This is a strange combination, but believe me, it is very good!
The story goes that Elena Ruz, a society young
debutante for which the sandwich is named, would stop at this little
all-night restaurant in Havana after leaving a dance with her group
of friends. She asked the waiter if they would fix her this sandwich
to her orders..... after checking with the kitchen, the waiter said
ok. From then on, she would always ask for her Elena Ruz
Sandwich and that is how it is now known.
