Luke : Your speech pattern kills me

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

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

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

Muh Richard : stop raising your pitch at the end of each sentence, your vocal coach is an idiot

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!

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

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.

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

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....

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! :)

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! :)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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!?

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!

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

Danny Campbell : 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! :)

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

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

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.

Jason Delangie : Show us all how to make the perfect peanut butter and jelly sandwich!

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

The Shootist : You're supposed to butter the crust of the bread before you press the sandwich -- The Columbia Restaurant, Ybor City, Tampa, Florida. I tell you what.

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

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

Andii Mc : Could you make some traditional Welsh recipes? Such has Cawl (traditional soup), Welsh rarebit, Bara brith or Welsh cakes. St David's day is March 1st (the patron Saint of Wales) so would be the perfect time to do it. Would love to see your take on Welsh cooking!

Father Bertolucci : Dear Chef John on behalf of the Pan-American Federation of Cayenne Pepper Growers I would like to thank you for your services to our industry. I hope you received the check we sent last month.

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

Kalapurka : HAVE YOU SEEN CHEF!?

Kyle Pugh : Doesn't a Cuban sandwich use marinated pork with sour orange marinade? Or is that just a variation chef?

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

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

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

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!

eun : im on a diet but this looks so good lmao

anye76 : never had this sandwich before but now I want one. I noticed you cut the sandwich on the bias was that intentional or is that how you must serve this Cuban? Those look like parsnip chips.

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

2dub2steady : Chef John, In Tampa, FL. salami is almost always added. Usually Genoa salami. It always seemed odd to me but it works very well. Thank you for all of your wisdom bestowed upon us. You are a benevolent soul indeed. peas and carrots Chef.

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

Big Papi : Great recipe. Is there a egg-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan version available?
