A Sandwich a Day: Crispy Pork Sandwich at Bark

A Sandwich a Day

A new sandwich every day.

In this great city of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year—so that's what we'll do. Here's A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around New York. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.

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.
