The Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) will host an event dedicated to the science of the Cuban sandwich on September 16. There is a formula to a great Cuban sandwich. Tampa residents have passionate feelings about which deli/restaurant makes the very best in the city, while others will contest what ingredients comprise the perfect Cuban. The bread, the seasoning, the meat, the pickles, as Tampenos it’s our duty to hyper fixate on each and every ingredient.

Area experts will go head-to-head, unraveling the secrets of the iconic Tampa Bay Cuban Sandwich. Prepare to be amazed by the physics of bread baking, the chemistry of fillings, and the mind-blowing biology of taste and flavor. Don’t fret, this educational experience comes with plenty of samples to snack on.

Tickets are $25 for non-members, and $20 for members. This event has limited availability so you’ll want to secure your spot ASAP. Your admission includes 1 drink ticket, 1 raffle ticket, swag bag for the 1st 100 guests, live music and delicious food samples. 

MOSI is located at 4801 E. Fowler Avenue. In case you need another reason to visit the museum, they also just debuted a science-based mini golf course outside.

Local voters at the International Cuban sandwich Festival seem to have settled on two institutions that craft the best Cuban sandwiches around: Flan Factory and The Smokin’ Cuban.
