Lunch at Interbay Meat Market

I decided to go out for lunch today, and on a referral, wen to Interbay Meat Market over on Interbay and MacDill Ave. Its like a small neighborhood grocery store with a meat and sandwich counter. I ordered the Large Cuban all the way. A foot long cuban(enough for two) came pressed. Very disappointed with the amount of meat in the sandwich(one slice of boiled ham folded in half, one slice of roast pork, one layer of swiss cheese, with the bread slathered with mustard on one side, and mayo on the other, and a few pickles, shredded lettuce, and three tomato slices sliced the wrong way. So far, my best cubans have come from Roberts Meats on Westshore Blvd. I may go back to try one of the other sandwich's, and they do have great lunch specials for under 5 bucks.

A great cuban sandwich in South Tampa can be found at the Konvenient Market at Cherokee and Himes(A couple of blocks south of Gandy) I haven't been in there in a few months, but they were charging $2.50 or $3.00 for a magnificent sandwich. The local name for the Interbay Meat Market is the "Green Store" Their hot food is pretty good for a quick lunch.
