Lusicous Pork Party

Luscious (59 5th ave, Park Slope, Brooklyn 11217) looks like a high-end kitchen. You can tell that the focus is on the food. The tables and chairs, while perfectly fine, are clearly not the attraction. The point is the huge menu on the wall and the prepared food in the case. Judging by the decor […]

Jade and Pork at Banh Mi Saigon Bakery

Banh Mi Saigon Bakery (198 Grand St, between Mulberry and Mott) is a bit of a curiosity. You know what you’re going to get when you get there, a sandwich, duh, I mean hell, it’s right in the name “BAHN MI” and yet, when you walk in, under the gigantic ‘saigon bakery’ sign, there’s a […]

Obviously all their sandwiches use their amazing breads, but many also use other delicious house-made […]

Three Pigs Make One Magic Sandwich

Anthony Bourdain said it was “the best sandwich in america” and the “apex of the sandwich making art.” This is what first drew me to the three little pigs: if bourdain says it’s so good, I want to taste it. Thankfully, the ingredients aren’t so exotic and are much cheaper than a flight to Chicago. […]
