I made a trip to the Brooklyn Flea today and was pleasantly surprised to see Porchetta there serving their amazing sandwiches. If you are not familiar with these guys you are missing out. Porchetta is a small shop on the lower east side that is based on one item: pork, more specifically: porchetta.
The whole idea of porchetta is slow roasted pork heavily seasoned with herbs such as garlic, sage, rosemary and fennel pollen. It is cooked until the skin is all crispy and the pork is juicy and oh my god amazing! The sandwiches are served on a small(ish) roll for $5. At their lower east side location they are $10, but twice the size and simply amazing. The texture combination is incredible; the chewy bread, juicy tender pork and crispy skin! Go get one right now, you will not be sorry!
