Tag Archives: Cuban sandwich


Formerly a church, Rustique now houses a wonderful eating establishment.  A friend had enjoyed  a number of meals there and mentioned that they were scrumptious.  The two of us soon motored to historic Suamico, a small village just north of Green Bay.

When we entered, Denise and I appreciated the original vaulted ceilings and hardwood floors of the chapel.  It was beautiful.  The place was hopping which is always a good sign of customer satisfaction.  We found seats and ordered Bloody Marys as we took a look at the menu.

An array of appetizers, salads, sandwiches, and baskets were offered.  They serve the traditional cod and perch fry every day which is music to the ears of many Wisconsinites.. The brick oven pizza looked outstanding and was their specialty, but their signature sandwich was a Cuban called “El Duque.” It boasted slow-roasted pulled pork, thick-sliced ham, pickle, red onion, Swiss cheese, mustard, and mayo.  We lingered over our tasty drinks and finally made our decisions.  Denise and  I couldn’t resist the “El Duque.”  We were not disappointed.  We both upped the standard French fries with orders of Pesto fries.  If you like pesto, these potatoes  should be on your list.  I’ll order them again.  The sandwich was very hearty and filling, yet seemed to melt in my mouth.  True Nosh!20150522_165619278_iOS20150522_173717314_iOS

Another Nicky’s Lunch

I enjoyed my lunch so much the first time I went to Nicky’s Lionhead Tavern, I had to go back.  On my first visit to this old pub in De Pere, Wisconsin, 20150513_175503231_iOS20150513_175531058_iOSI ordered a Rueben, with  thick pastrami, tangy kraut, and Swiss cheese..  Delicious!  It was good enough to order again the second time, but I wanted to try something different.  I went with the Cuban sandwich, featuring slow roasted pork, smoked ham. and Swiss cheese.  The mustard and pickle gave it added zip  Each sandwich came with fries, a pickle, and a full feeling that lasted for hours.  Of course, this lunch started with a Bloody Mary, too.  A true nosh!
