If you get the chance to go to Puerto Rico, you have to seek out this fluffy bun called the mallorca. It is covered in powered sugar, and you can ask the bakery to press it in the sandwich maker with a slice of cheese inside of it. Some even go so far to also add ham, but that seems a bit much if you ask me. Sugar and cheese melt into a gooey mess and there is this perfect mixture of sweet and salty, low (sliced cheese) and high (local delicacy), evil and good.
