What makes your Cuban Sandwich so special that you have featured as one of the big winners at the 6th Annual Cuban Sandwich Festival.
-Our Tampa Girl Empamama (empanada) is made with an 18-hour slow Roasted Pork, Honey Ham, Genoa Salami, Swiss Cheese, Pickles and Tampa Girl Sauce. The ingredients are placed on a round piece of dough, pressed together and fried to perfection. For an added kick we definitely recommend trying it with our Yeehaw Sauce, a homemade creamy barbecue.
What do you enjoy most about competing at the Cuban Sandwich Festival and what does winning mean to you!?
-Tampa is known for it’s Latin food and the Cuban Sandwich is well known and enjoyed by many. The International Cuban Sandwich Festival in Tampa is the festival of festivals for the Cuban Sandwich and to have the opportunity to showcase our Tampa Girl at the event is in itself an amazing opportunity. To win, is an indescribable feeling. It makes me realize how incredibly proud I am of all the hard work our team has put into building Empamamas and am so thankful for every single person who has supported us in the last year. It encourages us to continue to focus on our customers first and deliver products our customers will value and enjoy. Most of all, winning to us makes us feel honored to represent Tampa Bay.
