Next time you’re in NYC and need a sandwich to go before a long train ride home, consider stopping by acclaimed chef, Sarah Jenkins’ Porchetta.
Only in NYC do you find a sandwich shop dedicated to one type of sandwich, a pork sandwich so tasty, no condiments required!. Marinated in spices such as rosemary and white wine, the Porchetta is a highly seasoned roast pork common in Italy as street food or festival food sold out of a truck as a sandwich. Porchetta did offer a few other sandwiches such as the Lebonese Chicken Sandwich, but the guy behind the counter informed me that the Lebonese Chicken “doesn’t travel well”.
The classic Porchetta sandwich at Porchetta was amazingly delicious, so flavorful and aromatic. My only disappointment was the size. I think I ate this sandwich in about five bites, albeit mammoth bites!
