Cider cured pork shoulder, ham and gruyere on a fresh baked soft bun ($8)
CUBAN DINNER - Roast pork, rice and beans, plantains, salad ($14)
FRIED RIPE PLANTAINS ($4)
PRESSED CUBANO ($10)
CUBAN CREME BRULEE ($5)
The conch fritters, with finely diced conch incorporated into its light, doughy batter, were soft and fluffy but perhaps a bit on the bland side (this was easily fixed by the dip). I couldn't leave Delux without having their signature Cubano sandwich, which turned out to be friggin' delicious. Filled with cured pork shoulder, ham, gruyere, grainy mustard, cornichons, red onions and chipotle mayo, all tucked between two slices of perfectly grilled bread, this pressed Cubano sandwich was just off the charts! A much more interesting side than plain ol' fries, I also loved the fried plantains, which were naturally soft and sweet. We ended lunch with the Cuban creme brulee and donuts. Creamy with a hint of coffee flavour, we all really liked the Cuban creme brulee. The donuts, served hot and lightly dusted with sugar, were incredibly tasty with the dulce de leche and cream.
