5200 Monte Vista St
There are many sources I use to find out about restaurants. I was reading a story in the Eastsider LA and noticed another story about a hidden gem sandwich place in Highland Park called Monte 52, which is located inside La Tropicana Market.
I thought this sandwich was a bit dry and needed more mustard and mayo. But, the roasted pork was well cooked and seasoned. The thing about a Cuban sandwich is the variety of flavors, from the pork to the tangy pickles, and the mustard. This sandwich had most of it, but needed more mustard.
Service is good. The guy, who I believe is the owner, was nice and friendly. Though, he should have suggested a side item, when ordered with a sandwich $1, or ala carte $3. The pasta and potato salad looked pretty good in the display case.
I would go back to Monte 52 anytime for the Italian sandwich, what a great sandwich!
