Luke : Your speech pattern kills me

Rayne Maybe : Damn it. Now I want a cuban.

Ronnell Jackson : why does it sound like he's about to sing

Kaliss : The secret sauce is actually the blood of capitalists.

Brutally Honest Canuckistani : Can you use Castro oil in this recipe? I want it to be authentic.

Kay Lew : "It's ready to be porked"

Elisabeth Blackwood : Chef John, I just love your videos! I have anxiety disorder and struggle with terrible panic attacks at night. Watching you cook is so helpful! Your voice is so soothing, and well, who doesn't love food? Maybe one day I'll even make one of your recipes, lol! Just wanted you to know that you're making a big difference for some nobody in Indiana. Thanks!

Donal Skehan : Oh Chef John- this just looks EPIC! All about that cheesy filling and the paper pork- this puts the apples I'm having for breakfast to shame- TO SHAME! :)

Ian Singer : Being from Tampa, I can affirm these will change you forever. This is a Miami Cubano. Tampa cuban: Add a nice slice of soft italian salami. (Thanks Italian immigrants!) If you can't find Cuban bread, use an egg roll. These are called "Media Noche. Not quite the same tho....

Suzanne Baruch : This video has FINALLY solved one of life's mysteries for me: if Kim Kardashian, Justin Bieber and Blac Chyna were drowning, and I only had time to save one of them, what sandwich would I make? Definitely a Chef John Cuban Sandwich.

Steph Reed : how about a cafe bustelo and guava pastry to go with it?

erikjaroy : I'm a Florida boy, and I've eaten a TON of Cuban sandwiches in my day. And Chef? If you opened up a sandwich store anywhere near where I lived, you'd have a customer for life! That looks beyond amazing! :)

kalex888 : I wonder how many weight watchers points we have here

Icarus : Is chef John a psychopath? look at the bread on the right at 2:31

busa89 : No mayo on my Cubans lol. Mustard only

himakgam : you should also make a video about cast iron pan seasoning/maintenance. those are wonderfully seasoned pans.

Nancy Johnston : Notice Chef John says 'Cuban bread', which makes the sandwich a Cuban sandwich rather than any old' ham and cheese sandwich. It's a must.

Jackie Arteaga : YES! you need to eat this with plantain chips!

Chef Lammy : LMOA, the birds have to eat too.

Razilation : Seeing Chef John making the sandwich is like watching a professional Tetris player laying his blocks down

Ryan Rognas : 'hot cheesy meat bomb' sounds like a hip hop track made by disgruntled short order cook.

brian kelly : Fidel would be proud of you...

Leah Laushway : This is the sexiest thing I've seen all week.

Young Chef : i Love Sandwich

AbackHND2DAface : This was almost perfect Cuban sandwich except you missed the salami. I'm from West Tampa and was raised off Cuban Bread. A bacon, eggs and American Cheese with mayo breakfast Cuban is the best sandwich in the world in my opinion (mayo optional). I normally try to avoid America cheese but seems to taste better than Swiss or Cheddar. You may want to try it out. Anyway love the channel.

Danny : One day I'll make my own Cuban sandwich and add saurkraut on top of everything else because that just sounds to good and my life will be complete. Until then I'll keep settling on the normal way as seen here and be content. Thanks for the video Chef John! :)

hailey dixon : I've been craving a Cuban for weeks!!!!

White Thunder BBQ : I like using some mojo to warm up the pork in.

asaldanapr : I am Puerto Rican, close enough to Cuban, and they make their sandwiches with mustard and butter and although I love it with lots of pickles and make mine like that, they do not use so many. Their ham is smoked and their pork is roasted so you were quite close, but the mayo addition although good, is not original. we are lucky in Florida we can get Cuban bread at most grocery stores!

Joanna R : I'm about ready to bust my head through my monitor and have a giant bite of that sangwich (I'm Italian). Ah yea.

Sonyag1 : Sliced avocado would have kicked it up another notch. Yum...

Peter Šori : it's 2:37 in morning, I'm on my computer and hungry AF... and there is a new FoodWishes video .. WHY, WHY, WHY!?

OldManCooking : Beautiful Cuban Sandwich... Interesting I always thought Cuban food was spicy ...but No... Thank you Chef! :)


Alley Kat : Oye chico, eso esta de película!!!!

that guy : Hispanic food on inauguration day. I see you chef john ;)

Tamara Tamtam Morris : This would be absolutely divine with ropa vieja for the filling.

Kalapurka : HAVE YOU SEEN CHEF!?

GirlGeek : That crisp sound was like an porn at it's finest

AMR15x : I have never wanted a sandwich so god, it looks amazing.

Eugene Poon : I went to Cuba for a month and didn't see any of these sandwiches lol.

harringtonpassedaway : Chef John... where is the salami? I trusted you... Sincerely, A concerned Tampa native

Erbmon : Dude, you just HAVE to try and make a lomito, a typical argentinian sandwich (just for you to taste it, video not necessary): Thin slices of loan (cow meat) cooked in a really hot pan with some chimichurri sauce (to give it the moists, thats the secret). When the meat's done you just put it between two halves of arab bread, with some ham, cheese, lettuce and tomato slices. Toast it. You can add a fried egg on top of the meat, inside the sandwich and you are done (put some extra chimichurri on it, you wont regret it).

Zandra N : Chef John I thank you for caring about hungry birds 🐦!😄🐤🐧🐔

mary w : My mouth watered when I heard the knife cutting through. I love Cuban sandwiches but we get our bread in Tampa and they have the palm leaves impressed in. How does that work? I live in Florida and have an overabundance of saw palmetto!

VoodooKitchenMama : My Favorite sammich!

serafin haro : "que mas carne, ni mas carne.. asi viene el sangwich, meng!" what's up Chef John!!

Rubashow : When I inevitably get a coronary my last words will be: "It's Chef John's fault. And it was totally worth it."

MUDSWAT : The sandwich is one of my favorite foods.... I mean I really love sandwiches !

Alfredo C : Greatest sandwich on Earth. Also called the Medianoche [Midnight] for some reason.
