Stopped by ‘This little Piggy had Roast Beef” in the East Village today to try their well hyped sandwiches… Struck up a conversation with the chef William and managed to score a taste of the delicious Pastrami while waiting for my ‘THAT WAY’ sandwich with Roast Beef, Jus and Mozzarella on a Hero. Delicious. Well seasoned, meaty, salty and the bread was hearty enough to soak up the jus. Can’t wait to go back for the Pastrami on Rye…
Kit and I were walking around the East Village actually looking for a bite at our local Mexican place but instead we went to Porchetta and boy were we totally happy about it!
We were starving so we ordered a bunch of food….
The Porchetta Sandwich on Sullivan St Bakery bread….
The Porchetta Plate with beans (phipps farm organic cannellini beans cooked with carrots, celery, onion, garlic and a small amount of chili (entirely vegetarian)
and cooking greens (a combination of swiss chard, kale and broccoli raab sautéed with garlic and chili oil )
Crispy Potatoes & Burnt Ends -russet potatoes with left over porchetta scraps, olive oil and salt.
It was delicious. So salty, porky and tender…. the greens were vibrant in color and flavor and the potatoes were perfectly crispy and had little morsels of porky goodness thrown in for good measure. The beans had good depth of flavor with the carrots and celery cooked through and I could not stop eating… it was very good!
They also have a great salt they make in house that you can sprinkle over everything…. YUM!
Friendly staff and a cozy atmosphere inside the small eat in- dining space. ( probably room for 6 )
