I can live by sandwiches alone my friends and family know this. Ever searching for a perfect sandwich, ordering one has become a habit every time there’s something interesting in the menu. Last year, I remember going to Pepi Cubano in Makati to meet a friend. We ordered the Pan Media Noche because I’m a sucker for ham and cheese. And it was the best sandwich I had in quite a while. Too bad busy schedules prevent me from frequenting Pepi Cubano.
So, when I got an invite to the official launch of Pepi Cubano over at Uptown Mall BGC, (so very, very near my place!) I got super excited that even the hard rain didn’t stop me from going there.
The festive atmosphere was not dampened by the continuous rain. We saw that there’s already a line formed by people wanting to have a taste of Pepi Cubano’s menu.
Guests and customers witnessed the ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open Pepi Cubano Uptown Mall BGC branch. The atmosphere became more exciting with the arrival of Viva Artists like Ella Cruz, Meg Imperial, Tim Macardle, Donnalyn Bartolome, and Janine Tenoso. A live band performed while people enjoyed partaking of several Pepi Cubano dishes.
On our part, we enjoyed the Pan de Lechon and Pan de Bistec. The large sandwich with its very generous filling inside a perfectly crisp bread just proves that Pepi Cubano indeed has the best sandwich in town. Their Nachos El Queso Fundido, Papas Rellenas, and Queso de Bomba is perfect with the Mango Coronarita and the Mojito we ordered. What more, they have Arroz Cubano you can enjoy anytime of the day.
PEPl CUBANO has come a long way since people have a taste of it in 2006. With 9 branches now, Filipinos can enjoy its classic Cuban sandwiches or ‘Cubanos’ prepared the traditional way. This latest branch in Uptown Mall BGC will be different from the rest because it has expanded their menu as they introduced Cuban tapas which paired so nicely with their various cocktails. The branch, with its 12-seating company is also opened beyond mall hours for those who want to extend their happy hours while enjoying their food.
So, go satisfy your Cubano cravings and grab some Cuba to go with their other branches located at UP Town Center, Trinoma, SM North Edsa, Robinsons Place Manila, Glorietta, Shangri-la Plaza Mall, SM Megamall, Robinson’s Galleria.
