How to Make a Top-Quality ‘Cubano’ Sandwich From the Movie ‘Chef’

In a delicious episode of Binging With Babish, host Andrew Rea demonstrated how to make his recreation of the top-quality “Cubano” sandwich from the 2014 film Chef, written and directed by Jon Favreau.

Chef is holy ground for film foodies, and as demonstrated in a previous episode, has some real culinary chops behind it (courtesy of Roy Choi). I love a good Cubano as much as the next guy, but can some garlic and citrus really elevate my favorite hangover snack into something worthy of a What-About-Bob-Style “mmm”-fest?

Here is a scene from Chef where Carl (Jon Favreau) and Martin (John Leguizamo) make the specialty sandwich in a food truck.
