Not only does this family-owned restaurant win the award for being the most criminally overlooked lunch spot in Silver Lake, but they also serve the best Cuban sandwich in the entire world (seriously). Plus, all of the sandwiches here, including that aforementioned Cuban, cost about $10, and their larger plates, like their ropa vieja, lechon asado, and marinated palomilla steak, cost less than $20. El Cochinito is available for takeout and delivery - call (323) 668-0737 or find them on the apps.
