|Goza-Goza's no-nonsense, cheese-filled Cuban sandwich ($6).|
We confess ourselves taken with San Francisco's enduring Cuban sandwich fixation, one taken up by both forces at work in the food scene ― the facifiers
and the gut-bombers
― and already the subject of a 2005 SF Weekly review
. This week, we walked by Goza-Goza
taco truck at Townsend and Fifth Street, and the smell of roast pork pulsing from the window caused us to do a double take. Goza-Goza does most of the taco-truck staples, but the guy who runs it is Cuban, so he's added guayabaya licuados and Cuban sandwiches. It's a workingman's Cubano, served on a soft bun, warmed but not pressed, and glued together with melted cheese. In fact, we'd swear it was the best Quizno's sandwich we'd ever tasted, except for that pork ― slow roasted, moist, and porkier than anything a chain would dare serve.Goza-Goza Taco Truck
