One of the most popular types of food in Cuba is the Cuban sandwich, which contains roasted pork, ham, Swiss cheese and pickles on crusty bread. Another popular type of food in Cuba is black beans and rice, which is called Moros y Cristianos, translating to Christians and Moors.
A sandwich that is similar to the Cuban, called the medianoche, uses a sweet bread instead of crusty bread and sometimes excludes ham. Some of the most popular snack items in Cuban culture include chicharrones, which are fried pork skins, plantains and yucca chips. One of the most popular dessert items in Cuba is flan.
