I must say the pork was very tender, and extremely delicious. The fennel flavor worked so very well with the pork. My gripe is that the sandwich I was given was simply not good. The bread was too tough (maybe I went at the wrong time of day or had bad luck) the pork was too salty and greasy, and there was no acid. I think it could have definetley used an acidic element like vinegar greens. I must say that the pork fat though was milky and delicious and paired well with the salty pork meat, but I needed some acidic cleanse to pull the sandwich together. Also the crackings were so hard. They kept getting stuck in my teeth. Just not a good. I think the porchetta plate makes more sense, but the sandwich was a no go.

Getting Worse, Sorry To say

When Porchetta first opened across the street from my house, I was more than a regular. It fast became an addiction. The meat was savory and well spiced-very delicious. The sandwiches were a little pricey but so unique in flavor, I'd find myself buying three a day, My recent visits, however, have not been so good. The quality has dropped dramatically and the only spice of note, was salt, which overshadowed everything and made the whole thing difficult to choke down. Combine that with a bottled soda at $4.50-it was an overpriced disappointment that left me wondering what happened? The portions, never huge to begin with, have gotten even smaller…Porchetta…what's going on? I'm loyal but won't remain so in another poor showing or two.
