Pig's Ass Sandwich at Casellula
Dial up the cheese on a Cuban—this is a cheese bar, after all—and you'll get an idea. Thin shavings of Fiscalini Cheddar, nutty Fol Epi, and, er, pig's ass, with house-made bread and butter pickles whose bright crunch lightens each bite.
Crispy Pork Sandwich at Bark
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.
"The Firehouse" at Defonte's
A spin on a Philly classic—roast pork with broccoli rabe, cooked with garlic and pepper but still keeping a bit of a bite, piled in with sharp, sharp provolone cheese and the Defonte's signature: thin slices of fried eggplant. All on crusty seeded Italian bread that soaks up the pork juice.
Cubano at Margon
An under six-dollar sandwich stuffed with three meats, juicy roasted pork plus ham and salami, fusing with Swiss cheese, mayo, mustard, garlic, and thick slices of pickles in a beautiful rainbow of meaty, salty, creamy and sweet, hugged by classic barely-crusty Cuban bread. Delicious.
Bronx Bomber at the Franklin Corner Cafe
Insanely moist roast pork with Swiss cheese, barbecue sauce, jalapeño for a bit of heat, and avocado to cool it all down. On hot pressed bread, the components fuse together in a beautiful fatty, tangy union. Such a winner.
