When is it okay to skip the hot dogs at Bark in Park Slope? When you order the crispy pork sandwich ($8.50). Just like the hot dogs, it's a lunch with childhood cafeteria appeal given an honest, thoughtful upgrade. Pork shoulder, belly, and jowl (sourced from Heritage Foods USA), pressed into an overwhelmingly porky deep-fried patty that audibly crunches as you bite in. Creamy, crisp slaw given a kick from thin rounds of Heirloom hot peppers, with whole-grain mustard and bread-and-butter pickles, all on a soft, seeded bun. Fatty, sweet, crunchy, spicy—there's so much going on in this sandwich.
