Who has the best Cuban sandwich? You'll be pressed to come up with an answer at the second annual Cuban Sandwich Festival in Ybor City. It's billed as a competition with more than 20 restaurants from across the state, but most of them are local. Not that that's a bad thing. Back to defend their title in the traditional category is Faedos On The Go food truck, based in Tampa. For the competition, a sandwich is considered traditional if made with mustard, pickles, swiss cheese, roasted pork, ham and salami. Any departure from that landed in the nontraditional category, which Gaspar's Grotto in Tampa won last year. Register at the event to join area celebrity judges and vote for the winner. The festival also includes food for sale, art, live music and dance performances. Free admission to the fest, which runs 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Saturday at Centennial Park, 1800 E Eighth Ave., Tampa. (813) 241-2442.
