Media Noche SF
3465 19th St, San Francisco, CA
What we ordered:
El Cubano ($12.50) - roasted mojo pork shoulder, smoked ham, swiss, house pickles, mustard
Media Noche ($11.50) - Miami party sandwich; el cubano on sweet brioche
Mariquitas ($5.50) - crispy plaintain chips with famous green sauce
Midnight Mimosa ($10)
A few weeks ago, I typed "most Instagrammable places in San Francisco" into my Google search bar. Media Noche was one of them. I was drawn to the simple menu, effortlessly playful decor, colors, and the warm atmosphere.
Joe ordered the El Cubano while I ordered the Media Noche but we eventually traded our second halves. I liked the understated taste of the El Cubano and he preferred the stronger, meatier taste of the Media Noche and the sweet touch of the brioche. We both liked the plantain chips and I especially liked the tart green sauce that came with it. I'm going to make it a little mission of mine to find out how to replicate it!
If you're in the San Francisco area and looking for some lovely Cuban sandwiches, a great atmosphere, and some very pretty Instagram photos to go along with it, try Media Noche.
