Best Thing We Ate This Week: Sunny Spot's Cuban Torta

If Roy Choi can make a curbside taco almost revelatory, just wait until you see what he can do with a traditional Cubano sandwich. At Sunny Spot - his Caribbean-themed Venice restaurant (and no, he's not Caribbean but that doesn't matter) - he takes it to the nth degree with pork terrine and prosciutto instead of ham and roast pork, and adds provolone, pickled jalapeno and mustard. It's familiar yet better, and mouthwateringly good. Get a side of the yucca fries and an icy rum swizzle from the bar, and you've got yourself a summer getaway. You know Sunny Spot is open for weekend brunch now, right? There's also a pretty great happy hour. Go. Find it at 822 Washington Boulevard.
