Forget the Cronut, Café Mistral Introduces “The Fruban”
Calling all foodies! Calling all foodies! We have a new hybrid food item in Miami– Enter: Café Mistral’s “The Fruban” ($12). The already popular Cuban sandwich can be found at many restaurants in Miami, which is why the restaurant decided to recreate the traditional sandwich by adding a French twist.
Since Café Mistral is a fusion of French heritage with Miami roots, the blend offers a mix of traditional cuisine with a contemporary twist. Located a couple blocks North of South Pointe in South Miami Beach, on the intersection of Washington Avenue and 1st Street (110 Washington Avenue [Suite 6], Miami Beach, FL 33134). The popular sandwich has had people driving to Miami to taste the combination of a classic Cuban made with imported madrange ham, imported swiss cheese, mojo marinated pork, served on a baguette with whole grain mustard & cornichon (mini French pickles). Definitely worth a trip to the South. South Miami that is!
