There are few restaurants in this world that offer food so good, you're willing to eat it standing up. Papo Llega y Pon, winner of a New Times Best of Miami award for best pork sandwich in 2009, is one of those places. More of a wraparound sandwich counter than an actual restaurant, it's worth checking out no matter how far you live from the Allapattah landmark. Opened by Papo 32 years ago, Papo Llega y Pon is now run by his daughter Julia who hasn't changed it much because, she says, "When something ain't broke, why try to fix it?" A constant flow of customers is a testament to the fact that everything at Papo's works just fine. The pan con lechon (pork sandwich) consists of delicious, mojito-marinated shredded pork on perfectly made Cuban bread. You gotta have it all the way - with onions and hot sauce - for the complete experience. And you can order it multiple ways, depending on your appetite and budget. For $4 you can get a six-incher; for just a dollar more you can upgrade to 12 inches. Or, you can order your pan con lechon on a half ($6) or whole ($12) loaf of Cuban bread. Wash it all down with a mamey milkshake ($3) or natural juice ($2.50) for a perfect meal.
