Chef-owner Hector Santiago’s second Latin sandwich bar El Super Pan is now open at Battery Atlanta (Braves SunTrust Park). The greatly-expanded OTP locale of the Ponce City Market kiosk is just down from Ford Fry’s El Felix at the corner of Legends Place and Battery Walk.

Santiago describes El Super Pan as “classic Latino bakery food”, like cubanos, pastelitos (Cuban pastry), and roasted sweet plantains. The chef’s Cubano Mixto pressed sandwich with roasted pork, ham, salami, Swiss cheese, pickles, and mustard served on Cuban bread thankfully made the OTP menu as did his mofongos—mashed, fried plantains, and Puerto Rico’s unofficial national dish.

On Friday, Santiago gave a quick tour of the restaurant to his Instagram followers. El Super Pan was technically open for business then for what is known in the restaurant industry as a “soft opening”.

The menu also features a hot dog from hot dog purveyor Pigman Goods. Santiago shot another quick Instagram video on Saturday talking up the new Sofrito dog, which he describes as “not shy.”

We got @pigmangoods Sofrito Hot Dog!!!!
