What makes a Cuban sandwich distinct is the fact that it’s pressed, resulting in a crispy, crunchy flat sandwich that looks deceptively thin but is packed with filling.
And the bonus? The pressing also results in a sandwich that’s easier to eat and doesn’t give you a plate or lap full of crumbs! Perfect for eating during meetings, watching movies, cocktail parties, etc.
Pepi Cubano opened its first shop in 2015, located at the heart of Legaspi Village, surrounded by the office buildings and residential condominiums housing its primary target market. Since then the company has been flooded with requests for the brand to open up for franchising from all over Metro Manila and even as far as Cebu.

WHERE IT ALL STARTED
It is the ORIGINAL Cuban sandwich brand in the Philippines. It started as a home-based business in 2006 offering a growing list of sandwich varieties for pick-up and delivery. The sandwiches were also introduced to the public via bazaars and events, including the famed Salcedo Market. The release of the movie “Chef”, where the main character opens a food truck selling Cuban sandwiches, led to a boost in popularity in Manila, and many requests for a full-pledged shop.
Our signature product, the Pepi Cubano is a native Cuban sandwich, which is a crispy, crunchy, classic Cubano. It is filled with slow roasted pork, ham, pickles, mustard and cheese. A freshly pressed sandwich made the traditional way and tasting the way you would expect a Cuban sandwich from the streets of Cuba to the busy business districts in the metro here in the Philippines.
It is the only restaurant that offers Cuban sandwiches and other products of Cuban and Latin American cuisine made with its own unique way, and at par in terms of quality with food served in their countries of origin.
Pepi Cubano serves up an exquisite dining and cultural experience and is essentially bringing you to Cuba from Manila.
