Best Bites: Buchi Cafe Cubano

February 17 2009, 3:00 PM

Our new favorite hangout is the five-month-old Buchi Café Cubano, a Cuban-style breakfast and lunch spot in Sunnyside. Located a couple blocks east of Gelman's, this friendly spot dishes up traditional Cuban eats like zesty salads and pressed sandwiches. Menu highlights include the citrusy avocado salad--gorgeously fanned across the plate--and the hearty Cuban sandwich, a classic combo of roast pork, ham, Swiss cheese, pickles, onions, and mustard. Bonus: Do not miss ordering a large café con leche. This glorious drink tastes as thick and sweet as melted coffee ice cream, only hot. 2651 W. 38th Ave., 303-458-1328
